GLASGOW, MONT. “It has its challenges, but just about everything we need we can find in Glasgow.” – Darcel Wesen, Glasgow airfield and site manager, Montana Aviation Research Co. Montana’s Fish and Game Department, she said. They sometimes took her flying, though she is not a pilot. Now she gets to be part of the testing of Boeing jetliners at Glasgow. “That’s the fun part, when the planes come in,” she said. Even though this northeast corner of Montana is remote, Wesen has no complaints. “If you like the outdoors, you will love living in this part of Montana,” she said. Krueger, the Boeing employee in Great Falls, can’t imagine living anyplace else. He fell in love with Montana years ago, when he was 18 years old. He was driving from his home in San Jose, Calif., to his first Air Force duty assignment, and the trip took him through Montana. “It was one of those picture-perfect Montana days—mountains with snowcaps and green meadows at sunrise,” Krueger recalled. “This was the place I knew I had to be.” n james.a.wallace4@boeing.com For more on Boeing’s flight testing in Glasgow, see Page 20 in the October issue of Frontiers.
