    Hurricane Michael

    I was stationed at Nellis when that storm hit Homestead. The Homestead guys had just finished a Flag and rode the storm out in Vegas. Can't imagine the horror of watching/seeing the devastation on TV from a hotel room while your family was so far away and no easy way to contact them in the pre-cell phone era.

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    Question: I remember seeing something about where they had (or were thinking about) having fresh out of basic training enlisted dudes as part of this experiment to compare learning skills/curve/styles what-the-fuck-ever. Did that actually happen? And if so, did any of those guys/gals graduate and what happens to them now? I know they can't take a rated slot, but send em' back to some sort of tech school (hopefully an E flying gig; i.e. Engineer, Boom, etc...) and not TCN escort duty, finance, shoe clerk stuff, etc... I hope, if qualified, any E's could have at least get their PPL out of it.

    Extension to Age Limit?

    Hey, I remember (15ish years ago) reading about a Guard-guy who was a SrA weapons loader on Hogs at Whiteman (I think). In his day job, he was a doctor; and no, not a vet or a gyno. So it possible...
  6. You are correct sir. My point, not put forward very well, was knowing procedures can save your ass. Imagine being a low-time 16 year old PPL stud having a very serious emergency and handling it like a pro. You go girl! Here's the ATC audio...
  7. Worked for this chick, a 16 year-old working on her PPL loses the right MLG inner strut and tire on take-off for her first XC solo. Lands safely without a scratch with only minor bending of the airplane... https://abcnews.go.com/US/video/teen-pilot-training-loses-wheel-makes-emergency-landing-57749886

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Soon after his arrival at said chow hall, charges of his reading/openly displaying copies of BBQ Pitmasters monthly surface. Said articles included images of smoked pork butts, baby-back ribs, bacon and assorted unapproved food items that are found "offensive" by said TCN and host nation personnel. Charges are brought up and our hero is destroyed in the court of public opinion followed by “administrative action” as he is reduced in grade to E-zero, forfeits all pay and allowances, GI Bill benefits revoked and is drummed out of the service on pure BS charges. All this and more brought to you by the Shoes of Mother Blue’s Deep State. Never tell the emperor he’s naked.

    So buy up a 100 or so T-53s (Cirrus SR-20s) like they have at the Zoo, divide among RPA units & TA-DA! the ACE program is reborn. Of course under a whole new name so everyone thinks this is some brand new idea....

    Squadron Officer School Credit for ERAU?

    If your SOS was in residence you can get the credit transferred over with an official Air University transcript. Also credit available for WIC, AIS, PIT and a few other cats and dogs. As always, YMMV check with your local ERAU rep for details.

    Space Corps Good or Bad?

    But will there be space SNCOs checking for proper spacesuit socks prior to testing?
