Loyalty to Spare

By Fernando Maggiori

As I took on my first job in 1995 with the 737-200, I did not realize the deep effect that aviation and Boeing would have throughout my life. Ever since that rainy day I visited the Renton, Wash., facility in 1996 as a participant of the Boeing Spare Parts Symposium that year, I have been a Boeing believer.

After 11 years with my home country airlines and several different aircraft manufacturers, I am still completely bent toward Boeing and have a share to prove it. I have worked with the B737-200, -700 and -800, while currently tending to a -300, and I would not have any other plane favorite. If it is not a Boeing I am not comfortable.
