  1. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Yes, but the flash in the video looks strikingly similar to the muzzle flash below and orangeish. Not white like cameras.
  2. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Had to be multiple shooters. I just watched this video over and over. There is clearly a second muzzle flash above the automatic fire at the :31 mark. Maybe it's the conspiracy theory in me but I don't know what else it could be https://mobile.twitter.com/TIME/status/914847463424507904/video/1
  3. Unless you're an airline sim instructor. That can be a great deal if you live in base. Home every night, six hour days, good pay. Heard a rumor highest paid airline guy is a WB sim IP.

    Don't forget LAX777 FO went about two years 9 months and LAX 717 Capt went pretty jr too! But with the exception of the 777 in LAX, WB FO went fairly senior.
  5. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    Yup, but many a capt I've flown with has told me: "If you stay in this biz long enough at least one of three things will happen to you: divorce, furlough, or merger." Talk to any fNWA/prior South guy at DAL about where they stood premerger vs now and it's a lot different. That being said, according to recent DAL hiring/retiring numbers, those hired 2014+ are looking at being at the top 50% of the seniority list by 2022 IIRC. I'd believe it when I see it though.

    Look into the Selective Service. Cat B IMA meaning you get paid and will still receive TRS. My new unit will require two days a mo and 13 AT/year. Seems to be a little easier on the airline schedule, at least for me.

    And I'm sure it's been "ops tested" numerous times!

    So none of you got your military competency certs after UPT? I know I wasn't directly thinking "airline" during UPT and pretty much two months prior to applying to the airlines, but I was damn sure I was going to keep those doors open "just in case." I'm glad I did.
  9. https://www.sss.gov/About/Agency-Structure/Reserve-Forces-Officers I've heard its a pretty flexible gig. I was just seeing if anyone has recent experience.
  10. Anyone here ever know of anyone doing the selective service officer gig? I heard it's a Cat B IMA program and is flexible. Just wondering if anyone has any current info.

    But hey, we got some nice narrow body C Series orders on the way!

    Consider yourself lucky and warned then. I got the talking to after trying to move one day of MLOA. Another buddy of mine got the talking to during one of his new hire meetings. It is happening even though it hasn't happened to you yet. Also be armed with the knowledge that if you call in sick within seven days of MLOA, you're now on their radar.

    Unless it's from the CPO concerning MLOA...
