    I'm going on a tour of Lockheed Martin in Fort Worth this Saturday with the ASME chapter at my school. I'm excited. Should be pretty interesting.

    Discuss.

    Depends on your job. My dad has worked there for 28 years now, and he could spend all day talking about the ups and downs.

    Yea, I'm stoked to see the production processes. I would love to go into aerospace once I get out of school.

    We're caravaning, leaving here at 2:15 tomorrow. Then leaving the hotel at 8:30 to go on the tour, and I think we're heading back to Lubbock right after that on Saturday. PM me your info, and if there is nothing going on Friday night, I'll hit you up.

    Sad, Calesta didn't respond. I know he lives on the FW side. Don't know which LM facility he works in though.

    Well there are only two lockheed martin facilities in Fort Worth, and I know he lives just about 15 minutes from me. I'd assume its the plant, but it might be the 500 corporate building.

    Sorry guys, been pretty busy with the kid on the way (ultrasound today) and getting my Hardbody ready for the sister-in-law to buy.

    I work in the Missiles and Fire Control office in Grand Prairie, so across town from the Aero plant- but I do run over to Ft Worth every now and then. I'm the UT Austin team lead for corporate recruiting, so I helped set up the UT externship that took place in the beginning of January- which is basically what you're doing tomorrow.

    BUT I'm south of Austin right now... otherwise I'd think about heading up there. ;)

    What school?

    I'll be calling you when I get bored with my job. Missiles sound more fun than grocery getters.

    Sweet. :thumbsup: Now hurry up and graduate, then come work for us. ;)

    Most definitely. Let me get off my lazy ass and finish these crazy projects first though... then you can leave Honda and come work for us. :)
