  1. Gun Talk

    I found this picture of him in his mother’s basement....
  2. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Shack. There’s innovative thinking and there’s being reckless. This is the latter.
  3. F16 Training Crash (from the 162nd)

    Doesn't look good: http://www.eacourier.com/news/dead-in-arizona-air-national-guard-jet-crash/article_f488842e-9290-11e7-99ab-ef5508a4fc09.html here here
  4. Gun Talk

    Anyone here into 3 gun? I'm looking at semi auto shotguns including the Beretta 1301 comp, Remington Versamax Competition, and FM SLP Competition. Anyone have experience with any of these? I've heard Remington's quality has been hit or miss lately.
  5. "We're not training commercial pilots."

    Only if you make it that way or if your leadership sucks in my opinion. Hiring civilians for squadrons is a step in the right direction though to your point. Being merely adequate at ground duties that don't impact people's lives (training, etc) is good enough. Ball wash doesn't matter. The only thing that does is flying and the duties involving or related to flying such as instruction to make guys better, mission planning, debriefing, etc.
  6. Was he one of the dudes that got C-17s out of 38s?
  7. Fighter guys don't get their base until RTU, just how the machine works based on needing to make it through IFF and then RTU. What they get at assignment night is at least where they're going to RTU (Luke/Holloman/Kelly for the F-16 for example).
  8. Thunderbird F-16 flips at KDAY

    Anything is possible. For now we need to give Speedy the benefit of the doubt and let the safety investigators do their thing.
  9. Thunderbird F-16 flips at KDAY

    I'm in violent agreement with you. Word on the street is they'll be getting F-35s though......
  10. AD vs ANG

    They have boards for dudes like you that need to go to UPT and dudes like me that have been flying fighters for 10 years, apples and oranges. ANG units need brand new guys and experienced guys from active duty. It's a balance. I don't think you're disadvantaged by having only 13 hours. I barely had my PPL going to UPT and it worked out. The USAF is very good at taking dudes with no experience and making them pilots. In my opinion, what matters most is having a good attitude and being a good bro. That goes for UPT and even WIC. As I see it, there are 3 universal rules for being successful in the USAF and maybe life in general: 1. Don't be a douche. 2. Work hard. 3. Help others get better.
  11. AD vs ANG

    The 115th is a phenomenal group of dudes, you'd be foolish to pass up the opportunity. I got hired by them on their last experienced hiring board and will be going there post-active duty. If you go active duty you're rolling the bones on aircraft type and location. Timing, then luck, and then skill will determine what you get in AD.
  12. How to leave Afghanistan

    100% agree.
