As a backshop avionics technician I feel like the weird black sheep of the field. Flightlight technicians outnumber backshop technicians by more than 10 to 1, so people often forget we exist.
Flightline Technician: So, what airframe do you work on?
Me: Did you just assume my AFSC?!?! *Triggered*
Not that I want to be flightline, that job frickin' sucks. I lucked out getting put in the backshop. All we do is sit around all day watching movies and playing video games in our climate-controlled, windowless room with a little bit of actual work thrown in every now and then to mix it up, all while the flightliners pull 12 hour shifts out in the weather all day.
