A Friend gets published

(U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. John E. Lasky)

This is a pal of mine, Staff Sgt. Matthew Gross of West Lake, La., currently exiled to Spangdahlem AFB in Germany with the 52nd Component Maintenance Sqn. He's one of those highly skilled guys who keep the hollywood top gun types in the air. Matt's picture made the Airforce website this week, which is pretty cool considering how much attention is being given operations in the middle east.
Matt was pleased to make the website, but he told me yesterday that he'd wished they'd used one of the pictures they took of him working on one of those F-16 General Electric F110 engines behind him there.

No problem buddy. I checked around and found some photos that prove that not only is Matt able to dissasemble, reassemble and swap those big engines, but he's been seen working on a huge range of equipment both simpler and more complex than the one above.

Yup. Dat's an Incom T-65 Xwing back dere. Shit Hot Cajun.

Wow. Working on a dilithium-controlled matter-antimatter reaction Warp drive system. Matt, I never suspected.

Hmmm. Is that a B-25 in the background?
Take care buddy.
