Re-Creating Flight

Training some of America’s best was a dream come true
by Howard P.

I went to work at Link in July 1965 and took an early retirement on December 31, 1990. I worked on three Apollo simulators, one of which was used to figure out how to get Apollo 13 back to earth. I also worked on C-130 simulators; three Space Shuttle simulators; and various simulators for military and commercial aircraft, many of which were built by Lockheed Martin. I donated my time to help at the family picnic and the children’s Christmas party. I really enjoyed supporting our nation and its aircrews. Congratulations Lockheed Martin!
