Florida am departure for 757-200 freighter I’m getting ready and launched out. What a job!
Where headed? Memphis?
Lovely! Enjoy your flyings 🛫
It must be fun to fly for an Airline (Especially FedEx)
Nice pictures! Love that sunrise! 🌅
The man in the first picture, is he the POC or F/O or just a mechanic? I usually thought that they wore stars and bars even though they were a cargo airline.
He is avionics setting up and checking out GPS.
I need to clarify that I’m Quality Control Inspector and I’m getting the aircraft ready for departure for flight crew.
Awesome! It must be a hard work as you have to inspect many things in the flight deck. Wish you luck and enjoy your friday! 😊
Ahh, it looked like he was filing the flight plan in the FMC.
Actually, your spot on. He was doing that, good observation.
Nice! Hope you enjoyed flight!
I love this. We need more of these types of detailed personal threads. You are lucky to get to work so close to jets.
I agree, but more detail is required!
Your job sounds fascinating, maybe share a bit of background, what your job involves or a couple of stories.
Excited to hear more!
Today I’m at work and the aircraft I’m assigned to just completed a heavy maintenance check and the crew is on board doing ground checks then they go up for 2 hours for test flight.
That is one beautiful aircraft!
Today is test flight day, where the test crew will perform a thorough ground check of all systems and later in the afternoon will go up for a 2 hour flight test. Any findings on the check will be addressed and work during and after debrief. Normally the aircraft will be scheduled for revenue the next day with a replacement aircraft ready for it’s maintenance check.

That is beautiful. How old is that jet? It’s is either very new or you are very good at your job. Or both ;)
These pictures are magnificent. You’re so lucky to work around aircraft, especially as they’re your passion.
