There are several ATSers I am curious about, namely those who talk as if they really know whats going on in Aircraft Projects section instead of guessing like so many other folks do.

Off_the_Street, Intelgurl, Waynos, Fred T, Engineer, there are others but this will do for now.
Is there anyone who knows the credentials of these people or are they willing to come forward and tell more about themselves or could someone do an interview or something?
At least one inquiring mind would like to know

I personally have extensive knowledge in aviation technology, but compared to them I am lacking...

They are just aviation buffs who read alot about and some even work in the industry like OtS and Engineer (who is now a retired ATS member, I scared him away sadly).

I'm sure OtS will more than gladly show his credentials

I believe Intelgurl works in the Aerospace Industry as well. I didn't know OtS worked in Aviation, heh learn something new everyday. Basically everyone you mentioned are people I and obvously GZ respect quite a great deal. Howd you scare engineer off GZ? He had some good posts

Engineer and I got in a major fight, he was flaming me and I was arguing with him, it got real ugly, I apologized and practically begged him to stay, but he wouldn't...

OtS works for Boeing I believe
Intelgirl for Ratheon right?

Yes I do respect all of them, I do get in arguments/debates with them occasionally, but that's only natural in this kinda business, national pride is at stake and all


I will try to find the forum where Engineer left...I might try to find his email some day and ask him to come back...I feel like an ass for what i have done...

And I've got 7 hours dual up my sleeve. I am by far the leading expert.

Intelgurl is cleary the tops in the field here at ATS. Hence her designation as FSME.

I for myslef am strictly an amatuer in the field. I do spend alot of time however, and Aviation and the industry is a passion/hobby of mine. Hence the AWST subscription, yearly treks to any and all airshows, my attempt to find the crash site in Nevada of 928, an A-12 (3 misses so far) etc. etc

Ok, what is this, out the spook week? What entitles any of us to 'data' on any of us? It is the cloak of anonymity that lets 'us' who work in 'aviation' post anything on here for all of you to enjoy. I want data, credentials, and everything I can get on you right now, nanobyte (bet you'll wish that was 'anonobyte'). If you want glasnost, give glasnost. Better yet, don't. We really don't want to know who you are, or who OTS, etc are because you might have something interesting to say someday. By the way, welcome to ATS and don't let me discourage you- my credentials read curmudgeon extraordinaire.

the A-12? Yes, it was piloted by a CIA contracted employee named Walter Ray, He ejected but was killed. A man by the name of Tom Mahood has found the crash site and offers a few cryptic clues. Google his name and his page has a six part chronicle of his search. After you have seen what he had to go through, you will understand why he wont just give me the GPS coordinates. Lets just say I have an indulgent wife
. His page has pictures of titanium pieces and a engine tage etc.

Gah, I thought it was an Anatov when I misread your post. This is much better.

I'll have a read, and pass my findings onto you since I can't go myself. If you find it because of some of my info you can send me a piece

THANKS, Fred.

Now I'm drawn right into it.

Welcome to my world, I got sucked in a few years back and it knaws at me. I have logges about 30 hours of time in the desert hunting for the bastard.

Well, any topics directed towards fighter aircraft, especially avionics, are what pique my interest...I like this site because it's interesting to see civilian perspective on what's going on in my world, plus, I hate ignorance and can't stand when others perpetuate falsities as facts.....it's funny because during the week(usually 12 hour mind-crunching days), I mostly dread the damn aircraft. I guess it's a love/hate relationship.....

I'm not sure what kind of "credentials" you're interested in. I don't make a secret about myself; you can do a google on Duncan Kunz (my true name) and get some pictures of me involved in Boeing activities.

You can , of course, e-mail me at home (duncankunz@cox.net) or at work (duncan.z.kunz@boeing.com) or call me at home (480-329-1359) or at work (480-891-2525) or (if you're really suspicious, you can call the Mesa Boeing switchboard at 480-891-3000 and ask to be connected to Duncan Kunz's office) or even look me up in the Maricopa County, Arizona East Valley telephone book.

But I am not an aerospace engineer per se, nor did I ever say I was one. I got an undergraduate degree in logistics engineering from ASU and am now a Proposal Manager, which is just fancy words for a 60-year-old nearing-retirement mid-level aerospace bureaucrat.

I also was an English major at the University of Maryland back in the sixties, and taught fifth grade at John H. Bayne Elementary School in Prince George's County, Maryland for a year in 1968.

