  1. What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?
  2. Latest Movies

    Deadpool 2 teaser. Fuck yeah. Edit: Turn down the fucking volume for fucking language if you're at fucking work. Loser.
  3. Huggy, As we have discussed before, probably a wise choice. I love these little hot rods. I've been involved with them in some fashion or the other since 2008. Right now, mine are torn apart (just wrapped up a year's worth of client projects, so we're diving back into our jets now). I've got new MB ejection seats coming, and just spec'd out the components for a glass cockpit upgrade that we'll install this summer concurrently when we do the seats. I'm looking forward to having some fun this year. :)
  4. You asked for a reason as to why, in your opinion, people seemed upset. I gave you one. As for my own personal situation, no it does not preclude me from making a living. However, I am not an airline pilot; I'm an engineer and a business owner. I employ aerospace engineers, aircraft maintenance technicians, as well as pilots and flight engineers to fly my aircraft. From the perspective of an employer, yes it appears that an effort is being made to restrict the options of those looking to get out (further down the line) in order to shore up numbers. A spade is a spade, I call it like I see it. Other things may be going on, but it doesn't change perception.
  5. Maybe because there are other, better ways for him to do his job and meet his requirements; than to try and restrict the ability of people to make a living once their service commitment is complete.
  6. They did. It's called the CF-5D, license built by Canadair back in the day. Bigger wing, leading edge flaps, -15 engines (J85-13 core with a smattering of -21 internal components), beefier landing gear, bigger wheels and tires. Even modded them with CF-18 HUD and HOTAS. Canadians used them as LIFT aircraft for a number of years before retiring them. They even SLEP'd their birds before putting them in storage. Great jets.
  7. Reno Air Races

    Win? That would be a nice encore...
  8. Was flying for the Air Force worth it?

    Since when has that stopped a drunk sailor? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
  9. Reno Air Races

    Sounds like a good time had by all. Work, as usual, kept me from making it out this year. Buddy of mine made his Reno debut in Formula One this year.

    Again, until there's some confirmed backstory: all you have is some guys sport-bitching on here in my opinion. If it means that much to you guys, then someone send him a message on Facebook and ask him to explain here. And with that, I am going to leave Oklahoma politics in Oklahoma and go have a beer on the beach.
