|A Silhouette of one of the three amigos. Which One is this?||Well, he's one of these two.|
he's not this guy. This guy is Terry. He was a GSE
Systems Electrician). Terry was also a very smart guy and
liked Lincolns.. He bought an early 1980's jet
black Lincoln Continental whose electrical system fried.
He fixed it
and put it all back together himeself. Heard he went to work

the fore front was from Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

Australia was a lot of fun. We were there for the

Sydney for the celebration.
was an electrician and
a very good pool player. He
probably could have made a living at it. In Australia he
beat the Australians at snooker, which made for some rather tense
moments at times.
Sleeping was a popular past time. Never seemed to get quite enough of that.
|This is another Jim, who was kind enough to pose inside the module of an Allison 501K17. He was a GSE and I think he re-enlisted.|
|Halloween. Need I say more?||Me, standing in front of the main reduction gear with one of the pinion covers lifted off. This is from a group of photos labeled 'Reduction Gear Fiasco'. I don't really remember what the fiasco was, but to be pulling covers off, it must have been serious.|
|As I said.......||You never could quite get enough sleep.|
|It could get pretty boring underway.||A great time to play with camera filters.|
