    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    FIFY, since we all know the AF won't actually make a decision/do anything worthwhile for at least 3 more years, and then even after that you gotta pork barrel the hell out of it.

    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    A-29, combat proven. It's legitimately ready to buy off the shelf. While I like the AT-6 I just foresee more testing/wasting time/money.

    Heavy guys instructing T-38s

    Vance sends their FAIP's/heavy IP's to SPS for a week to shadow/sandbag IFF.

    100% agree, no harm at all, I like to think it would make them better IP's since they've been exposed to more things. I'm curious as to whether this will spread beyond SPS, since CAFB also has in house IFF, so there's potential. And it wouldn't really be that hard to have the DLF/END guys do IFF then walk across base and start PIT.

    I mean isn't the point of any course to not suck by the end of it so to speak? Or at least suck less, so to speak. Anyways, getting this back on topic. I don't think there is much disagreement about T-1 bro's being able to fly a T-38. I do agree with the statements concerning knowledge and exposure to actually being wingmen being important. The only way you're going to get that is by sending fighter dudes back to UPT, good luck with that.

    Yes. B-Track, so the multi-role one.

    Interesting, wonder what happens when they head to bombers following their FAIP tour?

    Holloman Units

    @HuggyU2 I believe the Tophats, 310th FS, is the only US Viper squadron left at Luke (the Ducks might still be there, can't confirm). Holloman currently has the 311th, 314th, and the 8th (they're still building up though). Rumor on the street is Holloman will eventually stand up the 7th as well to bring 4 squadrons to the base.

    This has been going on for a few years now...people are just now catching on?

    Holloman Units

    The transition has been done before, give them a call, worst they can do is say no.

    Kadena F-15 Crash

    Glad the pilot is okay

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Very curious to see what actually happened with the seat and how the AF responds.

    We’re doomed

    Someone recently told me that this has gone away

    We’re doomed

    This is why I'm embarrassed to have spent 4 years there

    Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    Okay, so young guy question (check user name). What' the likely course of action for this? Like FEB, slap on the wrist, Q3, nothing? Just curious
