Unlike with the old forums where users registered individually, the new forums use a common User Name and Password so anyone can post without needing to create an account. Please find the current User Name and Password on the RF Cafe homepage. Thanks for your participation.

In the days of yore (WWII), Boeing had the Wichita plant going. It seems that they had many of the services you mentioned.......and one more. Seems that a couple of "working girls" got jobs as aircraft workers. During lunch hour, they provided some of the male workers in the plant with a little service.......until the foreman got wind of it and dismissed them.
