Oldsailor65: I've got extensive exposure with Skunk Works out of Burbank and Palmdale; first in the mid seventies flying Twin engine Huey's (HN-1Ns supporting Air Force Special projects and DOE underground nuke testing R-4808. Again in the late 80s and early 90s special projects supporting the battle staff out of Tonapah.
It was about ten years of the best flying of my life! I finished up at UPS flying both freight & folks to the Caribbean! Forty years total, not bad!!!

It sounds a lot more exciting than my life has been repairing office machines and computers.
