    Reno Air Races

    As of late it seems to be fuck up, move up...but I digress. When I was at Laughlin back before the dawn of time, #4 stuck the top of his tail in leads AB. They left the jet at Laughlin for a couple weeks while they repaired it. We got a close up look right after it happened and I remember thinking how close he had to be to get that kind of damage.

    Reno Air Races

    Typically a maneuver reserved for the Thunderbirds.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    The latest incident at the Deid typifies why the Air Force is a burning dumpster of idiocy. For those who have deployed to this garden spot in recent times you might know the story of “Ghost” a stray dog that several squadrons adopted and nursed back to health. Well it appears the all knowing leadership decided to capture and euthanize “Ghost.” Hey Fingers, this is why you and your scyophants are FAILING. Someone have that deployed commander choke himself.

    Didn't a revolution start over this very issue?

    T-38 Down @ DLF

    When I flew 38's I think our toughest EP was a Right Gen No Cross in crappy Weather. I vaguely recall hearing about dual hydraulic failure and a dude who recovered the jet to one of the dry lakebeds...but that is a very old memory. Obviously some serious maintenance issues which has been a recurring trend through the years at UPT bases and civilian maintenance. I don't even know what to say about arming your ejection seat.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    He accepts offer and completes a PCS to DC to work for CSAF. Six months later AFPC drops a 365 to Afghanistan on him...PCS ADSC won't let him turn it down and he finds himself sitting in Kabul guarding TCNs in the chow hall.

    New AFPC commander a pilot

    As an aviator he is legit, as a combat leader he was beyond legit. I know Boomer very well and had hoped he would be more effective at turning the ship. A year after he took over we were having a private conversation. We we talked about some of the changes, somethings that had yet to change and some recent buffoonery including silly shit like SECAF puking all over a Tbird. I think I said something to the effect of "how can you let some of these things happen?" He took a breath and replied "CH, you would be surprised how little power I actually have." I'm not trying to defend him, just saying we need to keep the context of the political climate and political beasts that actually run the show. Maybe if a few of these four stars spoke out and fell on their swords it might be different...but I've yet to see anyone with the selfless stones to do it.

    Puhleezzz...if your liberal utopian vision of universal healthcare is what they are doing in the UK I sincerely hope you never need medical attention. The NHS system in the UK is in full on meltdown, they themselves have stated they are Condition BLACK. Analysis by the Royal College of Surgeons found that over the past year an average of 193,406 people a month did not get surgery within 18 weeks of being referred. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/jan/13/193000-nhs-patients-a-month-waiting-beyond-target-for-surgery
