The Presidential Aircraft and the Lockheed Electra

I loved working at JFK
by Frederick A.

I worked at Lockheed from 1953 to 1969. I was hired as a “B” mechanic, and I worked my way up to management. I worked in Area A on the Presidential Aircraft and updated the aircraft’s engines and performed other modifications. I also worked on the Lockheed Electra (Project "Up-tilt") and on commercial airliners.

I was then put in charge of the terminal service crew, handling all the international airlines to JFK (Idlewild Airport). I had 16 years of enjoyable service with Lockheed. I then worked at an airline as a technical engineer. Congratulations on 100 years!
