I grew up in Cape Canaveral FL
watching Saturn V's and other rockets taking off, and have been at Boeing for 20 years in August. I've worked in the machine shops in Portland and Auburn, and 737, 747, 757, 767 Final Assy, Pre-Flight at Renton Field and 747-400 flight test, and the delivery center at BFI
. Now I have the Lead Tech Designer spot for Engineering Supplier Liaison. We get any issues with manufacturing of details and assys by our domestic and overseas suppliers on every airplane Boeing builds that starts with a 7. Including out of production (707, 727), in production (737, 747, 757, 767, 777) and future production (7E7). I dislike parts of my job sometimes, but I still love aviation and photography of aircraft. Enjoy the heck out of it, and if things get boring, look for other doors to open somewhere else in the Av market.