I worked for eight years for IBM Federal Systems Division in Gaithersburg, Maryland, four years with Talley Defense Systems (rocket motors and gas generators) in Mesa, six years for Motorola Government Electronics Group (classified electronics subsystems) in Scottsdale, three years for Solavolt International, (PV engineering) in Phoenix, and finally 13 years combined with McDonnell Douglas before the merger, and Boeing since then

Finally, I'm attending the University of Phoenix where I am trying to get an MBA before I retire, so I can have the option of teaching at a junior college when I leave the death-business, which may not pay much, but is better than being a greeter at Wal-Mart.

What else do you want to know? I certainly am not an expert in arcane physics or trransformational mathematics, but then, no one else here is, either.

If you have any questions give me a call or an e-mail; I'm always glad to answer any questions I can; if I don't know the answer, I'll tell you so.

Now I realize a lot of you won't want to call or e-mail because you probably figure I'm a NWO weenie or a Masonic lizard or something. I have no problem with posting my name -- nor would I have any problem contacting you -- because I know that 95 percent of the conspiracy theories that everyone bruits around here are bogus, but that's another story.

By the way, the picture of the old guy to the left with the Kalashnikov design carbine is me; you can see a lot of my photographs (including ones of me and my bride Dawn) at my photo website: members7.clubphoto.com...

Ba-da-boom.

YES Off_The_Street!
Very impressive and humorously worded reply! Congrats

Man that must be boring, allthough well paid
Just what does a Logistics engineer do?

I am a much more private person than Off_the_Street... no phone numbers, email addies or other such information.

I am a client/operations field support specialist for Raytheon sensing, processing, and dissemination technologies - dealing primarily with software support of F2T2EA cycle methodologies for UCAV development.

Well, Ratz! There goes my plan to immortalize you!

"For a good time with client/operations field support for Raytheon sensing, processing, and dissemination technologies, call Intelgurl at xxx-xxx-xxxx".

On a more serious note, I certainly think that UCAVs are the wave of the future, and Raytheon is appearing to be a major player.

Loggies are people who analyze support needs for complex systems. For example, once you get an attack helicopter in place, what will it take to maintain it over its life (say, 20 years)? You have to consider spare parts, but you (if you're the customer) probably want your aircraft to maintain configuration compatibility; that is, if the American version gets a new whizzbang, you want that whizzbang as well, since the improvements are there and the non-recurring costs are less. But how often will a part on the airplane break and how many spares will you need?

What kind of training package works best for operators? For maintainers? is the repair facility a three-tier or two-tier? What language do they speak? Do you need us to develop a training package which takes your particular aircraft version into consideration, or shall we sell you our plain vanilla one, and then develop a "differences training" package?

In a way, it's kind of fun. But what I do now is to coordinate a team of folks who write big proposals for these kind of projects, so I spend most of my days developing schedules and charts on the computer, going to meetings, and talking to people on the phone. Typically, the Program Manager will beat me up, and then I'll go to an engineer or a procurement guy, and beat him up, remembering that everyone is working six or seven jobs at once and that the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Heh, I just checked your profile and discovered you some similarities to my brother.

You were born in 1944 which is the Chinese year of the Monkey, my brother was born in 1980 which is also the year of the Monkey.

You were born in Dec 22nd which is Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp, my brother was born in November 29th and he's a Sagittarius.

And I noticed that people born under that year are usually more skeptic/less paranoid than let's say somebody like me who was born in 1981.

YES I'm very interested in Astrology, my brother says it's bogus but he did notice that his astrology was usually dead on.

I'm ussually very free with giving away my details, i'm not paranoid enough, but I am a bit cautious at first, if anyone really want to know i'll let them know, otherwise i'll keep quiet, I have nothing to hide but sometimes i'm affraid I do know to much about certain things...yup, i'm paranoid...

I know you didnt call upon my name but im into aircrafts but not into much aircraft projects unless it fits my intrest of taste. Im more of the tracking and listening type i have no idea what you would call that.. i track planes from my local airport which is the westchester county airport by AirPortMonitor which is pretty accurate.

I also listen to flights via portable scanner and maybe some PAPD
maybe some coast guard in nyc if i can pick it up.. and maybe some helicopters in my area aswell i also track janet flights which believe it or not is really easy to do and fun to watch when you know the flight schedule which are easy to get off of google but thats mostly it you might see me pop in on a few topics but not that many because i like to stay out of stuff i dont know about
