  1. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    So an 11F will PCS straight to a white jet base and go into IQT/MQT? Meh...probably more doable than skipping Phase III
  2. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    There’s a curfew in Korea again?
  3. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Throwing your people and their families under the bus as a symbolic genuflection/trying to save face with the Japanese doesn’t solve the square root of fuck-all. Do some math. We’ve got 100k people and their families over there. Statistically, we are outperforming our national demographic in terms of crime and accidental death. Whe that’s not the public reply that should be given to our hosts, this is NOT leadership, it’s reactive CYA chickenshit.
  4. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Should be front page Navy times with an update on pilot manning crisis below the fold.
  5. Easy: spring for the cellular data. No connection to NIPR. The co$t of $ecurity.
  6. 11-217: should it stay or go?

    Hadn’t checked in a while. Is the latest version bold/italics from cover to cover?
  7. Texas Church Shooting

    As written, sure. Completely unnecessary? It depends... Speaking from a very personal perspective.
  8. Texas Church Shooting

    And there it is...
  9. Texas Church Shooting

    Yep. Really wondering if/how he got around the Lautenburg rule.
  10. Yeah, I read the same source. Not to poop on his efforts, but that forum, like this one, has has a signal-noise ratio more suited to spirited (and useful) discussion than hard truth data. Hopefully there will be more actionable data on Mon, but as even Roto admitted, the he was not fully read into the news story before it went to press. Bottom line: I’m not expecting a TX date if I get voluntold, and that’s the problem with this, from my selfish perspective.
  11. Recall me to a cockpit? Ok, I get it. Recall me to a desk? I will be raging pissed.
  12. This is not VRRAD, if I'm reading correctly. I did not catch the word "voluntary" anywhere in the article. This is a "recall", with specific omission of the word "voluntary". Still think it's noise and posturing. I think this would be a bigger grenade to throw than stop-loss, and we haven't heard that bandied about. ...too much. ...yet.
  13. Non-Availibility lodging/letter

    Tried to cram me and my three kids (2 x Teenagers, a toddler and golden retriever) into a 1 BR TLF with lead based paint. While that was three years ago, don't bet on it.
  14. Agreed. But you wouldn't be an IFF grad to stay in sunny Playa del Enid.
  15. Hmmm...so lets do some math. Theres a whole squadron at HMN with jets and few if any IPs, so they're still ramping up. The leading edge of the production surge is going on a year in their ops units, pushing out the experience before them. And last but not least, if only there were somewhere to park IFF grads for two to three years while the rest of the pipeline gets up to speed. If only... Haha, nevermind, lets shut off IFF drops.
