In both his military and civilian careers, Glen Fike of Beavercreek has spent much time working with aircraft. “I retired as a colonel at Wright-Patterson AFB, having worked on the F-16 and F-22 programs,” he said. After retiring, Fike stayed in the Dayton area. “I work for BAE Systems now. We do F-16 cockpit upgrades. I work with airplanes all day long.” Outside of work, Fike’s interest in aviation centers on building and flying replica WWI aircraft.
