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.

Aircraft Engineer for Southern (or QantasLink as were are apparently known now)
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......

Is that a shift roster Brendan, like two night and then two day?
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.

Don't worry Geoff, I dont think anyone here would think any less of you for getting the day's mixed up. I'm the same most of the time. ;) I'm also honoured by the invite. thankyou. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to get there,(work n all). Can you say what the occasion is, with this little get together.Photo shoot?
Russell.:cool:

On another issue Geoff I see that you are a Swans supporter and do some work on the bench occasionally, any chance of getting you over to the Bombers. Surely this would be benfictial in getting Ford back to the Number 1 spot just like the mighty Dons.
OK I doubt it would change the sales for Ford but atleast you wouldn't be annoyed every Monday morning after a loss.:D

Essendon fan are like Holdens fans, theyre bandwagon supporters only. I remember 2 years ago when everyone was in love with the Kangaroos formerly known as North Melbourne. Geoff all ive gotta say to you is go for the mighty Catters!! (Geelong Football Club). Remember Ford Australia's sponsored GFC for coming on 76 years now which A milestone in any mans language, and as Far as I know Is a world record for the longest major sponsorship of a Sports club in the world. Geoff june sales indicate that The Falcon is still selling more than the commodore in Geelong which shows that the sponsorship is still paying dividends.
As for you Adam W, well we'll jsut have to wait till this Sunday round 15 Essendon V Geelong and that'll seperate the boys from the men. Remember We beat the Fagpies (Collingwood) by 18 points and yous only beat then by 7?? or something like that in the anzac clash so Theoretically we should beat you by 11 points :D :D :D

I have told Frank Costa( the president of Geelong) that the sponsorhip will go on forever as far as I am concerned,just as long as he doesn't invite me to the football.As a life member of the Swans the chances of me switching to Geelong,Essendon or anyone else are zero.

Cough, cough, splutter, clear throat, "Boss, I'm not feeling to good. May not be in tomorrow.... ;) "

"Qantas reservations? Yes I'd like to book a ticket......."
"Hertz Club Gold? I'd like to reserve a Ford vehicle for...."

A new Dash 8 is on the way for October as of this week. But it's not for you guys!
With the 146s, don't you work them too? If so, I was talking wing spars which you could probably identify with????
