    KC-46A Info

    I’m at McConnell, and they have been waiting eagerly, most of this year, for the arrival of the KC-46. They’ve even got MOB1 stickers all over. Nothing has been announced publicly that they would have a jet imminently.

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Seen on the Chive. She’s probably just not near any Cyber dudes and had to settle 😁

    Not required. Female Army O-6s don’t make rank based on anything present company would list as desireable Recommend off dry, switches safe, RTB with full load.

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Raising the handles “lights the fuse” more or less. Putting the pins back doesn’t prevent anything. Odds are if it didn’t go, it probably won’t...maybe. Do you feel lucky? Military firefighters know what to cut to safe the seat, but I doubt the folks at Midland had that info.

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    The part of the story that hasn’t been addressed yet is, after landing, and after shutdown, some poor bastard had to unstrap from, AND dismount a seat, that MIGHT still be about to go. “Nope, I’m good, I’m gonna just sit here, head back, elbows in, visor down until sometime next week. At least it will stay cool now that it’s a convertible.”

    ENJJPT or UPT for AFSOC?

    ENJJPT made me a navigator. Avoid like the plague. YMMV.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    That Cyber Thread

    Concur. AFPC works to make sure Cyber operators never build any continuity or experience. The flying community doesn’t send people for a tour in KC-135s followed by a tour in F-22s followed by an ISR platform, but it is fairly standard to flip 17D/S officers from a CPT squadron to a Comm Flight to work as an exec. 57IAS at Nellis gets first tour LTs operating as Aggressors. There should be some career lanes for OCO, DCO, Infrastructure, etc.

    B-21 Raider

    Comparison was to the F-111. If it can carry 24x JASSM or JDAM internally, I’ll withdraw that statement. If it is a 2 engine jet, it will probably carry less than the F-111.

    B-21 Raider

    Yes, but subsonic, internal carriage only, so less capable.

    B-21 Raider

    News update: B-21 is going to involve “complex trade-offs”. None of this is surprising until you figure out they are building what the article says is a 2 engine jet with less thrust, range and payload.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    TLDR. Can anyone tell me if this update identifies ship collisions as a leading cause of falls? Fall prevention can be aided through rigorous clearing of your flight path (float path?)

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Don’t know how many have seen this, but just got the word that we will no longer be allowed to “tack on” an airman’s stripes when they get promoted. This behavior is considered hazing and will not be tolerated. By current standards, my high school was populated with war criminals. Anyway, sorry for the distraction, what were we talking about here?

    B-21 Raider

    Ok, I’ll admit I had to look that one up. For those that don’t go to Wikipedia... Theseus's paradox, is a thought experiment that raises the question of whether an object that has had all of its components replaced remains fundamentally ugly. If you need a stand-off platform, just stop the weird skin and materials MX on the B-2. The RCS will still be better than the other bombers, it’s nuke capable, gets good gas mileage and is younger than some of the people who work on it.
