A feel good story. He must of had butterflies seeing the art work and his name on the plane. That's a hint to Gemini. Totally worthy of a model. Thank you for pointing this story out T7_4ever.

I forgot to mention,AA has roughly 113,000 employees. This gentleman must be seniority position #1? Lets go Gemini,you have made many American and American Eagle models. This special airplane is begging to be done.

A picture of the aircraft with the dedication would be nice or at least the reg. But then again it's the media...

Good story and a trurly amazing mechanic but who ever wrote it needs to add more relevant details.

Gentlemen, I appreciate all the feedback and comments above. Kudos to KLM4me for providing a photo of the artwork on the AA T7. I saw the Boeing 777 reference in the story and what AA was going to do to one of their birds for this much valued employee. I definitely had to share it with you folks ASAP! Cheers! T7
