Rosie is still riveting

Elinor Otto is still building airplanes, 70 years later.

Just another day at the office for a 93-year-old “Rosie the Riveter” who stepped into a San Diego County factory in 1942 ā€” and is still working on the assembly line today.

Otto is something of a legend among her co-workers on the state’s last large military aircraft production line. And her legend is growing: She was recently honored when Long Beach opened Rosie the Riveter Park next to the site of the former Douglas Aircraft Co. plant, where women worked during World War II.
