    Viper (F-16) Q&A

    Luke is too big to have a single OSS (it would be a huge squadron). So the OSS does airfield, weather, flight records, etc. and the TRS does the academic stuff. In general the TRS employs IPs that are attached to a B-course squadron (just like an OSS would employ a pilot attached to a squadron in a regular fighter wing) As far as being a cool squadron to be a part of ... you'd still rather be a regular line IP and just fly and deal with squadron stuff.

    24hr lodging "rule"

    There is a LOT of usefull info in the JFTR for TDY and PCS. It is worth reading for familiarity. Just a few examples: You only have to check for Non-A once, one Non-A letter is good for the entire TDY, no matter what billeting says. 24 hour rule. Your boat is HHG, you get paid for the weight of it through a DITY. Your boat is HHG, you get paid for non-temp storage.

    24hr lodging "rule"

    Read the JFTR ... It's painful at first, but worth it when some shoe tries to pull a fast one. U1045 is a good section to have printed out for the lodging office, since they seem to screw it up the most. The answer to your question is black-and-white in U1045.B.4 ... quarters are not-available.

    Top 10 Places to Have a Beer

    The one in Peniscola has an expansive wine list and a cool wine "cellar" you can get a table in. I don't the Destin model has a similar setup.

    Sounds like we're getting a gaggle together! ... I'll spring for ammo if anyone wants to tag along. Especially wives .... (what do they consider "rapid fire" ?)

    Thanks! ... I'm at Randolph, but I have wheels, perdiem, and plenty of free-time. I'm not looking to buy, but I do have to find some way to kill all that time.

    Unrelated --- but can anyone recommend a good gun shop around san antonio for browsing ... or a range with rentals? I'm TDY here and bored silly.

    False ... you also could not be gone that much and run an ops group or wing. / I was in the 1AS 1997-1998 // Random, I know

    Ever bust a checkride?

    Hey ... they opened up the thread to non-checkrides .... just adding a data point. I hooked for pulling through on a 70degree nose-low recovery in tweets .... (rather than rolling wings level, then pulling).

    Ever bust a checkride?

    I hooked one ride, ever. Tweets in 1998. Not a checkride.

Can someone please find this douchenozzle's email or mailing address! I think Chick Edwards needs to understand the errors of his ways ... and the internet geniuses around here need a project.

    Ridiculously good aviation art!

    I still say AMRAMM (a or b with big fins). The may appear bigger from the front, but I think that's perspective. The "wave guide" only goes up to just in front of the front fins ... like an AMRAAM. An AIM-7 waveguide goes damn near to the seeker. Look closely at the art, there is a stripe in front of the "waveguide" ... but that ain't an AIM-7. AMRAAM: AIM-7:

    Ridiculously good aviation art!

    Think so ..?? I think the perspective just makes it look wider. Can we get a ruling?

    Goin to the centrifuge (Holloman)

    I thought ze Germans had split from Hollow-man!? Last I was there (diggety-aught-5 ... with an onion on my belt, which was the fashion at the time) they were packing up.

    Goin to the centrifuge (Holloman)

    If the Fuge isn't going to crush your world ... then volunteer to go first. Get it done and overwith and then split. Drive back to El Paso, get a hotel there near the airport. Cab it into Juarez and enjoy a lovely evening of cultural enlightenment. Just don't try to walk out of Juarez ... it's a bad idea ... trust me.
