Geoffrey Page, Mechanical Engineer, KBRwyle, Midwest City, Oklahoma
How long have you been in the aerospace business? I have just finished my first year in the aerospace industry.
How did you become interested in aircraft? I became interested in aircraft when I was about 12 years old watching the space shuttle fly its missions on TV.
What is your favorite aircraft and why? The A-10 Warthog, because it can take a tremendous amount of damage and still make a normal landing. This robustness is a testament to the engineering solutions put into this aircraft.
