  1. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Shocked she was back in a flight suit. Ask the Thunder Chickens about the time she puked all over their family model.
  2. B-21 Raider

    The B-2 is labor intensive but it can most certainly go places the BUFF can't. There is also something to be said about capacity... There was a time when USAF had 700 B-52's alone, now we are talking about a total bomber force under 200. The BUFF is one hell of a bomb wagon and we have put a LOT of money into making sure it remains viable, but in the grand scheme of things do we really want to send out kids to war in a 100 year old airplanes?

    I get it...will you answer one question? Are smart folks at least trying to tell them the approach is wrong?

    Like a runaway freight train brother.

    Sorry brother, nothing so far.

  12. While everyone has their panties in a wad arguing about Trump and Russia, the Syrians just shot down an Israeli Viper...Massive response launched. The plane made it back to Israeli territory before it crashed, the pilots was recovered and taken to the hospital, one in serious condition. Another Iranian Drone launched from Syrian entered Israel...this could get ugly.

    Recent controversial legislation was pursued by senior USAF officials that would seek to delegate that authority down to the service level. I would imagine they are near the threshold and should the balloon go up with NK it would be on in an instant. I would say get out as quickly as possible but I personally think the situation is so bad they would immediately recall folks to active duty.
  14. Contractor UPT

    Actually they are thinking Maxwell...More soon. LOTS more soon!
  15. Arizona F-16 stirkes cable makes emergency landing

    At least there wasn't a cable car attached to it like last time...
  16. Help with a Divorce

    He was a flight engineer and was 38 at the time, his idea was to delay as long as possible, "She is a smoker and I will out last that bitch"...Savage.
  17. Help with a Divorce

    I flew with a dude who separated at 19 years so his wife wouldn't get half of his retirement. He joined the reserves and was still flying there last I heard. Best of luck.
  18. Su-25 Down in Syria

    I of course had my dopey M9 but I also flew with a compressed M4, made a leg strap so I could strap it to my side in the unlikely event I was actually able to get out of a flaming gunship. I also carried a handful of 30 round magazines and a few other trinkets that would make sure I exceeded the capacity of the chute. At least I would be harder to hit moving that fast towards the ground.
  19. The Next President is...

    This has become personal and pointless. Talk amongst yourselves.
  20. The Next President is...

    The only portion of Page's testimony the corroborated anything was that he (Page), personally met with senior Russian Folks. He never implicated Trump, in fact, to this day there is ZERO evidence Trump did anything...ZERO. I don't like the guy but before we impeach and convict him I would like to see the evidence! Sorry brother but I think it is you who is wrapped up in a false equivalence....our at least some false facts. It was not just Hillary hiring a company to collect oppo research, they made it up...flat out made up salacious details to add shock value. Pissing on hookers...come on, you honestly think that was collected raw intel that added value to a fucking FISA warrant? I guess you are ok with that as long as it furthers the liberal agenda. We it comes to Don Jr and Emails from what I have seen all he was told was they had dirt on Hillary...I have yet to see where the Russians said we have the hacked emails. Except for the news story that falsely said the Trump campaign got the DNC info BEFORE it was released to the public when in fact they got it AFTER. I am certainly not in favor of one party using hacked emails provided by a foreign government to influence an election, but thus far I have yet to see proof that happened. As a bit of a sidebar, we still don't know who actually got Hillary's emails...likely many folks did which leads me to ask why isn't she in jail?
  21. The Next President is...

    There is a huge difference between information that is actionable and information that is manufactured and untrue, I believe that is the issue at the center of the pushback. If it the information us true then you are correct who cares where it comes from (and it wouldn't be a crime for Don Jr to meet with the Russians to get "true bad stuff on Hillary). I am happy to let Mueller's investigation roll, but thus far we have seen no evidence of collusion and the only charges relate to lying to investigators and obstruction.
  22. The Next President is...

    Two issues with your assumption. 1. It appears Hillary's campaign paid for the dossier and provided probably untrue information that was included. That dossier was used as part of the FISA probable cause to justify tapping Trump's campaign. 2. Some of the same folks running the Trump investigation also conducted part of the Hillary investigation and some have deep and troubling perception ties to her campaign. The Deputy Director of the FBI and one of the principle investigators acknowledged his wife's campaign received a $500,000 donation from the Hillary Campaign. Was it documented....yes, should he have recused himself, ABSOLUTELY.
