Allan Hill, A now retired aero space engineer

Responsible for creating the means of measuring and recording the temperature of the underbelly heat panels of the now retired Space Shuttle Fleet.

Without Allan and the work that he owned the patents, designs and production equipment on -

The Space Program of Challenger and all - would not have been flying into space -

Let alone be able to return into the atmosphere.

Allan had that aspect of the technology tied to his close control - He owned it. He produced it as they needed the product - And the fleet of space ships were able to fly and return safely.

All in the home production factory of Allan Hill

This is the how and why - He was able to keep this vehicle in such good care - For all these many years.

He tells stories of the men behind the scenes that I would never imagine.

His company was listed in the category of -

A Manufacturer of

Industrial Instruments For Measurement,

Display, And Control Of Process Variables And Related Product / Industrial Measuring/Control Instr (Mfrs)

I never had any real idea that any tech in the iATN network would seriously want to buy this vehicle.

They might talk about it as they have ...

The real hope was that someone would tell that it exists for sale and it comes about that someone who will value it as the life long companion of Allan and Lila Hill makes it a true one of a kind treasure that the new owners will treasure also -

Long after Allan and Lila have passed this world.
