|Now that would have been some job. I can't imagine much more interesting places to be than somewhere where one could watch A-10s as well as the practice sessions of the Air Force aerobatic team .. |
If there's one thing I retained from my childhood to present day, it would be the love of aviation and 'those magnificent men in their flying machines'. Growing up we lived only about 20 miles from what was then called a SAC base, and watching the B-52s and 135s go about their daily business was one of our main 'hobbies'. Even today, whether a passenger jet, helicopter, turboprop or small Cessna, I still have to look up when I hear a plane going overhead.
I got an assignment to an aviation unit as a legal clerk in the army, and was overjoyed. I sure spent a lot of weekends up flying along with the pilots who had to cram their required hours in on a Saturday or Sunday. I could not understand how some of them seemed to treat the requirement as a burden!
Yep, working close to such an area as you describe would surely be a great place to work, in my book. Free 'recreation', available any time one wanted.
