    Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    “In Russia, you don’t flare jet...it flares you”
  2. Here’s a little tidbit about the bonus for tax season. If you take the lump sum upfront and also contribute to a Roth IRA throughout the year, the lump sum will bump your annual AGI above the threshold where you can contribute the full $5500/yr. If you don’t watch it carefully, you’ll contribute too much and will be subject to tax penalties.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Which is unfortunate and IMO part of what’s wrong with the MAF “community”. I’ve been in both and like aspects of each one, but naming and roll calls would bring some much needed camaraderie and morale to a MAF community that needs it badly.

    The Next President is...

    Who needs a competent SECDEF like Mattis when you have a POTUS who says “I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me!” and ““[The generals] don’t know much because they’re not winning”? Sad day for the armed forces indeed

    53 ADOs in a group...Was Oprah your Gp/CC? “Everyone gets to be an ADO!”
  8. KC-135. I thought this was more common. Apparently not.
  9. Not sure about other communities, but KC-135 IP’s are certified sim operators after graduating instructor school. This doesn’t sound like such a crazy idea to me.

    Is the KC-10 going to be cut?

    Can’t us tanker guys stick together and go back to the age-old practice of ripping C-17 drivers for landing gear up?

    IPhone to Galaxy S9+

    Negative ghost rider. Currently Google Maps is the only one that allows you to download offline maps AFAIK. Apple Maps is nowhere near as good as Google Maps, but it’s getting better...slowly

    Pilot retention in your neck of the woods?

    I’m a 12-year tanker guy. Of the guys I know who are complete with their UPT commitment, I’d say 40-50% are still in. In all, I don’t see the sky falling like many depict on this board, but retention certainly isn’t where the AF needs it to be to maintain the status quo in my neck of the woods.

    The new airline thread

    I prefer manually pinging G2 and the scheduling Lt to improve my schedule. Much more interactive that way.

    “Red is the new Green”

    Not ostracized, it’s just seen as a moot point in the tanker. We aren’t maneuverable, don’t have defensive systems, and for that reason are rarely placed inside any threat ring. Honestly, the most tactical thing tanker drivers can do is to do a thorough mission plan and brief, understand the threats, STFU, stop trying to sound like an airline pilot, and stick to the EMCON.
