  1. Wingman of the year, must promote!
  2. Copy that it's a replacement in lieu of the current system, but the word "additional" in Rookie's post suggested to me that dudes would come out $6k ahead compared to the current status quo, rather than $2k like di1630 used in his math above. Also copy that we're splitting hairs on RUMINT that may never see the light of day or that Big Blue may change its mind again by tomorrow, so who knows?
  3. The original explanation from LookieRookie was that this was a $6k bump on top of what's currently offered rather than just a $2k boost. Not sure if that example included the current bonus or not, though.
  4. "According to the United States Air Force, an F-16C aircraft assigned to the 56th Fighter Wing at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona diverted and attempted to land at the Lake Havasu Airport around 10:30 a.m. Officials say the aircraft departed the prepared surface and the pilot ejected. The pilot is in good condition and expected to be OK." Link to Article

    Not a lawyer either, but what you're getting at are the limits of exemptions to the exclusionary rule. Probably depends on whether or not the cop was acting in good faith. Ref: US vs. Leon (1984) Yes. Ref: common sense. You lied to the cops, which is against the law. Special Counsel investigations take time. This one has been going on for less than a year. For comparison's sake, here's a chart from a December 2017 538 article: Where is this presumption of guilt coming from, in your eyes? Also, I don't see how anyone can realistically argue there's a lack of probable cause at this point. There may not be fire , but damn if there isn't a hell of a lot of smoke.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    I would think at least O-5s, maybe O-6s. Know a guy (pilot) who got picked up to be a MAJCOM/CC’s exec as an O-5. Edit: to clarify, said dude was a graduated Sq/CC who put on O-6 soon after.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Also, no more rank. Aren’t we all equals as Airpersons?

    T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    I can already picture someone half-heartedly chanting this at a CC call

    How much do these Dyess shenanigans have to do with this guy being in charge?

    Affirm. Just curious, mostly.

    Safety School (Albuquerque, AMIC)

    Thread revival: Any ideas on whether completion of a foreign military's FSO course would result in an S- prefix and associated safety stink?

    Raise Taxes, Fire up the Draft.

    Agree with all of the above, but what's the incentive for Joe Plummer to vote for this kind of proposal? It's in the best interest, perceived or actual, of 99% of this country to maintain the status quo.
