  1. ANG: Be Careful What You Ask For

  2. ANG: Be Careful What You Ask For

    Tanker guys have been going to Guam for years under the Pacific TSP (voluntary under 12301(D)) and all my orders have been submitted and approved through VPC-GR for reduced retirement credit. Granted, it hasn't been this new mob authority (12304?) but it should still count.
  3. Bentleys for Bombing

    Weekly WAR Report... Weekly "weekly activity report" report
  4. Bentleys for Bombing

    Oh I was there. But I'm a Guard guy. My orders said it wasn't a war...and big Air Force knows therefore it wasn't a war. I guess I don't post enough for my sarcasm to get picked up anymore.
  5. Bentleys for Bombing

    I'll give you the first two...but Libya wasn't actually a war so there was no way you could have actually bombed them.
  6. Classic thread - Good puke stories

    I don't know how Fred survived.
  7. Flying videos

    I'm pretty sure that's a graduation video, so the whole "complete UPT" argument is out the window. Those are their assignments. Yes, they still need to complete IFF and the TX course, but cut them a little slack. For the record...I also think dubstep sucks and I've got almost 20 yrs on the kids in the video. Maybe it's generational...
  8. I was a prior nav SRO. I made sure that, except for my wings on my name tag, I was the same as all my classmates. Same boots, same patches, no leather jacket. UPT is not a place to highlight yourself that're just inviting some pissed off FAIP to take you down a peg. Play the AETC game, lead the team as best you can with your knowledge and experience, leverage everyone's strengths and don't be a dumb ass. It'll all work out. (for the record, the FAIPs in my flight were all good dudes...but there's always the 10% out there in every group)
  9. Tops in Blue (TIB) - WTF?

    I don't even know where to begin.
  10. He's destined for the "he who shall not be named" moniker alongside all those whose names shall not be named.
  11. Whoops-747 Dreamlifter lands at Jabara KS

    The next 5 min was mind numbingly painful. Pull out your goddamn smartphone that you probably left on for the whole flight. Figure out where you are since you have zero SA. Look at your FMS. Write down the coordinates. Look up the identifier for Jabara on AirNav. Compare the coordinates. Do they match? Do I have to think of all this myself? Finally, for the love of all things holy, just shut your pie hole!
  12. Say Goodbye to Manas in 2014

    There is no rush to get stuff home + tankers cost $ + ER configured C-17s + air is not the only way to get stuff home = stopover in Romania. That's my guess.

    Two. Maybe a small tanker det but I think that's a big maybe.
  14. Say Goodbye to Manas in 2014

    CENTCOM AOR = 3 beers, GO-1, PT Gear, etc. EUCOM AOR = ? From Allied Force to Unified Protector...I've never experienced a booze restriction when deployed to a EUCOM operation. I never did Northern Watch, but I have heard the squadron bar stories. Now for the shocking part...we managed to get the mission done. Oh yeah, and this.
  15. Budget Sequestration and Military Cuts

    I'm sure he did. The B-1 was all he could talk about with the tanker crews...And he was a tanker guy! I've got nothing for respect for all the crews out there, but if we heard another B-1 story from him I think we would need another round of resiliency training. Yeah, got it sir, the B-1 is awesome <roll eyes>
