During the past 32 years Etta Goeser has punched more than 50 million dimples in the 3,806 T-38/F-5 series of supersonic planes produced by Northrop. She has dimpled every one of the earlier 1,189 T-38 Talon trainers and every one of the 2,617 F-5 Tiger II fighters. "When I started out dimpling the T-38s I had dimples. Now my dimples have turned into wrinkles," laughed Goeser, who will retire on her 65th birthday March 31. She has been a Northrop employee since Sept. 20, 1950.
