  1. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Maybe they can do an ORE on how to be on the same tower frequency as the rest of the base first

  3. B-1 (Bone) questions

    And there's the problem, people think sniper/litening pods are good for CDE scans. Real big picture sure, but FAR from the fidelity/accuracy of scans accomplished by the guys who actually are meant/built for such a thing. A buff should never be doing those scans, and its overselling capability to say to the Army a sniper/litening can effectively accomplish scans (especially to the level the army wants/expects). Again, we need to tell the Army to off and play each asset to what it's for, not try to make everything persistent ISR...those assets already exist. And recognize the realities of war.. plenty of unavoidable CDE to win Mosul and Raqqah. Funny how rolling back ISIS accelerated when we focused more on tactics to kill people vs how to not kill people.
  4. B-1 (Bone) questions

    Yep.. sniper/litening is better coordinate accuracy than most of the ISR type pods. Which is why the assertions above (previous pages, not your post) about a sniper equipped aircraft not being suitable for BOT are a little strange.
  5. B-1 (Bone) questions

    Agree that the crew should be pulling/maximizing SA, just pointing out that focusing on a strobe/pod mismatch as the major cause does a dis service in deriving lessons learned and preventing it from happening again. Tarnak Farms and multiple other OIF/OEF/Desert Storm incidents reinforce that we all need to train/focus on it as a CAF.
  6. B-1 (Bone) questions

    Read the report. Not saying the aircrew were faultless by any means, but based on the chain of events the same outcome could very easily have happened in daytime. Adherence to JPUB by all members of the CAS team is the best way to prevent this.
  7. B-1 (Bone) questions

    Never seen anyone do it.. and the B-1 isn't a DV airlift platform
  8. The Next President is...

    Is a credit rating considered personal property? If so, ordering military personnel to contract with a private company (and put their credit rating on the line for govt expenses) raises some issues. In addition, with your credit score often being lowered for too many accounts open, it could affect their personal credit even if no issues paying it off - any personal finance gurus know the point at which this would occur?
  9. Airline ticket without DTS

    The key words are additional cost to the government (like you had to stay an extra day and got the per diem, etc.) I believe if you get bumped with no additional government cost you could keep the $ but then couldn't claim delay-related expenses.
  10. That Cyber Thread

    Don't the cyber patches wear... patches?
  11. Airline ticket without DTS

    FYI for your RA JFTR paragraph 040502 specifically states that not using your GTC can't be used as a reason to deny reimbursement. That being said it's still better to go through CTO if you can to get the govt contract fare - that way if your TDY changes etc. you aren't stuck with a non refundable ticket.
  12. Promotion and PRF Information

    Good thing AFGSC didn't copy both those initiatives. Phoenix/Striker crossflow also hurts the bleeding instructor manning since (on the Striker side at least) the year groups we send are guys who have been instructors for 1-2 years and get crossflow guys who won't upgrade for that same length of time
  13. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Wasn't that the pre-Pueblo IFS (not all the way to CSEL/250 hours, but PPL level)? Even with a syllabus it would need a lot of standardization to prevent students from picking up bad habits from CFIs.
  14. Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Better download it before AFGSC/PA orders it taken down like the last B-1 deployment video.
