From Soup to Nuts

I started at Lockheed in the 1950s
by Ernest F.

I worked at Lockheed in the 1950s. What a time that was, for it was one of the best places I had ever worked. I was assigned to the second shift, and I met a lot of really nice people in management. I was amazed that you could see the entire plane, from nuts and bolts to a completed aircraft. I remember those years as "really good times".

I left California in the late 1970s and opened a bar, a place I ran for 20 years. It was quite a change, but my choice. I'm retired now. I take it easy and walk a lot, which is always good. My mind often drifts back to Lockheed, and I think of the plant in Burbank. To my very good friends at Lockheed Martin, I wish you only the best!
