Impressive Birds

By Wesley Peacock

May 2016

I am relatively new to the aviation world and I got my start on none other than the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey. I worked in primaries at Bell's Amarillo Assembly Center. My two and a half years working on the unique aircraft was good to me. Everything from seeing the aircraft come together in one building to seeing the Air Force or the Marines flying them out and doing flybys to show off their new aircraft.

It gave me a great sense of pride to work on those impressive birds. Once in a while I found myself sitting outside on break just watching them doing their test procedures on newly finished Ospreys. I miss working on them. Maybe I will find my way back.
