June 2022 winner

Luis Santiago, Supplier Quality Engineer, JBT Aero Corp., Orlando, Florida
 

How long have you been in the aerospace business?

42 years.

How did you become interested in aircraft?

While attending Aviation High School in New York City.

What is your favorite aircraft and why?

The Vought F4U Corsair. My home room at Aviation HS was 214, hence the Black Sheep Squadron that flew Corsairs. Or the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, because as an 18-year-old, I got to work on a secret black project.
