          That is probably the foreman looking for the machinist that is supposed to be running that lathe. In a shop that big there are lots of places to hide.

            I had a nap once inside the wing tank on a C-130 Hercules (fuel bladder removed).

                  You mentioned having a fuel bladder removed, I was just curious what was being done to the C-130? :>

                    About the most difficult job possible, replacing the wing spars. It is a high wing military aircraft so to protect systems from ground fire all are run through the top of the aircraft, meaning through the wing. All hydraulics, wiring and anything else had to be broken and respliced after the repair. Yuck.

                      Having a fuel bladder removed does sound painful, is that like a gall bladder?

                        it looks to me like the planer is so close to the beam that the tool can't be raised to full height.

                            It just dawned on me that if I had that very shop the first thing I would have to do is outside work,so that way I would be able to afford pieces of metal big enough to fit my machines

                              This is a picture of the Main Machine Shop at Newport News Shipyard. The building is still the same but the equipment has changed.
