    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    The Mission Support Group Commander? ~Bendy
  2. Apparently. Made him mad too I guess. I don't have a twitter otherwise I would (probably not, definitely not). It was a joke; I don't apologize for jokes. Bendy

    AFPAK Hands- Opportunity Beckons

    LOL Success needs to be redefined. Let's all agree and make it clear to anyone joining the United States Air Force that finishing your commitment, with a Delta follow on assignment is 100% success. If you choose success to be different, that is fvcking fantastic. If you define success as the former, thanks a million and move the fvck on. Talk about having too many generals, when everyone needs to work to be a general. This whole country needs some major fvcking house cleaning. The sooner, the better. Makes me want to get a twitter account, Bendy
  4. Dude, you're so old...you were old when I joined this board as a stupid student and I'm already old. It's like me talking about the model T when the kid is trying to tell me how cool his Tesla is. If you were subjecting yourself to this monster out cluster of a fvck right now, you'd shoot exactly as many people in the head as you had bullets...minus one. As for the PRF... if the strats had gone down the side in lieu of the worthless "stellar pilot" openers, there would be another entire line to talk about your career. Not saying it's right, or that there is more (as using the UCI shit on there at all would make me think there isn't. (No offense) There should be an entire thread on this forum with successful PRFs.

    That is highly unacceptable (although surprisingly common). Your safety officer is either lazy, incompetent, misguided, or all of them combined. Pulling that report/presentation is merely a few mouse clicks away... Any descent squadron commander would square that up in seconds... ~Bendy

    Staying until 1700 everyday could be an improvement, depending on which base you're at. To your point, I bet they believe warriors need an obstacle course. ...and that, my friend, is what we are/are making motherfvcking warriors. Now recite the Airman's Creed out loud, ~Bendy

    "Can't Understand Not Taxi" does not even make any sense. If you have to try that hard to insult someone, you probably shouldn't (yet). ~Bendy

    T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Hahaha...good to know; I had not heard about that...and I fly the damned things. Although I've been on a lot of leave, it's September after all. The oxygen system's effectiveness is subject to humidity at this point. Sliders, concentration variation, physiological weakness...geesh. Problem solved. ~Bendy

    Combine the T-6's instrument training with the navigation training to cut down on timeline will only add to this issue that already exists. Not a knock on the T-1 bubba/ettes training them, but it's always been a weak spot. I've sat on the ramp at Bagram talking to a majority of the squadron about how we're going to get ourselves out of here with this weather, when it is squarely primary pilot training level material, minus some climb gradient chart specifics. Teaching never stops. Venting is okay. Here should be okay. Maybe during the first or second vodka and tonic though. I know how this place rolls. You all are doobers. Every...last...one of ya's. It's about to get WAY worse Linda. Take care of them the best you can...T-1 IP's...time to up your game. ~Bendy

    T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Maybe having Lt Bagodonuts hobble together the first hack a the solution is a good idea. From there, the staff can be put in motion to serve rather than stall. We know it doesn't work (well) the other way. Until we reach a solution we'd like to implement (which should be the same across the bases), I reserve judgement. Maybe UPT Next also leading the implementation initiative of they're brain child would be appropriate up front...everyone reinventing the wheel certainly is not. The T-6 syllabus changes will reveal themselves for what they are over the next 6 months as students move on to the next phase and demonstrate their capabilities...until then, I reserve judgement. As for OBOGS, it seems the safety channel has gone quiet. It clamped down due to leaks not long ago, but I haven't seen even the scrubbed version of communication since the "we figure it out" briefing. I have seen the public articles saying as much. If UPE's aren't happening, then I guessed it's solved. Umm...reserve judge, yet again, I guess. In the interest of specifically useful: UPT Next needs to branch off of "innovation" and address implementation now that we've bit. If that slows innovation, that HAS TO BE okay. If it's not, just stop f'ing up our shit; in fact just stop. ~Bendy
