  1. F16 Training Crash (from the 162nd)

    Or what about the crash in the NTTR the day before the Hogs crashed? Pilot killed but very little known. Any info out there on that? Rough week.
  2. Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Thanks for posting, great videos. Amazing work by LS and MX personnel
  3. MV-22 Crash

  4. B-21 Raider

    That would have been perfect...had it been a Boeing jet.
  5. B-21 Raider

    I'd like to think it was intentional, but a nice salute to Raider-21.
  6. LRS-B contract awarded

    Well they gave her a name. The B-21 Raider...I can get behind that. http://www.popsci.com/air-forces-newest-bomber-is-b-21-raider

    Hal Hornburg flew with us back when he was ACC CC. He had zero knowledge of the BUFF so we messed with him a bit. The throttle cables run right above the Radar Nav and Nav's head downstairs. When he flew with us the pilots showed him the amazing technology that was the VATS. I think I've told this story before here on BO, but anyway he's up in the IP seat and the pilots are telling him about VATS and he's completely perplexed when the AC says throttle up on 4-8. Throttles move forward, speed increases, Hal is beside himself. The demo goes on in various ways for about 15-20 mins. It was a good flight.

    Or a Voice Activated Throttle System (VATS) like on the BUFF.
  10. LRS-B contract awarded

    Well here it is...The B-21. Looks like B-2 2.0 Sec Deb is taking suggestions for the name. Hopefully it is something a little tougher than "Spirit" http://www.defensenews.com/story/breaking-news/2016/02/26/b-21-bomber-air-force-lrsb/80976160/
  11. B-1 leaving Al Udeid

    Bummer for the BUFF dudes, been awhile since they've got to play. Sure they get sweet rotations out to Guam and get international headlines with shows of force, but those crews I'm sure would love to do something other than that.
  12. KC-46A Info

    A program that has delays and cost overruns? Surely you jest!
  13. Look for the white rock in the front yard...that spouse is getting helped out.
  14. Latest Movies

    Mad Max: Fury Road. Pretty much the most bat shit insane movie I've ever seen...and that is a good thing. Awesome movie.
  15. Jade Helm 15

    I think it'd be pretty sweet to participate as a civilian ala Robin Sage. I like to think I'd make a good warlord.
