    I'm a flight mech (give direction commands and operate the hoist). And when I'm not flying I take care of the electrical and avionics. I still end up working on engines/hydraulics/rotors etc. because I like to get my hands dirty and we're short handed. [​IMG]

    Yet another Coastie here... but not in Aviation like many of the others above. I'm a GM (Gunner's Mate.) Basically I deal with guns, ammo, and pyro. At my current unit I'm also an instructor, and teach M240B, M2HB, and Mk19. 14+ years.

    I've worked on the avionics on the Harrier jet for 15+ years now. Here's a picture I took a while back on a deployment.

    I worked on the EA-6B "Prowler". She may be ugly, but I loved working on them! After I finish up this tour teaching A-school I'm headed back to the fleet to work on the EA-18G "Growler".

    question for you guys, im going to be getting my A&P license next year and really want to work on jets, ive heard the military does contracts for civilians but how often do you see it?
    or do you have to join to work on them?
