Old ASOs never die, they just get found by Aerial Archaeologist

Did you know that Aerial Archaeologist is an Airborne Sensor Operator? Even though their primary job is to study human history and prehistory through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains, they’re participating in the discipline of flying, operating remote-sensors and analyzing the collected data, i.e., ASO as a secondary profession.
