On Friday I retired from Boeing after 42 years, 11 months and 16 days. Over the years I always liked to say: "you can do anything you want on your last day at work." I thought about what to do that would be remarkable, so I decided to run my GL1200 through the hangar. While I was at it why not record it with the GoPro. I think it came out pretty good.

Congratulations, you might feel lost for a while but soon you will be over it and wondering why you hadn't done this earlier

Great idea and well done. A little burnout along there somewhere would have been nice or a figure eight in and out of some landing gear.

Congratulation! Great career

Your windshield is so clear that it took me awhile to see it

You beat me. I retired from Boeing after only 41 years+ (not counting the months and days) in June 2019.
That was a real Go4Zero ride... ha!

WR, I finished in Experimental Flight Test. Over. The years i might have crossed paths with your brother.

This was not a OSHA safety violation. I rode on a vehicle transportation lane. It was blocked off because the test 777-9 was in it. Before I rode through it, I walked to make sure the was adequate clearance.

41+ years is a good run. Something to be proud of. Good for go for Go4Zero, there is nothing in the company safety manual that says you cannot ride a motorcycle through the hangar. I heard it caused quite a stir in the shop. One of the general superintendents was reported to have said now everybody will be doing stupid stuff on their last day :)

When I got sacked from Wall Mart, for telling my customers that,
Riding 3 was better than 2,
I showed them what I meant, in their car lot. ;)
