SGT Paul Gallaway
Paul joined the Air Force 1996 after working in the horse, cattle and transport industries and a copper refinery. Paul became a qualified Aircraft Life Support Fitter. He then worked on C 130 Hercules before moving onto the Boeing 707.
Paul had a very interesting outcome when he volunteered for a Search and Rescue mission to try and find survivors from a sailing boat off the north of Australia.
He says he enjoyed working on the B 707 with 33SQN because he visited every capital city in Australia as well as a trip to Japan.
2001 saw him working on the J model Hercules.
He joined the Combat Survival Training School in Jan 2006.
Paul became the Life Support section head for Hawk, Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft.
Paul became involved with the F35. It was definitely a new way of doing business.
He says that at 53 years of age he needs to think about life after the Air Force.
He sometimes wishes he had joined earlier.
