    Surprising find€¦under the felt in the garage roof!
    There I was covered in dust from years gone by, tearing the last bit of felt from the underside of my workshops roof, thinking why ever did I start this task€¦. When out fell some old wallpaper onto the floor, amongst it was this little find€¦



    Which was nice!

    Part of my job concerns the inspection for quarantine pests on arriving aircraft. While I was taking my basic training classes in Maryland we went over to Dulles to see airport operations. As was our luke one of these birds had just landed and we took a tour of it. The RAF had weekly flights from England to Belize. They would do a tech stop at Dulles then continue their journey. There is one thing about a military transport, for the most part unlike commercial passenger aircraft the seats face the tail. this is supposed to be safe in case of an accident.
    While working at San Francisco Int'l Airport I have the oppurtunity to see many grat and rare planes. Lufthansa's Ju-52 "Tante Ju" flew over me as I was hurrying in to work A Confederate Air Force PBY took off from the runway, that was a sight, as it slowly, almost mothlike left the earth. At Moffet Airfield I saw NASA's U-2 take off. That thing just went straight up. The P-3 Orion crew I was with had their chins hitting the ground seeing that.
