Airplane Stuff

I have been working on airplanes since 1989. Over the years I have come to love and hate different aspects of airplanes. Being a person of mechanical nature I enjoy fixing damaged airplanes. I really like performing modifications to the structure of an airplane, the challenges associated with that are immense.

Here are some misc. airplane pictures.
