I've been thinking about this for awhile now, I thought it would be cool to share pics of your workplace/what you do for a living.

I own a business with a partner doing tile and hardwood flooring. Been at it for around 3 and a half years now and loving every minute of it! We do everything from custom showers to kitchen backsplashes to floors. We recently did the tile in one of the extreme home makeover houses in joplin after the tornado, that was a blast.

This backsplash we just did today. The other is a shower we recently did, and a partially finished floor in a basement remodel.

I'm a flight test engineer at Boeing. We do testing on different systems on aircraft destined for customers. We have some that are full-on test planes with different/no interiors that are outfitted with a bunch of test equipment.

Mostly, I do stuff I'm not allowed to take pictures of, but here is an official picture of the new paint job on one of our test 747-8 freighters:




Here is what it looks like inside one of the 787-9 test planes I worked on. Not sure how they got the pictures, as we aren't allowed to take them:

No, I'm not a pilot, just an engineer. I do get to fly on the planes though. There are a handful of different groups within the flight test organization and mine is one of the ones that has to be on every flight. It sounds cooler than it really is, and there is more paperwork than actual flight time, but it is still nice to get paid to fly around. We also get to see them do stuff with passenger planes that your never see a commercial plane do in regular service, touch and goes, rejected take-offs and landings, emergency stops, high speed turns etc.

I was able to ride in the observer seat of a 747 for a landing a couple weeks ago and that was pretty cool. One of the groups has someone on each flight that sits up there. I hope to eventually move into that group. I'm still new, so I have to earn my stripes before getting to do the really fun stuff.

That's awesome, I've heard that those huge planes can actually do more maneuvers than you would think! Especially when they're empty.

Well, I'm still managing sales at the local dealership, but the last time didn't have pictures included so. Yeah, I know it's the wrong time of year for scoots so forgive the hardware on the floor!:eek:
Hey b.miller, (I'm no John Travolta but I do know my way around the sky) if Boeing ever needs someone to assist in shaking down a new airliner, I'm always game!:eek::D

Greatest job in the world. I'm in a distressed New England city with Rt 95 running through it, a very high traffic section of commuter and cargo rail, a small local power plant and dozens of deteriorating mills, not to mention triple deckers stacked next to each other like sardines and a river... We're extremely busy and I'm challenged mentally and physically almost every day.
