It's good to have you back, AJ2.

I've seen a lot that has brought back many memories. Starting with your first postings, I've recognized many persons including two bosses and my plane captain. And of course, all the top "wheels".

I worked in the Plant 2 bowling alley in the '60s, except that by then it was the hypersonic shock tunnel and the plasma lab.

Grumman was a hell of a company to work at -- the ultimate employee-focused outfit. It was non-union and stayed that way despite repeated attempts to organize it. I adopted many of their personnel practices at companies I later managed, including the Christmas turkey giveaway.

Keep 'em coming!!!

The more Wildcat production line photos, the better. I find them very interesting for our projects.

Great pictures! Thanks for posting. In picture 2853, did the Hellcat have a life raft compartment on the top of the fuselage? Hugh

I have joined this group to say that these photos ALL are TOTALLY INCREDIBLE!!! Republic and Grumman are two of my favorite aircraft manufacturers, and these photos tell more than a billion words!

ArmyJunk2; thank you very, very much for sharing your friend's massive work with this group! I know aviation historians normally would spend many years to try to get even just a few of these fantastic photos... And now you just share them with us! Somebody should make statues of you and your friend...!

I look very much forward to see more Republic Aviation Corp. photos! Maybe there even is more Republic Seabee photos!? The Republic Seabee amphibian is my favorite aircraft... :oops:

Thanks, again!

Foto 2853 shows a Wildcat, not a Hellcat. Don't know what that compartment was for and cannot find any reference to it in my documentation.
