I don´t know if this topic was brought up before but I think it would be very interesting to see what the people of this international community do for a living? For instance I am and agricultural engineer and I work in surveillance and control of crop pests (Not from an airplane http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).

I'm a wanna-be game progammer that ended up as a Software Architect developing boring enterprise business applications in .NET. (yawn)

But, my dad was an aviation mechanic in the Marines in WWII stationed near Ewa beach on Oahu (after the Pearl Harbor attack). He was assigned to maintaining Corsairs. He never spent time on a carrier because the one he got assigned to was damaged and didn't get repaired until the war was over. Lucky for me he never saw any action.

His job every morning was to start the plane he was responsible for and go through a checklist. Then he would often take a nap on the curved wing. Pretty cool.

I'm a Lutheran pastor.

My dad was also an aviation mechanic on Oahu during the final months of the war...but with the Navy. He enlisted dreaming of becoming a Hellcat pilot, but found out he was green-red colorblind. They made him a mechanic. He spent most of his time on Oahu in the months after the war removing engines from Helldivers and Avengers. He said they fixed them and oiled them up so that they were like new and packed them in wooden crates. Later he heard that the Navy took all those engines out to the middle of the Pacific and dumped them.

He became an orthopedic surgeon after the war and also a private pilot. We spent our vacations flying around in a Cessna 206.

Hand model.
That was my hand that dropped the ball bearing on the Infinity automobile seams. The Infinity commercial was supposed to show how well their build quality tolorences were, thinking that tighter, more even seams between doors and hood lines would convey quality. But that was my hand. (Jordans Furniture did a similar spoof of the commercial and dropped a ball bearing on the sofa cushion seam....my hand)

I model watches... rings....etc etc. During close ups of hands in movies (like displaying the contents of a letter while someone reads it) I was a hand double for Brad Pitt. (His hands are terrible...he bites his nails.)

I was also the infamous manly hands in the Seinfeld episode where Jerry didn't like this seemingly perfect girl because of man hands.

Currently I'm unemployed in modeling because of a video card. Yup a video card. I was removing my old one and it was tight in it's slot. I pulled and my hand slipped off of the card and smacked against the HD rail and sliced my hand pretty bad....well bad enough they can't use me.

So, now I run a video production studio.

Yes that's one of mine, thanks for the compliment. I liked your feathered ring a couple of pages back, but didn't want to turn the thread into an arty shmoozefest for fear of flames, but what the hell? That's a seriously nice piece.

I was a pipefitter/welder until I got into a fight with a stalk of 6" schedule 40 carbon steel pipe. The piece of pipe won the fight. Disabled with a very bad back now. But working on getting a movie script sold and possibly participating in the making of it. I also write songs for a couple of publishers here in Nashville. I haven't had a cut yet though. I will eventually I feel, or at least I hope.

I support people who use computers....
Mostly software related. A little bit hardware related.
And usage related ... (How do I ....?)
I do some programming.

Mostly I try to analyse the problems people have with their puters.
And guide them into the right direction to a solution.
I advise them with my thoughts on their upcoming developments... and foresee bottlenecks and troubles.... and tell them to... and not to....

Biggest problem here, is that I do that 40 hrs a week (sometimes more) and now I find myself doing it outside office hours... over here.... (so much for IL2 as a hobby... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

Greetings All,

I'm new at this forum so this looked like a good place to introduce myself.

Most of my flight simming was MS based beginning with FS98 and FS Combat and upgrading through FS2004 and FS Combat 3. But I recently received a gift of AEP. Not owning IL2-FB, I purchased it and haven't touched an MS Flight Sim since. Just added PF in a merged install and am lovin' it.

What I do... My current, and I hope final career, is as an avation safety inspector with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Prior to this I enjoyed a 25 year career as a professional pilot. 15 years of it as a chief pilot, company check airman and flight standards officer.

Prior to that: USAF

Prior to that: A motorcycle mechanic and maintenance dept mgr.

Salute!

I'm a graphic artist currently under contract with a regional paper as well as having my own business with clients ranging from local businesses to international music groups and warbird owners. Worked for almost a decade doing mainly t-shirt designs for a small screen printing business in Ohio, but am glad those days are over!

Formerly semi-pro musicians (bassist) toured in the heyday of big hair bands but have played everything from country to thrash metal, jazz and blues to classic rock.

Somewhere in there I also wrote for several small-press music publications on a free-lance basis and had a few articles get picked up by national magazines.

I finally gave into my muse and have been creating a multimedia CD-ROM about the USAAF's 79th. Fighter Squadron during World War II for nearly 2 years. It is tentatively scheduled for an August, 2005 release after almost 8 years of research.

Beyond that I am a divorced father of 1 living in "co-habitational bliss" with my girlfriend of almost 13 years and three cats. Needless to say, I have no social life and I don't get much sleep.

Being an EMT is not a job that would allow you an extravagant lifestyle or a regular 9-5 schedule. The job is stressful, risky, emotional, physical, and would hardly allow for any praise from the public. EMTs complain about the low pay, even though pay differs depending on where you work and for whom you work (private company, hospital, or fire department), complain about stupid 911 calls (''I smacked my little toe on the shopping cart again''), complain about hours, the nature of the job, and everything else there is to complain about.

Took some time out in the early 80's and worked as a cowboy for a big ranch in Wyoming. Pay sucked bilgewater but the worries were few nad life was good.

Gave up on that, went back to driving tanker trucks.

Got burned out with sloshing and deadly stuff behind me and went to work as a truck driver for Anthony Crane Rental. They turned into Maxim Crane Rental. hauled a lot of BIG stuff. Ran a few cranes and pickers when the trucking was slow.

