Oh I wish MJ - but sometimes you've got to face the cold facts and that is I am nowhere near the calibre or indeed type of Engineer that gets those sort of jobs.

I have watched loads of programs on JPL and it just looks exciting stuff with big toys and an environment to use your imagination.

I'm hoping to get a look at one of their places though as Mrs Satanics cousins sister in law works with them - so you never know MJ they might be so impressed by my in depth knowledge of Heavy Fuel Oil purification they just snap me up - aye right

I had one for 24+ years, first as valve expert and then Ship Repair Manager, I always walked off just as the vessel was sailing; or left with the pilot.

My dream job was to become a flightline engine fitter in the RAF. I passed all the entry exams etc only to have mother tell me that it was 'no job for a lady'. This was back in the 1980's. So I went into construction instead, looking after towercrane installation before moving onto driving artics for a living. I still have an interest of sorts in my old dream job, I have studied aircrashes for the last 30 years as I am very curious about mechanical things that don't work and why they stopped working. I also rebuilt engines in my cars too as a hobby, so although I never managed to get up to the armpits in an aircraft engine, I did tinker with car engines occasionally and I once helped restore a B25 Mitchell bomber....and I never did do a job more suitable to a 'lady' :o

I had one for too short a time. In a small boatyard in Lymington, outboard motors, and small inboards. Messing about in boats all day and getting paid for it.
What happened?
I got married!
She got homesick and dragged me back to Scotland.
We're still together after 38 years though!
