OT - Jobs and Family

Reading MTPockets post about changing jobs....and Brent's post about the tank engine in a Mustang reminded me of my brother-in-laws job....one I wouldn't mind...buying and selling war plans.

Check out his Cool Airplanes. What he does not show yet is the P38 he has...in case any of you have watched the Discovery channel, you have seen her....they pulled out from under 275' of ice in Greenland....Glacier Girl...I even have a part of the original plane....

What does this have to do with us? Well....Simon fell into that job by accident....he has a BA degree....was delivering Pizza's for a living....bumped into the right guy who gave him a gofor job at Chino airport....next thing you know he was running one of the top war bird rebuilding hangers in the nation....built 2 Oshkosh Grand Champions....then the owners sons fired him thinking they could run the business better...they are now bankrupt. Simon was out of work for 2 years...ended up having to move back in with the parents....now he is president of the above company....long story on how that happened.....but I get part credit....

MTPockets....ya gota enjoy going to work, so no, it's not too late to change....Brent....I think a Merlin V12 in a jeep would be cool.....and that reminds me, I have a ride in a P51 Mustang waiting for me.....

Re: OT - Jobs and Family

Green? Want to see green?



This is Glacier Girl...the only thing that sucks is that she is a one seater so my chances of getting a ride in her are, well, lets just say that it can't get that cold down there....

Here is a little background on her...BTW...it was Iceland, not Greenland...my bad.

Re: OT - Jobs and Family

I was at Oshkosh the time all this started. I remember their DC-3 at the EAA Airshow with some scraps of parts there, even bought a T-Shirt to help support (well, OK, it was just a cool T-Shirt). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/headspin.gif[/img]

Just remember, Greenland is mostly ice and Iceland is mostly green. Go figure.
