    Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    Many European countries have the 20%ish VAT, but on top of the 40%+ income tax - worst of both worlds.
  2. Some bombers can do 540 knots at 200 AGL, close enough. Thought about 100' but that gets sporty with a wingspan > 100'

    Fly-Only Track in AMC

    It's possible... It's called flyers downrange on 180s, or 120s.

    Buffs - What can’t they do?

    Call it an instructor paper since they usually write/rewrite 69% of them anyway.

    And Yet Another Deadline Missed

    At least our functional was honest... looking for 365 volunteers said "list your top 5 follow on choices and we'll try to get you one of them"... would work as long as options 1-5 are Dyess.

    Gun Talk

    Yep - those other two conflicts POWs had to endure a lot, but at least had a chance to make it home vs immediate beheading or burning alive in a cage.
  7. Wow. Is it a reaction to the idea of GS pilots specifically? Since the train of GS you can't take disciplinary actions against left the station decades ago. IIRC AFMC has GS test pilots and the CSO training T-1 pilots are also GS.

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Probably because it takes an investigation to determine if the failure is bad mx on that jet, part failure, widespread defect, etc.

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    I'm guessing that would generate a referral training report at the very least - was he already designated as golden/protected that young or are we just that skosh on options for AMC wing commanders?

    DoD Being Sued

    The CC pool?
  11. The Vista (crossflow) and Pathfinder (ID MAJCOM shiny pennies to send to staff as midlevel O-3) programs seem to be borrowed from AMC as well and will certainly be a roaring success.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Was told by a cop once that civilians would be denied from base... Mil article 92 or something similar for "failure to obey the instructions of a sentry" or something similar. Not a JAG but sounds sketchy for forced consent. They do have the right to search for force protection per the standard base signage but unknown how that interacts with the search/consent/admissibility deal.

    Info on flight boots

    Two piece will probably never be authorized for ejection seat aircraft, so unless they make ocp coveralls you'll probably always have bags in the supply system.
