I Wanted to Design the Next Fighter Jet

I kept my eye on the prize
by James H.

I have always loved airplanes. My father is a retired chief master sergeant who flew on C-141s. That was my first introduction to Lockheed. I grew up wanting to be a pilot of F-16s, but instead of going into the military, I went to college and majored in engineering because I wanted to help design the next fighter jet. When I graduated, I always had my eye on Lockheed Martin, and when an opportunity that fit my skills came up, I went for it. I've been here 10 years since.
