When the bird lifts off and the plane is hanging there in the sky on it's engines, I always wonder if anyone checked the oil lately. :-/

.... and now maybe NOT!!!

Until the industry gets back on it's feet, I think I'm grounding myself and as far as the 737 MAX is concerned, Hell No , I'll never set foot on one of them

The first week of having four people left in my work group .
One additional person was allowed to retire, paperwork got lost in the 'machine' .
By Wednesday, the full impact of this program came to the light of day for management .
They had not trained people to do a few of the jobs that no other person in the company knew how to do .
I got one of them on Tuesday morning .
The person that previously did this job agreed to stay on until the last day of September to get me properly trained .
Rumor has it that he was offered 6 months pay to do this .
But I can't complain, I'm now in a controlled environment, cooled in the summer and heated in the winter .
Before I worked in the hangar and what ever the conditions were outside is what you worked in, except for rain .
'81 R65
'82 R65 LS ?
'84 R65 LS
'87 Moto Guzzi V65 Lario
'02 R1150R
Riding all year long since 1993 .
I'll give up my R65, when they pry my cold dead hands from the handlebars !!!!!

Good for you Bob, sounds like a major upgrade! Especially at this time of year.
