Charles's Story

Life My Pets: One cat. My Job: retired .... Retired .... RETIRED!! My hobbies: There are so many, none of which I am really active in on a continuing basis. Trains - old Lionel and full size railfanning Cars - I have a 1967 Dodge Charger retirement project in my driveway that I need to get started on. Photography - been away from that for awhile but hope to get back some soon. Classic (OK - old) Anything - planes, cars, trains, tractors, boats; belong to several museums here in San Diego. Cowboy Action Shooting - don't compete, but like to go to local events and dress the part. Workplace Was a 'rocket scientist' at Rocketdyne Div of North American Aviation (later Rockwell International) from 1962-1970 working mostly manned...Expand for more
spacecraft projects. Went to the B-1 division of Rockwell where I was the fuel system development engineer. When first go 'round of the B-1 was cancelled in 1977, went to Convair Div of General Dynamics as a 'rocket scientist' again. Moved into software in 1979 and have been there ever since. That part of the company has changed hands several times (now part of BAE Systems), but I've stayed in the same area of aircraft mission planning software. As of 31 January 2007 I retired. I am in total agreement with the most common comment of those who went before me, "Damn, I wish I'd done this sooner." I suspect that I will eventually be in agreement with the second most common comment, "I'm so busy I don't know how I ever found time to go to work."
