A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Aviation Mechanic Collection - A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Collection - Aviation Mechanics are specialists in preventive maint-enance because a power or control failure can lead to a major catastrophe. Many of the early flyers were both pilots and mechanics, and the Wright brothers also inventors pushing the envelope. Today's aviation mechanics service private aircraft, commercial airliners, and military aircraft of endless complexity. It is intriguing that Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan worked at Ryan Aviation where Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis was built. Corrigan "assembled the aircraft's wing and installed the gas tanks and instrument panel". He worked at Ryan after earning a pilot's license, and in doing so, learned everything he could from the field's aircraft mechanics. The story is that he was inspired by Lindbergh to make his own transatlantic flight. He modified his OX5 Robin but his applications were turned down by officials. He then "mistakenly" flew to Ireland instead of California because of "misreading" his compass. Actually he was an accomplished mechanic and pilot. The importance of mechanics is such that when Lindberg landed near Paris, the first thing he said was, "Are there any mechanics here?" Their jobs are a vitally important segment of the aviation industry. Aviation Mechanics!
