Art by Torill Sæther Krekke.

















The Norwegian Cancer Society (NCS) is a national volunteer organisation, and there are 8 district offices. Yesterday I visited the one here in Stavanger and I saw art by Torill Sæther Krekke.
Sometimes images make me stop. Memories came back in seconds. It was strong.....

The Heliport.














For years I have passed the heliport (next to the airport).
Last week I attended a guided tour.
There was a lot  of building activity going on inside  to make it better and more up to date.
So many people were waiting..... the weather was not good for using the helicopters that day!
Anyway, one thing that caught  my eye was when I saw all these SURVIVAL SUITS.
Many people have to wear them to and from work out on the oil rigs.
Here in Stavanger, which is named "the oil capital," there are
so many people involved in the oil business one way or another.

Airport Emergency Services
















They are always ready to roll at a moments notice in any emergency.
The boots and trousers are ready on the mat (as you see in the photo), and they train hard to reach any location at the airport in less than 120 seconds.

Up in the control tower.
















I visited the control tower today.

It was not the first time, but it still amazes me the fact that there are people who day and night follow the weather, all the traffic to and from all the oil rigs (helicopters), as well as more than 62 direct destinations and passing traffic......
The airport is undergoing a lot of work, and there will be plenty of new facilities coming in the future.
As you can see the weather was very different from yesterday.
