I Worked the Flight Line

Supporting the Hercules and the Galaxy
by Ralph W.

My career started with Lockheed in March 1969. I worked on the flight line and as a flight test mechanic. I worked on the C-130 and C-5A aircraft until 1972. I was recalled in 1979 as a flight test mechanic working on the C-5A.

Once the C-5B line started up, I became a supervisor for three years, returned to the flight line as a mechanic. I went back to supervision, until I retired in 1997. I enjoyed my time at Lockheed Martin and having a lot of friends there. I miss them. I can't say I miss working too much. I am enjoying my life, fishing and working around the house.
