  1. WTF?? That is a couple minutes of my life I'll never get back....
  2. The life support guys (whom I liked) asked me to please get permission as they were letting me fly with it and maintaining it.
  3. I went to ACC years ago when I asked if I could fly with my custom gloss black helmet in the F-16 (from F-117 days) and was told no (by the E-9 who was responsible for the reg) because it could present an IR signature to the enemy......I am not making this up.
  4. This might help - assuming you already have a PPL. Use this link and you can get some info to add an instrument rating to your certificate. I believe you will need a class 3 physical on your own dime - I always had to go a civilian flight doctor. I had heard of, but never saw, a USAF flight surgeon who could sign off a class 3 and the FAA at the time would not take the annual physical as a qualifier. See previous replies so maybe its different now. Your USAF landings count for the 90 day currency as do your USAF instrument requirements for instrument currencies. And find an FBO with decent planes with on line scheduling. The FBO might require a checkout and a biannual rather than accepting USAF FM-8 checks. https://www.transportation.gov/careers/veterans/pilots And bring money. Lots of it. Even more if you buy a plane. YMMV.
  5. What is this? Nothing about pulling out of Syria? A slow day on BO forums....

  9. Took a little skill to add min AB while on the boom rather than dropping off selecting min AB then getting back on the boom (F-4G w/ 3 tanks, 2 harms, 2 AIM-7Es, ECM pod, full fuel = about 63k lbs)

  11. And so it begins... http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2017/10/daniel-zimmerman/diane-feinstein-introduces-bill-to-ban-bump-fire-stocks/ "Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a longtime advocate of stricter gun control measures, introduced a bill Wednesday that would ban the sale and possession of bump-stock equipment and other devices that essentially turn a semiautomatic weapon into an automatic one."
