Winter 2022

 Winter has finally come to the high desert, temps have fallen and small amounts of snow are on the ground. The projects keep coming in and it is always easier to dream the job than it is to do and with each job comes a challenge that I have never seen before. It takes a village to sometimes complete the jobs I take on and if it was not for the village of aviation I would not be in business. When it came to having to paint a wing I had just repaired a villager just finished up his paint booth, when a hanger was needed for a plane another villager happened to have one available, it is just the way it is in aviation. Old planes keep coming in the door that looked as if they have not been touched in 70 years and yet have been touched so many time they have layers like an onion and each layer tells a story of the mechanics who have gone before. Each has a story.
