  1. GA Aircraft Flown

    Wrong sir. It IS a cult! Got a ride in the back seat of this awhile back https://www.controller.com/listings/aircraft/for-sale/25226591/2011-vans-rv-8 awesome little airplane. If I only had the cash, it'd be mine...
  2. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    RV-8's are bad-ass...
  3. Headset questions for PPL and beyond

    For your PPL BUY a good mid-priced headset. One that is yours, not some schoolhouse communal headset some other dudes been sweating all over the ear seals and lipping up the boom mike. Ugh. Used communal headsets for 20+ years as a flightline maintainer not exactly hygienic. Once in Mother Blue's employ you'll get issued a nice shiny new one that's compatible with military radios (single plug, civilian headsets have a dual) For PPL flying I've had the same DC 10--30 headset for about 10 years, may not be the most comfortable headset in the world but it works great. Went with the DC because they also made/make the headsets we used on the flightline and we abused the crap out of those things and they kept on going and easy to repair when required. Your mileage may vary, but whatever you do get your own friggin headset it's worth the piece of mind and hygiene.
  4. NCAA Men's BBall (WTF?)

    Did he? I know the Wing King invited him down for a ride, but the rumor-mill INTEL I got his ride got WX CANX'd due to some freak snow storm/weather event of some sort. Bottom line: Don't fuck with Toro, he has connections...
  5. F-18 Down at Key West

    Thoughts and prayers.... RIP Brothers
  6. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Had that happen to me once at Bitburg back about 1986ish. Dead ass tired after working mid-shift getting jets ready to fly finally headed home and got tagged for an exit inspection at the gate. So sky cop with his big-ass dog start ‘inspecting’ my vehicle. Fido alerts on something under the driver’s seat and the cop has one of those “got ya’ looks on his face for his first ‘kill’ of the day. I’m freaking out. Cop reaches under the seat and finds… a half-eaten bag of Oreo’s. The now pissed-off and hugely disappointed cop slaps his faithful K-9 on its nugget and cuts me lose… Good times.
  7. Info on flight boots

    And that's EXACTLY why the one-piece green bag will go the way of the dinosaur. It's like a shoe wet dream....
  8. RUMINT: AD FTU F16s to Kelly Field

    Yeah, just imagine if MWR got into that business. Too expensive, lots of paperwork and no fun... then they'd just siphon off any profits to prop up failing ventures just like how they killed off the Aero Clubs.
  9. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    So the $6.90 question is.... which one; Super T, AT-6B or some off-the-wall bizarre rabbit they will pull out of a hat?
  10. Wing Re-Org Test

    Early 90s through 2002ish. That was the set up everywhere back then, MX troops under the OPS squadrons they work with/for & deploy with; with a few bases as exceptions. Give it time, someone 10-12 years down the road will decide to put all the MX folks under an O-6 to "make things better/more efficient".
  11. Gun Talk

    What is this, some sort of super secure center console for the car for storing stuff i.e. firearms, cash, Hope Diamond, booze, porn, etc...????
