We also provide cereal bars, protein bars, tuna or chicken ...

Anyways, I work on the flight line with all of the cargo jets and commercial aircraft. I was out at a DoD (Dept of Defense)-contracted commercial B-747 the other day and I got bored and decided to mess around in the snow. I've included some pictures (that I'm technically ...
