  1. Hmm. I like Eddie Murphy a lot. His stand up comedy is brilliant. The original Coming to America was funny and a little edgy ("You may now clean the Royal penis") but that trailer makes the sequel look dull and potentially just a little woke.
  2. Thanks, DARPA Emailed you, but you can get me direct here: editor@10percenttrue.com
  3. Well, that would be a happy coincidence, but the truth is that I don't remember - pretty sure we didn't meet.
  4. If anyone knows how to get in touch with Robert Sweet, former A-10 pilot and former 476th FS/CC, can you PM me? Looking to do a story on Steve "Syph" Phillis.
  5. There's one for MX folk, but to join you have to answer questions about HYD systems and tyre pressures! Couldn't find anything for aircrew, but it was a good idea.
  6. This is a really long shot, and I apologise for the cryptic nature of it, but... Does anyone know MAC C-5 crewmembers who flew classified missions through the 1970s? Probably part of a unit whose mission included supporting AFSC and CIA. I would imagine it was a tight-knit community, but I don't know anyone who was part of it. Specifically, I am looking to speak to a crew who flew into Egypt on 21 Sept 1977. TIA
  7. Some questions for any Eagle drivers who feel able to comment: c.270 hours of total time, and only 60 or so in the Eagle. Is that enough for what was being asked of him? There's no mention of JHMCS, so I assume he was not wearing it. Why not? And had he been, does it give substantial SA cues that might have given him a chance to recover earlier? Hard deck of 4,000' seems very low, especially given the WX. Is that standard? He pulled just over 8gs to recover. Presumably, had he thought he was going to hit the sea, he would have pulled as many as he could - was the limi
  8. The article contains an interesting line: "[the idea that there is a link] between a football game and patriotism of the country does seem a bit disjointed". It's called American Football. How much more concrete of a link could you ask for?
  9. Happy birthday, Air Force! (the detail-driven folks at Dover have obviously been enlisted to help our the DoS).
  10. It’s irrelevant as to whether the Russian/Chinese FLANKERS are on an American military unit emblem because of a mistake or because or regulation. What matters is that it makes you look stooopid. Surely it’s someone’s job in the Air Force to give a shit about that, even if it does mean having to know your arse from your elbow?