I now work for the TX DOT. I along with one other guy are responsible for keeping over 10K road signs up and readable. We have over 800 lane miles to patrol in a very high traffic urban environment. Our signs are targets for the motoring public. So are we. It gets pretty spooky with people on cell phones driving by you, mere inches from your derriere at speeds in excess of 80mph. Never a dull moment when we're trying to take care of bidness on the side of the road. Haven't been hit yet but have had to vacate the area in a hurry in more than one instance.

Wow! A Jungmann! So very cool, where was yours built? (I just checked the registry, your baby is living in Arizona now - did she have the Lycoming when you had her?) I've been nuts for Buckers ever since reading about a Spanish pilot (sorry don't remember his name) diving into a stadium, rolling his wheels on the ground, SNAP ROLLING, and flying out again! (And Sam Burgess's 'Jungmeister Junket' didn't hurt either) It's interesting to compare the British and German basic trainers, Tiger Moth vs. Jungmann, so totally different...

Hey ivankuturkokoff, would your Pacific airline keep it's freight haulers in Chicago?

(to Top_Gun_1_0_1, no sim is perfect, I've been lucky enough to train in level D sims for Lr45, Be1900, and CJ2, the interfaces (cockpits) are exactly right (except for being cleaner), the graphics are much worse in detail but better in presentation, and motion is fun (we used to get the 1900 sim to fall off motion at least once a session) but studies show it's not critical to training. But in general, they were all a little (at least) different from the real thing. Il2 is very good, but it's not flying.)

Good to see lots of pros with interesting jobs around here. Quite a mixed bag I have to say.

Here is my little part:

Dropped out of Uni some 17yrs ago by own decision; didn't like the wanna-be athorneys running around in suit and tie in their first year of Uni. Nor the gegologists with their mountain boots in downtown...
Worked part time then, about 5 months per year, for the Swiss Post. Going postal has been a part of my life since then.

Visited Asia first during my Uni days and felt comfortable there. Have been there the remaining time, 7 months per year, for the past 16 years or so. China, Laos, Hongkong, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singpore, Vietnam, Philippines, Myanmar, Thailand. One highlight has been sailing for few months on my buddies wooden build 49ft catamaran (with bamboo crab claw type of rig) in the pacific - Kiribati (Tarawa!) to Fiji via Tuvalu, Wallis and Futuna.

Currently working on a guide book on Myanmar (in print in Bagnkok now), trying to do something with all the experience I accummulated over many years in Asia.

Took (tens of-)thousands of photographs along the way, shot down Spits and P-40 whenever time permitted or won and lost a few battles on the eastern fornt depending on my Tigers perfomance, have done few skin mods too and enjoy computer graphics but there is sadly not enough time in my life to do more, I mean I got only 7 months per year off, not enough.


Few pics are here (from Asia, not from the Spits or Tigers):
image galleries from Asia (http://www.worldisround.com/home/tools4fool/index.html)

Working on my own little webpage now to promote my upcoming guidebook and having a own place where I can display my images instead of some free image server with all the advertisement and limited layout creativity.

Would love to go back to painting again and planting a tropical garden somwhere outside of Bangkok. Will work on that soon too...

Life has been good.

Wow! A Jungmann! So very cool, where was yours built? (I just checked the registry, your baby is living in Arizona now - did she have the Lycoming when you had her?)

853N was a Czech Avia Jungmann, built in 1946 from airframes left over from a LW license contract during the war. When I had it, it had the original inverted four Walter Minor, a Czech engine inspired by the Gypsy four in the Moth. LW instruments on the panel. The Walter Minor was an incredibly fussy engine. Starting procedure was rotating the prop by hand backwards ten times, then forward three times, then priming until you saw a little fuel dripping from the drain lines under the inverted cylinders. Mags on, you got somebody to prop it. If it didn't catch on the first or second prop, the cylinders were flooded--you might as well push it back in the hangar and come back another day. 800 pounds or so empty, stressed for plus/minus 6 gs, and controls as harmonized as a Spitfire's. I gotta stop--it's like that beautiful girl you somehow met in a bar twenty years ago and knew you wanted to spend the rest of your life with, but you lost her phone number.

Here is a better shot of me, took this one after the big good looking guy left.. Had to wait for him to leave, he kept jumping in front of every camera within 50ft

well - the condition you are in...faded, barely legible, and somewhat stand off-ish if you will is dam near perfect correlation to your forum persona ...lol.

Now I am wondering what condition those radioactive materials referred to must be in by now...judging by the look of you and all that neglect and decay...(I mean that in the best possible way ofcourse http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif )

I imagine some developer is just waiting for that fence to rot away sos he can pick up the land on the cheap and build condo's on it....

I work for a heavy haul transportation company that specializes in transportation of ammo and explosives. I personally oversee transportation of armoured prototype tanks and vehicles. My main focus is movement throughout the country of howitzers, cannons, marine helicopter blades, a prototype of amphibious tank currently in testing and development, military robotics and machine guns. And yes, it is all dual driver, satelite and escort with armed guards. I'm quite busy because we are at war even if it does not look like it on the homefront. I cannot go much deeper than that as it is a gov't clearance job and most if not all that I do is hush hush.

I just flew in there last week for an overnight layover. We stayed in Bethlehem at the Comfort Inn and spent the rest of the day drinking beer at the Tally Ho bar up the street.

The pic in my sig was taken at University Park airport in State College (that's Mount Nittany in the background) by a friend of the Captain a couple of years ago.

Gigol² amateur.

Apart from that, I have a boring job in a public office, managing the legal state of ONGs. I previously worked for the Ministry of Culture as resource manager and advisor for the local archaeological sites. And before that, I managed public funds for the legal courts and so.

And before that, I frantically tried to increase birth rate in Europe with scarce success due to the use of anticonceptive methods.
