    Hello

    Hello to all. I'm a new member here. I'm a retired FAA Airworthiness Inspector from the AMR-CMO at DFW. Joined Air Force 1960-1964 as a SAC trained killer on B47's at Dyess AFB and Plattsburgh AFB. Employed by a major air carrier. Then was an Air Reserve Techican (ART) at March AFB and Carswell AFB. Went with the FAA in 1980 at their Lubbock,Texas office and transferred to DFW in 1990 from where I retired in 2011.

    I suspect I'm a bit older than most of you here,but don't let that stop you from asking questions. My two favorite airplanes are the B47 and the B727.

    Thank you. Everyone seems to be amazed at how long the BUFF has been in service,but either forget or don't know that the KC-135 is right up there with the BUFF in terms of length of service.

    I see you live in Long Island. I was born in Rochester and raised in Henrietta.

    Hello sir and welcome. My Dad was a USAAF-trained killer in the B-24 and -25. Got me into aviation but I only hang around as a hobbyist as I work in insurance to pay the bills
