So How Good of a Mechanic Are You?


If you’re a shade-tree mechanic like me, you know that most jobs can be accomplished with a decent set of tools, a breaker bar, a torque wrench and maybe a few bloody knuckles. But do you have what it takes to be a professional? Could you tear down a motor and put it back together? What about bigger jobs. If you had the installation manual and the right tools, could you assemble one of the most complex machines in the world? If you think so, take a quick look at what it takes to put together the F/A-18F Super Hornet. Job applications can be forwarded to the US Air Force.
