Dear Ladies and Gentleman,
I would like to introduce myself a little bit and saying I'm happy to become a member of this Society.
My Name is Jürgen I'm born in the south of Germany 1961, so I'm 54 Years old. I worked 8 Years for the Germany Air Force, for the Aufklärungsgeschwader 51 Immelmann in Bremgarten, close to the Swiss and French Border. I worked the First 3 Years as a Mechanic and after 2 Years of Education I was promoted for the Crew Chief Position. With our Phantoms I visited several Places...Goose Bay, Beja-Portugal, Decimomannu-Sardinien, and Belgium and Turkey.
This was the best time in my life. I still love the Phantom. I worked on the RF-4E. I also received a Education doing Engine Run Ups with this Aircraft. I did over 1000 Engine Runs during my active Time. I still work in the Aviation, after my active Airforce Time I start with an additional Education over 12 Years and worked as an Inspector Class 1 on several American Airplanes. Learjets and Boeings and Dassault Aircrafts. Since 11 Years I have my own Company with four team Members. Unfortunately, here in Germany the Phantom are gone since 2 Years, no Smokes anymore to see. Also, many people in these days don’t like Military Jets...I still love them. I worked a couple of times together with Americans from the US Air Force during my Air Force Time, I had also a lot of good encounters during my time. Over the last 20 Years I was so often in the United States, taking some Deliveries and visiting some MX Courses. It was always a pleasure for me to stay in your country. I also spend 6 Month in Seattle following some Boeings when I was working for British Airways. It was a wonderful time. I really love your Country. I Love Amerika.
So, i wish all of you a wonderful Christmas Time a Happy New Year 2016 Peace and Health for you and your Family. And maybe somewhere, somehow, we maybe see us. Watching great Airplanes, and have a beer together.
Sunny Greetings from the south of Germany,
