It’s been nearly two months and I really enjoy my job.
So far, I can now drive the little Aviation Gas (AvGas) Low Lead (LL) trucks and fuel any General Aviation airplanes and can man the ramp when LL requests come in. It’s a fun little truck to drive.
I’ll soon have to start driving the Jet A trucks. They’re a bit bigger than what I’m used to, but I have to start driving them sooner or later. I can fuel Jet A, but I can’t drive the trucks just yet.
Yesterday, September 27, we saw Atlas Air send us two Boeing 767-300’s from two mystery locations in the US and were headed somewhere to Europe.
I was very fortunate to be tasked on working the Lavatory truck. Now I don’t mind doing Lavatory service, but this one was kinda not good in a sense of let’s say the plane had a broken part in the Service Panel PM me if you’re curious, I’ll tell you all about it :).
Anyhow, it was super cool to see the 767’s side by side. Here are some pictures from work.

This Atlas 767-300 had Winglets, and this was the 767 I did the Lavatory service on.
This Atlas 767 had stairs attached, as the only jetway was in use
