    I got a new job. I am now working for a place called Reliance Aerotech. They are an aviation contract firm, so the actual place I'm doing the work at is Timco, in Macon, GA. We work on America West aircraft- A320, B737, & B757s. The pay is good, but the best part is most of it is "per diem" so its tax free. I only pay tax on the first $6/hr:D The only bad part is, legally per diem is only tax free for a year. So I'll do this for 11 1/2 months then go work somewhere else. The good thing is it gives me an excuse to bail for a while after a year. I'm thinking about going to Argentina, and the timing would be right- late summer early fall there. I can't wait for another trip like this: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=153042&highlight=spain

    B757.......now that is a big 'ol turbine. :D

    What was that movie with Billy Bob Thornton..............Pushing Tin I think it was. The bit where they stood out on the runway and caught the wake vortex. :D

    Somehow I can picture you doing that. :haha:
