This jet was a pretty decent bird to work on for the time I had at this base, no major breaks that I can remember, and I got signed off on most of my 5-lvl task working here. Anyone that new me at this time, would tell you I was a dirtbag, and it was true, but thats just cause I hadn't embraced my job yet. Now I love getting dirty, I love doing maintenance, I love crewing jets, theres not a feeling like it in the world.
