  2. If only there was a DOD inspection Agency that could verify the work being accomplished. And was done correctly. DCMA When I worked for Boeing on the 757 line. All of the major airlines had representatives in the hangar. Prior to closing and sealing up areas. We had to have them inspect and sign off on the area being closed. Have the DOD inspectors onboard. And charge Boeing for the work. Until they get their act together.
  3. Just retired and finally escaped from Edwards. Moved to Fort Walton Beach and started a job with Lockheed. Looking to pick up a small condo in Destin.

  5. Speaking of light aircraft. When did the Air Force pick up some Bell 412 Helicopters? I'm about to retire and on the Sierra Nevada web page they are looking for Pilots and Mechanics for Hurlburt Field. https://snc.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/SNC_External_Career_Site/job/Mary-Esther-FL/Pilot-Rotor-Wing--Bell-412----Clearance-Required_R0006174

  9. You mean like the Wing and Group commanders having nearly 0 to do with some misplaced nukes at a Ammunitions Squadron? Colonel Emig, the commander of the 5th Bomb Wing, Colonel Lundell, the commander of the 5th Maintenance Group at Minot, and Colonel Westhauser, the commander of Barksdale's 2d Operations Group were relieved of their commands or positions and reassigned.
