A Chip off the Old Block

I followed in my father’s footsteps
by James W.

My dad worked for Consolidated Aircraft Corporation circa 1943. I still have his Kennedy toolbox with a placard that reads, “Dub Warriner, Consolidated Aircraft Corporation.” Fortunately, I have been able to keep all the vintage tools that he worked with in the wood fab wing department. I started working for General Dynamics in February 1988. I worked in the F-16 sheet metal wing dept. drilling and assembling spars and ribs in the wing frame.
