    Columbus T-38 down

    CSAF cares about people I’m sure. The bureaucracy he manages doesn’t though.

    No bureaucracy cares about any person. People care about people on a personal level. Above that you’re just a number and it’s just business. It’s like this everywhere.
  3. What? Are you trying to kill yourself? 😂
  4. I imagine that many of the civilian employees in the base are retirees. Plus, you know, the commissary.
  5. What does "toxic work" environment even mean? He yelled at people?

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    When they come for the military pension we’ll have bigger problems I think.

    That’s actually a nice looking uniform. Is it worn with the blue flight cap or something else?

    Military appreciation has jumped the shark

    Well, in my slice of America, Lowe's and Ace are the two options, and I can tell you that the folk at Ace are just as clueless as the fine folks at Lowe's. And Ace doesn't give me 10% off.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    This is best understood in the context that the 75% promote rate overall really breaks down to DP = 99% promote and P = 50% promote. If you are a P then you have a little less than a 50/50 shot at promotion. In the P category it really is hard to understand why one gets passed over while another gets promoted. I was a “super P” at the Wing level and the Wing Exec who had a straight P was passed over. Our Wing had 4 eligible. Two DPs promoted. Two Ps were 50/50. We had similar records. Hard to distinguish between our records. It’s a mystery. Of course, he’s flying for Delta now so it’s debateable that he’s the one who lost out.

    They look the same but you don’t blouse the pants (the Army helo pilots do tho). They have zippers on the chest and pants instead of Velcro closures.

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    That’s good because they really kind of sucked when I flew “slick” 208s with them in 2012-2013. I can’t imagine shooting guns from that thing.

    I’d be cool with the OCP two-piece. It’s pretty comfortable and not as heavy as the bag. I don’t look forward to breaking in a new set of coyote tan boots tho.
