In 1979 I moved to Douglas Arizona to attend Cochise College and get my FAA aircraft mechanics license. Ended up getting my EMT (emergency medical tech) rating as well as restoring a 1946 Aeronca Chief at the same time. Douglas is right on the border with Mexico and not a lot to do down there, so most of us worked hard.
Here is one of my projects while at the school. Its in good company, sitting next to the QU-22B Vietnam spy plane on the left and the old Convair 240 that hauled the orginal Friendship 7 astronauts around in the 1960's.
As well, my Sister and her husband owned the Owl Drug Store here, so it was nice to be close to family as the same time.
