I was fortunate to work on both of these incredible planes. I worked on the first McDonnell Douglas KC-10 Tanker when it began production in 1980 at Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, California. The KC-10 is the military version and reconfiguration of the three engine DC-10.

I worked on the first C-17 in 1990 and 1991 as a first line production manager. The last 16 years I have worked on the C-17 as a aircraft mechanic. I completed my job on the final C-17, ship # 279, in October of this year.
