  1. So who's driving this suit, Chuck or his "new" wife young enough to be his grand-daughter? Just askin'
  2. Stitch

    Airlift stops

    Fat Leonard scandal? WTF? One paragraph executive summary please.
  3. I'll bet they were banking on all the Hogs going VFR direct to the boneyard way before the -46 came on line, so no big deal. But I agree, this whole this is a giant goat rope.
  4. Contact Mr Bruce Wayne, Gotham City; he may be able to help.
  5. What a total crock of bullshit. My son was only like 8 months old when we brought him home from overseas. Apply for citizenship GMAFB. Hope this gets shot down quickly.
  6. Badass right? Been on the factory tour; bunch of miscellaneous stuff goes in one door, flying airplane comes out the other. And the building, on an uncontrolled field (KSZT), isn't that big to start with. Put it on amphibious floats and you've got a real (expensive) fun machine there.
  7. Well I'm sure we'll see the light airlift platform mother blue buys sitting on the ramp next to the light attack (AT-6B/Super -T/whatever) at a deployed location someday soon.... (yeah, right)
  8. How bout these the Quest Kodiak 100; a ten-seat, PT-6 turboprop that is just a tad smaller than a Caravan built from the ground up as a back-country/bush (so-to-speak) airplane not a commuter pressed into back-country ops. Already in service flying off dirt strips supporting missionary operations worldwide. Even comes with an aft pallet sized door for easy cargo load/unload or parachute ops for small items/people. Shameless plug for a local company I have no personal stake in, details here: https://questaircraft.com/
  9. Trolling for a TODO job there Pro-Super? LOL Been there, done that; no thank you!
  10. And now a view from EOR at Oshkosh 2019. First up is the 80+ year old tri-motor, then our friend in the Bonanza...
  11. No... that's chapter 1 in the enlisted PFE study guide....
  12. Looks like a standard issue dependapotamus easily spotted at you local BX, commissary, shopette, etc...
  13. 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....
