Airbus Main Gear

Me and the A340-600 main gear at the Messier-Dowty facility near Montreal. The machine tool used to rough the world's largest forging is a massive six spindle Droop and Rein duplicating mill. I programmed the 3 and 4 axis operations with CAMAX in my basement office.

My fondest memories of this job were the Friday afternoon hockey games. Mirabel was the only place I've played where one could order beers from the bar to the dressing room after the game.
