  1. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    He's a SSgt who appears to be giving instruction to the selfie queen...
  2. "The Air Force takes a balanced approach to maintain core capabilities and is committed to providing the competitive military compensation necessary to recruit and retain high quality and experienced Airmen..." Is this a satire document?
  3. "Center the Bug"

    If it's your leg, do what you want with the bug. If you're the Captain/AC, pipe up on how you want it run. Don't mess with someone else's way of flying unless it's outside of procedure or it's a technique that can end in a violation death. I think it's just a stupid detail for sim instructors to be constantly harping on in order to browbeat the importance of a solid cross-check. That may service a purpose. Once on the line though...not helpful.
  4. This. Why would any pilot on the BRS look at their potential in the private sector/airlines and NOT get out after their UPT ADSC?
  5. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Nah. They'll find that the squadron fostered a "culture of insubordination" because you can't go stepping on the some individual's freedom of speech. It's the internet...which is basically a safe zone, right? Just fire the squadron commander, promote the wing commander, and move on.
  6. Panetta to Lift Ban on Women in Combat

    When standards are dropped, fighting forces get weaker, regardless of what's between a soldier's legs. This is not a good move.
  7. Future T-38 replacement?

    In the C-130 (classic and J models) tactile switch difference is clutch in several time sensitive situations (airdrop, NVG airland, etc). Several switches require touch only for identification, and that streamlines human factors. Touch screens are neat a ground speed zero, but they reduce capability in a tactical and time sensitive environment because they require visual verification (a.k.a. diverted attention). Compound that with turbulence, smoke/fumes, and task saturation, and those screens will be a liability. Thank engineers, but i'll keep my switches.
  8. Su-25 Down in Syria

    I'd pay money if they'd let me take my 1911 .45 and as many mags as I want. Although that GAU-5 sounds like a great idea to have strapped in a few places in a herk.
  9. Future T-38 replacement?

    ...and they probably want to call it a flight deck, not a cockpit. How progressive. Autocorrect is gunna double my data inputs times.
  10. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Doesn't merit it's own thread, and no better place to put this: https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2018/02/05/deploy-or-get-out-new-pentagon-plan-could-boot-thousands-of-non-deployable-troops/ Nothing so useful as applying an Army fix for an Army problem to a Joint environment. Having worked in a "Joint" staff for over a year now, I'm ready to never work with the Army again.
  11. I need some advice

    ClearedHot said it best: Follow your heart. You will have doubts. Don't sweat someone else's experience. This is your journey, choose to fully engage in it.
  12. Drone Pilots: We Don’t Get No Respect

    Can they call it Ministry of Vigilance so we can be more Orwellian about it?
  13. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    "words, words, words, government shutdown wasn't that bad...more words...who should we blame..." It's on par with a 500 pound morbidly obese man arguing how getting off the couch and walked to the refrigerator should count as a workout so he should be allowed more food. The government failed at it's basic function: operating. How long has it been since congress passed a complete budget? The system is thoroughly broken. We should not be measure inches of failure here, we should be demanding success. But seeing how excellence in any form is frowned upon now, I'm pretty sure that's a lost cause.
  14. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Perhaps in the C-17 community. Care to share with the rest of us?
  15. Apparently, we're all pretty stupid,...

    In the school's "safe zone"
