It's not bad - can be stressful but generally good.

I work Line maintenance in Melbourne so look after aircraft as they transit ( Qantaslink - i.e. Southern, Sunstate, Airlink, Eastern but not Impulse).

Meet aircraft, kick tyres, gas 'em up and push them out. Then back to the sofa in the office to watch ESPN :D

Work 4 11 hour days then 4 day off.

Been there done that - for 12+ years.

Now I buy, lease and sell aircraft (including for Southern). Drop me a line Brendan if you have Lotus notes - PAS09. I will then convert you to Ford!

We can talk about BAe 146s and white powdered aluminum too......

Actually guys(and girls) we have all the Ford teams,drivers and transporters lined up in the carpark behind plant 2 from 11.00 AM till 1.00 PM tomorrow(Thursday).Its for employees but I'm sure we wont be too harsh on any fordforums readers who turn up for a look.I wouldn't want it open to all but you guys are part of the family.Any issues tell them to call me,but I will be over there myself for an hour or so around 12.00.

No night shifts for us - woo hoo

Work 4 in a row of either 0545-1645, 0730-0630 or 1015-2115. They rotate.

Aussie Pete - I'm not important enough to have a Lotus address, even though I'm a Kiwi. However can you get us some new Dash 8's tomorrow, ours are a bit old. And as far as white aluminium and 146's - I was a heavy maintenance lead hand for Ansett New Zealand, they were some rusty buckets of crap.
