  1. Thankfully the pilot is fine. standby for a safety down day? “ A U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper assigned to the 49th Wing crashed during landing at Holloman AFB at approximately 1800 MDT today. The sole pilot on board successfully ejected and is currently being treated for minor injuries. Emergency responders are on scene; additional details will be released as they become available.”
  2. Meet the new bonus, it's like the old bonus of 25K, except it says FY21. I have no idea, but I have the pitchfork and torch market cornered.
  3. The students can find out now. When the flight commander submits OP4418 it’s supposed to have a fighter recommendation if they didn’t get a fighter assignment.
  4. Run to the ADC. Admit no guilt. Talk to none to no one else. write a rebuttal with the ADC.
  5. You won’t get full meal rate on the weekends. You are”able” to utilize the DFAC on the weekends.
  6. Because the Central School Selection Board (CSSB) just picks you up for school. Your DT (MAF/CAF/SOF) then vectors you to a specific school and that gets sent to the AFPC or A1 Bobs to sort out.
  7. So the implication is that they didn’t know the basics? Not that Lts can’t be interested in more advanced tactics. I just want to make sure I understand your intent.
  8. Clarification for Bashi: A lot of the 560th is populated with IPs who never taught T-38s in UPT. They were T-6 UPT/UCT IPs and then went to be a T-38 PIT IP later.
  9. T-38 students that drop heavies do just fine in FTUs without ever having learned “how to fly as a crew.” Heavy FTUs have less time in the jet now because sims can accurately replicate flight.
  10. Those were given away to other USG agencies from what I saw
  11. More spam! buy some 737 Maxes and name them the T-43B
  12. It’s one of the justifications being used to not replace it now. I don’t see the USAF with the appetite for a T-Z trainer. especially, when ACC is trying to lease T-50s through Hillwood for their ReForge experiment. And Hillwood/Alliance wants UPT at AFW.
  13. Funnily enough, AMF (Air Mobility Fundamentals) tracked studs for UPT 2.5 ( as of the latest draft) get more sorties after track focused on Crew Coord, mobility stuff. They also may never fly a T-1 but that’s another fight.
  14. The T-1 only was brought online to extend the life of the T-38. It had nothing to do with making a better MAF product
