  1. Wing Re-Org Test

    Curious how this model would be applied to wings like the 55th and 23d which both have multiple ops groups including GSU ops groups.
  2. Su-25 Down in Syria

    In the HC-130, we fly with an M9 and M4 each, and (in some AOR’s) M203’s mounted on our loadmaster’s M4’s. We also fly with bunch of illumination flares in the cargo hold that can melt through the floor. Pyro on the plane doesn’t bother me as long as people are properly trained.
  3. Herk Down

    Go under blue four news, then scroll down to the Mishap Summary Briefs (MSB). It should be one of the top two
  4. More Uniform Changes!

    The Flight approved OCP jackets cost way more than even my fully loaded A2 from pops.
  5. F-22 Pilot's comments after flying the F-4

    Its not just the loads making fun of you... That said I am sure the KC-10/135 crews make fun of us for falling off the boom at 200KCAS while we are at or near max continuous and they have their flaps hanging. (HC-130J guy)
  6. Leadership at the 'Deid

    Shooter hat = OCP baseball cap
  7. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Show them the reg, then ask them to show you where it is written that you need to meet what they are saying.
  8. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    IMHO, it will depend on how it is worded. From a Rescue perspective, I would like to see something like: SQ/CC can waive crew rest for real world rescue missions. Basically constrain the authority to missions where a fast decision is needed and lives depend on the mission going right now.
  9. Promotion and PRF Information

    Well... if nothing else, I don't have to worry about my board next year if this actually happens like it seems it will. (I'm a 2010 guy so my board is 2018)
  10. How do you feel about your airframe and mission?

    What could possibly go wrong?
  11. Or PJ's they are highly trained, went through a tougher course than UPT, routinely fly on HH-60's and HC-130's, even wear aircrew wings.
  12. How do you feel about your airframe and mission?

    Thats not really a question anyone here can answer for you. You and your family need to sit down and have a serious discussion about the pros and cons and decide what is best for all of you based on the priorities you all agree to. Adding food for thought: the C-130 is going to give you the mission closest to AFSOC while being in AMC. Very busy, very involved in tactical ops, lots of base choices including overseas. The HC-130 (ACC rescue) has its share of issues but flying style is very similar to AFSOC and and doesn't go to Cannon (Moody and DM for ops, Nellis for WIC, DM for test, and Kirtland for FTU). The main problems with the HC-130 are less involved (people don't need to be rescued very often) and a little bit of an identity crisis regarding what capabilities need to be developed or abandoned.
  13. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    When did you go. I went about a year ago and there was a Capt in my flight who had just pinned on a few months prior and was going to be an instructor as soon as he finished.
  14. CSO drop nights

    Thank god we are getting my HC-130J CSO's we are painfully short manned. BTW, it is always CSO with the HC-J; nav went away with the HC-P
