  1. Ah, the UK, OK. I grew up with a friend, teen years, whose father brought the family over from the UK. His father was a mechanic with lots of seniority at Pam American Airlines. They moved the whole family to the US Pam Am did. His father got me my first job out of the Navy where I was a jet engine mechanic on F4B's as an Aircraft Cleaner at Pan Am. It was where everyone started until they had enough seniority to union bid for a better job every 6 months. In one year I was an interior mechanic and on the first trained 747 maintenance crew. "You have a future here, we are even selling space flight reservations" Then I got laid off with 2 1/2 years there as Pan Am started falling apart. John Roberts, I'll never forget him as he and his father got me started on life. After some 20 years in aerospace, mostly as a Jig & Fixture Builder, a.k.a. tool maker, I got tired of lay-offs and switched to my hobby, computers. Been on my current job 16 years now
