On the Flight Line

My memories and heart remain there 
by Vellettia A.

Can you imagine meeting the pilots of the Thunderbirds! After all, they were flying the planes that I helped build. And where I lived, and still do, was in the flight line. To this day, I remain grateful for the opportunity to work at Fort Worth. It is part of a tradition. I have a photo my grandfather, E.C. Meek, with soldiers during World War II and his layoff paperwork as well, from the slowdown right after the war.

Working on the flight line is a proud family tradition.
