Portrait of Xavier

Xavier was an aircraft fueling technician who worked at the Mojave air and Spaceport in Mojave, California, USA. He had worked there for 20 years. Although he worked and lived in Mojave , he was originally from Los Angeles, California.

Xavier’s job was to fuel aircraft of all sizes from Cessna and Pipers to 747’s and 777’s. He fueled aircraft with single prop engines and with after-burning turbofan engines. But most exciting, is that he got to fuel spacecrafts such as SpaceShip One and XCor suborbital vehicles.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
