A Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity

I worked on remarkable aircraft
by Angelo P.

In 1956, I had the opportunity to work for Lockheed. During the years of my employment, I worked on several aircraft—the L-1049 Super Constellation, the L-1649 Starliner, the L-188 Electra, the L-1011 TriStar, the C-5 Galaxy, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-117 Nighthawk and the U-2. I also worked on the Polaris missile program. I retired from Skunk Works in 1994 as a tool and die maker. I was very happy and enjoyed my years of 36 years of working for Lockheed.
