At Work - McDonnell Douglas and Boeing

The following photos are of aircraft I have worked on over the years at Boeing Aircraft Co. in Long Beach. It was McDonnell Douglas when I hired in, and I make this distinction on the photos of the aircrafts. The last two photos, the A-10 and the F-15 were worked at Sargent Fletcher Co. in El Monte, California 1978 prior to coming to McDonnell Douglas.

This photo was taken in mid 1979 on the DC-10 line in Long Beach, California in Building 80, Department 513.

The photo below was taken in Long beach in 1988 on the MD-80 line in Building 13, Department 509.
