    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?

    I see civilian contractor mechanic's working for NAVAIR come in and do specialty jobs all the time. Some L3 guys worked side by side with active duty sailors, working eight hour shifts five days a week. Some of them do have military backgrounds others are just guys that have their A&P License and got jobs with the companies. Nothing like working in the line shack for $20-$30 dollars an hour!:D

    I'm pretty sure they have all been retired now and replaced with the CV-22 Osprey.

    I saw one at Creech AFB just a couple months ago in the air.
    Coincidentally, it was taking off next to an Osprey.

    I was surprised to find one of the aircraft I worked on at the USAF Museum. It was really cool to see it again but sort of sad also.
