  1. Stupid question from a former maintainer: What happens when somebody has to eject with the two-piece; will their pants end up around their ankles when the seat separates and the chute finally pops? Will there be special suspenders involved to prevent this, especially for those whom are a bit more portly in the midsection? Complete elimination of the bag and everyone in the exact same uniform is like the Holy Grail of Shoedom, safety and mission requirements be dammed. Just throwing this nugget out for discussion....
  2. Last Doolittle Raider Dick Cole passed away at 103 years old, IAW af.mil and other sources. Ref: https://www.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1809760/lt-col-dick-cole-last-surviving-doolittle-raider-passes-away-at-age-103/ Thank you for your service sir. Not just the Raid, which was HUGE and I'm sure many thought was a suicide mission, but all your contributions to the war effort and beyond. 🥃
  3. That's probably your best option, lots of 100LL, flying off a non-towered field if possible, burger burns on the ramp at the end of the flying day, host a pancake fly-in or a Young Eagles event a few times a year to inspire the next generation; all the fun with minimal bullshit. Look to EAA start your own chapter with a flying club attached. EAA National is having a big push right now for chapters to do just that.

    This was awesome. Like how the Ferry Command gal meets up with an airplane she delivered (and signed) 70ish years later. Way cool.

    Watched last night. Excellent. Had a family member's name listed in the Roll of Honor at the end. If you haven't seen it, do so.
  6. Actually it's more like a Doccu-Drama like those old "Mini-Series" that were on network TV in the 80's...
  7. Or just kick the can down the road for the next CSAF/MAJCOM/somebody else to deal with it...

    No kidding, looks like I'll have to take the kids to this one. SO much of the 20th century (WWII, Cold War, etc...) was shaped by this war.
