  1. Now we know how Fingers fixed the pilot shortage! Top Gun 2 = influx of wannabes...
  2. I hear ya on that. Sounds very familiar...
  3. Obviously his tax bracket was too high! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Correct. But there are commanders out there that [wrongly] think they have to put your vector in the push line.
  5. The sad thing is I have seen many commanders who don’t know this or don’t give a . I saw a “#2/xx FGOs” get a MAJCOM push because that was their vector (of which 85% get a MAJCOM vector).
  6. You know there are not many 365s left, right? They’ve been converted back to 6-monthers for the most part.
  7. I thought we all had to recertify our marriages a few years ago...
  8. I had two commanders who truly didn’t know that “1/xx officers” was a shit strat. I had one who didn’t know that “2/xx FGOs” as a new O-4 did not go with “MAJCOM next” on the push line. The system is completely and utterly ed. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. Pawnman: the black box of how promotion boards work sucks. It also sucks that even a FOIA of the board instructions won’t help much. Just remember...Big Blue May not value you but there are people in your community who do. Klepto: I doubt competitive categories will help. I think there is a study in the Navy showing that the “aviator” category promotes at a lower rate than the others. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Well we all (AMC) got a new FCIF on aircrew discipline and adherence to standards that mentions both low levels and stabilized approach criteria. So...move along. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. That is the Breitling symbol found on all their watches. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. It should have been a go around. That is a 197’ wide runway. Both trucks were over the grass and the left wingtip was nearly over the runway edge line. That means the aircraft was around 85’ right of center. In my airplane, more than 25’ off centerline is a U. The only way to get to that runway is a circle or visual circuit due to the close proximity of CDG. It was probably a poorly flown circle/visual pattern...but that doesn’t excuse the violation of everything AMC has been trying to teach for the last several years about landings/go arounds.

  13. There is not. They also removed the caveats for a 364 with less than 1 year left. Waiver for everything.
  14. Tell us more, champ! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. BWI Patriot Express is your best bet. Twice a week each way. Latest app is Facebook.
  16. We had a pilot in my squadron who passed out and fell. It took months of medical stuff and the Sq/CC fighting tooth and nail to return that pilot to flight status. Even then they had to always fly with an IP and we had to make specific comments/notes in their training folder. That training folder was nearly two inches thick several years later when they finally received the med ok to upgrade to AC. It was a longer blackout and a fall...but the bottom line is you will have to fight hard and have leadership backing you. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  17. Better (add to .htaccess): RewriteEngine OnRewriteCond %{HTTPS} offRewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301] Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  18. Until recently you were ineligible for a second bonus after taking one. (Yes, I know before 2001 there were 2nd bonuses to keep people in). Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  19. A bird that doesn’t fly. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  20. Probably nothing shady. My guess is they did a mil “cert” on it rather than rely on an STC. No STC...no type. Simple really. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  21. The “US Air Force” patch is not the generic patch. It is the HAF equivalent of a MAJCOM patch. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  22. Until you see the heritage video for the support guys. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  23. The inevitable spiral is beginning! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  24. What is up with the dude going to JB MyDickHurts with no airplane? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
