Flat Stanley Goes to Norway
Hi, My name is Pat Murphy. I am a self-employed software engineer from
I am headed to Norway to upgrade the airfield lighting system at Oslo's
New airport. On my trip, I am accompanied by Flat Stanley. My son Michael
and his third grade class prepared Stanley. They attend Mrs. Humbert's
and Mrs. Davis' class at Norwich Elementary School in Hilliard, Ohio.
Our adventure begins, with the trip over to Norway. Follow the link below to
see pictures from the flight.
The Trip Over
Next we will meet some of the people, I am working with on the project.

On Friday evening we got done early so we decided to take the high
speed train to Downtown Oslo. The train was added when the airport
was built to get passengers quickly from the airport to the city.
We spend a number of days upgrading the computer systems and testing. The
computers are spread around the airport. Some are near the runways and some
are in the control tower. My computers are located near the end of each
runway in an electrical substation.
Working at the Airport
At the end of my trip I turned over Flat Stanley to a Norwegian
associate, Torbjorg. Stanley's adventure will continue from her family.
