  1. Would be interesting to see a final summary of the AMP Program, from start to finish. Especially a total summation of how much money was put into it, and what exactly was gotten out of it. Even though the full-up AMP program was never completed, I'm sure there still were some benefits gleaned (AMP-light, mods installed on J-models, etc). But it sure seems like it was primarily a jobs program for Lockheed, Boeing, and the C-130 Program Office.
  2. Pick the battles that are big enough to matter, but small enough to win....
  3. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I'm not a Boeing guy, but I've bounced around the Aerospace and Defense industry for awhile. This job title and job description sounds like something you'd see someone with a Marketing degree and 10 years of experience doing. Certainly not a retired O-6. Maybe there is justice in the world.....
  4. Yeah, so a computer flew........another computer. Great. Real earth-shattering news....
  5. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Three years to the A-29? Where have I heard that before. Oh yeah, that's right. In the very first post of this entire thread. About eight years ago.....
  6. WTF are you babbling about?
  7. While Ron Paul can be a divisive guy, I think he brings up some good observations: Does anyone believe that on the eve of peace talks, just after the White House said the Syrian people should choose their own leaders, that Assad would launch a gas attack to turn the whole world against him? We don't either. We're back to the same lies that got us into Iraq. Do we never learn to question the propaganda?

  8. Navy Pilots on Strike over OBOGS Issues

    Don't know what the relation is between the T-45 and F-22 O2 issues. However, this was kinda discouraging....... Anticipating the pilot protest, the Navy sent a team of engineers and other specialists this week to its T-45 training bases in Kingsville, Meridian and Pensacola for talks with the pilots. A meeting Tuesday in Meridian “got heated,” Fox News is told. The pilots told the civilians from Navy Air Systems Command their complaints about the oxygen system were being ignored. When a senior Navy pilot showed photos of a faulty oxygen system he claimed had been sent up to NAVAIR’s headquarters in Maryland, the engineers said they never received the photos.
  9. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    I'd wager the argument of "what's amateur vs what's pro" depends more on what happens off the field, as opposed to on the field during the game.
  10. Latest Movies

    I didn't like Moonlight--I don't think it deserves all of the acclaim.
  11. What job that you do "for a half day a month" is worth the hassle of getting involved in what sounds like a very gray area?
  12. The Next President is...

    Ah, yes. Because the National Security Councils of the past gave been so infallible, and have such an impressive track record of good decisions......
  13. The Next President is...

    Yeah, this. Sorry nsplayr, I didn't read the wall of text you put up. But on a superficial level, I don't understand the issue with Bannon and the NSC. Open to hearing the counterpoints, but it still seems like a whole lot of sound and fury over nothing.....
  14. The Congressman is back yo

    There is a lot going on in DC. I like most of what I hear. However, how do I keep score? We hear a lot about what the new President and Congress are going to do: Bring back jobs, fix immigration, repeal Obamacare, fix healthcare, etc. When you look at the news, there is a lot of analysis on the day to day, and who said what to whom. But, I struggle to understand exactly what the road map looks like for all of these changes, and how far along we are. Is there some resource on the web that illustrates what concrete steps are being taken to get to the administration's goals? What bills are being introduced, what bills are passed, what executive orders are being issued, etc?
  15. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Done a lot of business over the years, with a lot of different people. Rarely is everyone rational, with "easily discernible goals"............
