He (the Controller) assessed that his remaining Inspector
and the Licensed Technicians should, if properly organised,
be sufficient to supervise the required overnight Base
Maintenance workload. So, he offered to take over the

task was noted, at 22:00hrs, in the Airline's Line
Maintenance log'' (Section 1.1).
