Bobby Tamplin was 26 years old in 1977, when he went to work as a parts fabricator on the F-16 fighter jet. At the time, he was told his job would last “maybe five years.” Forty years later, the 66-year-old recently stood on a windy, cold flight line at Lockheed Martin — just a few weeks before his retirement — to bid goodbye to the last F-16 to be built in Fort Worth.

Robin “Robbie” Atkins speaks with great pride about his role in the F-16 story. When he was hired in 1978, the first F-16 was on the flight line, the second one was on the fuel rack and the third was in final assembly. A painter and coater, he has worked alongside every single fighter built in Fort Worth. (Video by Max Faulkner/Star-Telegram)
