  1. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Functional badge as expected.
  2. That's my whole point: AFPC thinks this is a "smart move" because they get to net-gain a few CAF pilots, while forgetting about the trust relationship that they have been trying to repair. CAF wide, all the young CGOs watching this are taking notes and wondering if the Porch and A1 actually mean it when saying "guys...we know we've fvcked up...and we promise things will be different from now on." Empty words? You be the judge. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  3. This is not about a dick measuring contest. My beef is that the porch is sending inexperienced wingmen to the Eielson aggressors because they supposedly have no choice. Worse still, these wingmen are coming off only one year in Korea. A remote assignment they went to with the PROMISE of a follow on regular tour. Going to the aggressors essentially freezes their development as fighter pilots. It's not a problem to go as a senior 4FL or an IP, but it is a death blow to a young fighter pilot's development. A terrible breech of trust. So AFPC breaks that promise and sends them to the 18AGRS. Fine...we "have no choice" and have a problem absorbing all the wingmen in the CAF. Needs of the Air Force and all that. Yes sir, service before self...got it. Then, THE VERY SAME WEEK these guys are learning about the breaking of the promise, these wingmen are hearing about this crossflow. I'd be livid. Worse still, if it were me, my mind about staying one day past my commitment would be made up. No fvcking way. How many other young wingmen are watching??? AFPC's justification, btw, is some bullshit about a net gain of fighter pilots via this crossflow. Of course, they're not factoring the 36 CAF wingmen that just watched this happen. YGBSM.

  4. Ah good. We have a young wingman who is going to go to the 18 AGRS at Eielson after only a year in Korea, so that makes sense. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  5. Latest from the CAF FB page says that the flight pay bump probably won't happen until October. They've been talking about this since February, but it's moving at the speed of government I guess.
  6. Lost Another - Pilot OK

    Don't assume I care what the difference is.
  7. Lost Another - Pilot OK

    It's gotten better ever since AETC put a loadmaster in each RSU and in every CT rear cockpit. T-6 checklist discipline is through the roof! Sent from my iPad using Baseops Network Forums

    Only if you are a giant pvssy. EDIT: I've been a BO member for 14 fvcking years and I can't say p*ssy? YGBSM. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  9. If you don't USE trim or you don't FIND trim, the end result is the same...heh.
  10. Jeebus Christ what a douchey post, hatedont. Seriously, are you trying to troll? While you clear your airmen off at 1630 so they can line up at the CDC and take their night classes, some 20 year old crew chief is on his 12th hour of work...for the 6th consecutive day...before he takes one day off and repeats that week again, and again, and again. That's why the MXG has a special word for the off-flightline folks. And yes, someone might actually die if your troops don't do their job on time. The 50 hour wingman next to me needs his time in the books to manage his weapon system and come home alive...not just in wartime, but every damn day. Time is a finite resource, and our pilots don't have time to do your job because you won't do it yourself. An hour wasted for TMO bullshit is an hour that LT might have needed in the sim/vault/jet/etc. FVCKUPS LIKE YOU DESCRIBE (AND CONDONE, YGBSM) ARE WHY WE ARE HEMMORHAGING COMBAT CAPABILITY.

  13. I found out. I'm am in-res IDE grad, so not a big surprise. (That's not endorsement from me of the use of school in res as a discriminator...I'm just stating fact.) Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
