June 2020 winner

Ron Hart, Engineering Drafting Manager, ALOFT AeroArchitects, Georgetown, Delaware
 

How long have you been in the aerospace business?

35 years.

How did you become interested in aircraft?

As a kid, my dad was in the U.S. Navy, and I remember watching the B-52 bombers launching from Guam as they went to Vietnam.

What is your favorite aircraft and why?

When I first joined the Air Force, the first aircraft I worked on was the F-4 Phantom. To me this aircraft was what a true fighter aircraft looked like. I remember looking up at a F-4 as it rumbled down the runway and lifted into the air. What a sight and what a feeling through your body from the afterburner.
