I started my career at Rolls-Royce uk, as apprentice aero engine fitter in 1970. Progressed through marine gas turbine service engineer, fast jet engine representative on lightnings with RAF, helo engine rep with RNAS on seakings and lynx, overseas rep in sweden, indonesia, brazil and germany for last 25 years on Fokker 27, 28, 100, airbus a321 v2500 and a330 with trent 700. Took early pension after 38 year with Rolls-Royce, a great company with fanatically dedicated people. I miss them lots and the smell of airplanes. Spending time now between my 60' narrowboat on english canals,and my 2nd home in indonesia.
