Play / pause Heavy Engineering

Heavy Engineering

  • Dave Chambers
  • Interview by: Jon Summerfield


Coming from heavy engineering

where people would measure something with feet

and the peak of the cap

and say, well, that bracket there,

we were now into engineering that was precise.

Though, definite,

the inspection side of it was immense.

You couldn't really get away with anything

that wasn't absolutely perfect.

Everything was inspected every single stage and more

and more and more until you got the plane working.
