  1. None in salary, but they get their bonus tax free (even if way more than CMSAF montly) if deployed

    Buffs - What can’t they do?

    Maybe we should make an HB-52 lol... after all we did use converted strategic bombers (SB-17 & SB-29) for rescue in the 50’s. In all seriousness that is awesome!

    Massif makes an OCP version of that exact uniform. We have a couple people testing them at our squadron. They love it.

    At least on the newer versions they have pencil pockets under the flap of the left sleeve pocket so they solved that issue.
  6. Was given this with word that the official announcement will be today:

    How do you feel about your airframe and mission?

    I’m and HC-J guy. Here is the basic rundown of my impressions and opinion as: HC pros: -More predictable deployment cycle -No Cannon -cool mission(when we get to do it) -platform itself and usage evolving in a very good way -good deal TDY’s HC cons -only have DM, Moody, Kirtland (schoolhouse) so no overseas locations -rarely get to execute the mission -don’t rack up hours as fast -ACC doesn’t really understand us -in current form our platform is not utilized as well as it could be, things are improving but that is no guarantee MC pros -lots of flying in lots of places -awesome bases(except cannon) including oconus -better utilized -awesome mission -MAJCOM that knows, understands, and cares about the MWS MC cons -Cannon -cannon -Cannon -erratic deployment schedule that can be very unpredictable -if you have a family you won’t see them much

    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.

    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.

    Herk Down

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

    More Uniform Changes!

    The Flight approved OCP jackets cost way more than even my fully loaded A2 from pops.

    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)

    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.
