  1. This thread seems like it's mostly for nav studs, but would any 11x types want to weight in about life/flying there. Very curious to hear if it's a viable option for a second assignment or if it's a hard gig to get. Seems like decent living if you enjoy riparian activities (fishing, diving, surfing); flying can't be too bad with no student pilots right? Heard the T-1 pilots are mostly civilians, but the T-6 instructors are all mil, that correct?
  2. 442d FW has a sizable AD compliment
  3. this is guard only correct? there's no one getting sent after say being T-1 trained and T-6 FAIPing?
  4. update: in T-6s for the AD now, age waiver issue is ancient history, my old unit is now interested in having me come there but no one has any idea how that would work. still looking for advice/examples.
  5. just be glad they let our old asses into UPT
  6. gotcha and agreed. though i'm curious about BAI's etymology now. first remember seeing it written here. admittedly i was about 5 when it was published.
  7. the term has existed since at least the late eighties, but i haven't heard it used much.
  8. Going guard enlisted to active duty upt stud, I feel everyday like I'm driving the sole car toward Washington in Independence Day.
  9. there was beer for studs at vance drop from what i remember END 17-07 F-35 (fake out w/ F-16) F-16 x3 F-15E A-10 C-146 U-28 EC-130 Compass Call T-6 FAIP x2 C-130 x2 (Guard) C-17 to Hickam (T-1 FAIP fakeout) (maybe a second) KC-135 KC-10 to Mcguire KC-10 to Travis Saudi Eurofighters x2
  10. the viper on the left is that video was biggest piece of shit i ever worked on, still the least offensive thing shown
  11. after reading this thread for about a decade i finally went to my first drop night. reading back through the drop i remember the individual assignments but respect to anyone who can be there and simply remember them all. maybe it's a learned skill, we'll see.
