Personal photograph used with permission – click to enlarge

This undated photograph was taken about 50 years ago. It shows David Leong in the cockpit of a Convair F-102A Delta Dagger. Dave and other engine shop airmen were doing a night engine run at the trim pad.

Back then, selected trained mechanics could taxi aircraft around the flightline during maintenance procedures.

Special thanks to John “JC” Chun for sharing this photograph.
