Very rough pictures. I have better ones somewhere, but this will do. I've worked in a CNC (computer numerical control) machining position for about 22 yrs, round machines for about 30 yrs. The last two pictures are where I work now. Before the economy went south they did a 3 mil expansion to the cnc area. This outbuilding is now enclosed with the fabrication building. It's really quite something.

Here's the view from my office when the weather is bad....

On these two occasions I was happy to be VFR !!!!

In the right one the attitude indicator is frozen.. Odd coincidence they both occurred around 280!
