I was originally employed by Bell Aerospace. In 1995, Textron, who owned Bell Aerospace, elected to terminate operations at its location in Wheatfield, New York. There were innumerable technologies developed there, and we were devastated, fearing these programs would lose their identity. When we learned we were going to be part of the Lockheed Martin team, we confident that our successful programs would continue. Thank you, Lockheed Martin!
