  4. SNL Call Sign Skit

    How long before somebody gets that callsign? Other than the obvious stupid stuff, that was a good skit.
  5. B-1 (Bone) questions

    key phrase right there, not excusing their actions, but way back then BUFF CAS was something shiny and new and everyone wanted to implement. Took us awhile to get our minds wrapped around it and learn how to do it correctly.

    Hell yeah...good to see those guys and gals get in the fight
  7. 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.

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

    I'd like to think it was intentional, but a nice salute to Raider-21.

    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.
