As I’ve already written about, on Tuesday an American Airlines mechanic celebrated his 75th anniversary working for the airline. The 91 year old has been working with American since he was 16, and American put on a big celebration for his 75th anniversary, as they should.
When I first wrote about the story I shared some of the festivities that they had planned for him (he set a Guinness World Record, American’s CEO was there to congratulate him, they commemorated a plane to him, and they took him on a flight around New York with “his” 777).
American has just uploaded an awesome four minute video about the Tuesday festivities, which are so cool to see, if you’re interested:
I know people have different perspectives on the guy working for so long. Personally I think it’s awesome, and have the utmost respect for this guy’s passion and skill. Based on his speech, he still seems incredibly sharp. Seeing this video put a huge smile on my face.
Once again, huge congrats to Al!
