    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    They really are this stupid.

    I think you're seriously underestimating the magnitude of the staffing crisis at the regionals. "Plenty" is not an accurate term. I know of a guy who went to jail for manslaughter....drove his 2-seater Porsche with two women crowded in the passenger seat while drunk, and the drive ended in a fiery crash that killed one of them...and who was hired at the regionals (by more than one airline, actually). So...I am certain our disgraced IP he could find a regional that would hire him with a little looking.

    I'm sure there are a ton of regional airlines that'd hire him.

    Reno Air Races

    I was actually over on the east side of the course at Pylon 2, so I didn't see it (fortunately? unfortunately?). I heard the mayday on the race control freq, and watched the second jet do a battle damage check with the pace plane through my camera. The best part was talking to Marilyn Dash, who was doing the commentating on the NBC Sports and internet live feed, after the incident. She is known to be quite "colorful" with her language, and she told me, "I've never come so close to yelling 'OH SHIT!!' to an audience of untold thousands as when I saw that midair." I think that would have been epic, personally...but probably not good for the commentating career. Looked like you were having fun with the Patriots, tho. And, yes, of course I will hoist a brew with you at ICAS -- wouldn't miss it!

    Reno Air Races

    The aircraft doing the passing has to keep the aircraft in front of him in sight, and pass to the outside and no lower than the lead airplane's altitude.

    ?s on logging flight time

    I did, but it was probably overkill -- based on the questions they asked, they didn't look beyond the summary page of my printed-out digital log.

    The new airline thread

    Outside professional flying just requires chief pilot permission at my airline -- and numerous guys have that permission. Most that I know of do airshow flying or instructing.

    Punctuation Nazi sez: inappropriate apostrophe use, remain in AETC one more tour.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the storyline next season of him getting his clearance revoked, and his Article 15 with General Discharge, or maybe an FEB. An acceptable alternative would be the story of him getting kidnapped by ISIS and starring in his own special internet murder video.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Those guys didn't sacrifice anything, other than a bit of dignity in having to brief their bros on the ins and outs of sky-dicks.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Definitely a homophobic, anti-LGBT term.
  13. It is also a BUFF base with LA tail codes somewhere in the Virginia or DC area. Also one that can be easily serviced by the USCG station at Elizabeth City. That's not even mentioning the path he took to work on his bike.

    Well, that's gay.
