    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Once again, there's a DuffleBlog article for that ‘We’re making real progress,’ say last 17 commanders in Afghanistan https://www.duffelblog.com/2017/02/were-making-real-progress-say-last-17-commanders-in-afghanistan/

    History Friday

    "Jul. 4 1989 was a hell of an Independence Day for the 32nd TFS (Tactical Fighter Squadron) “Wolfhounds”, a unit of the USAFE based at Soesterberg AB (Air Base), in Netherlands. In fact when Captains J.D. “JD” Martin and Bill “Turf” Murphy were scrambled with their F-15C Eagle fighter jets, they could not imagine that their mission was to intercept a very strange MiG." With audio from the F-15s https://theaviationist.com/2012/10/03/mig23-belgium/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1989_Belgian_MiG-23_crash

    Leadership at the 'Deid

    The internet is free at the Deid and it's fast enough for Netflix, skype, phone calls etc. There are pay options too if you want faster stuff.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    From what I saw at the wing, half the people sent to white jets where fine pilots. The other half were the people that get passed around from base to base so that they're someone else's problem. Just the type we want teaching new guys!

    Go talk to an FTU IP and see what they say about the products coming from UPT. There are guys that can't fly an ILS or hold altitude. Talking on the radio seems to be a foreign concept as well.v

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Tacking on stripes is now considered hazing, even pretending to do so. Para 3.5 http://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodi/102003.pdf

    Might be some interesting opportunities for 11Rs. Or not, the AF will probably screw that up.

    Herk Down

    There is an abbreviated report out on AFSAS. Recommend reading for -130 guys.

    Raise Taxes, Fire up the Draft.

    There's some pretty good arguments against the draft/conscription out there. Comparing it to Japanese internment is definitely not one of them.

    Good military/aviation books

    Little Toy Dog - Written by the two survivors of the RB-47 shootdown. Fulcrum - Soviet MiG pilot who stole a jet and defected. First Light - WWII Spitfire pilot.

    MARSRADIO (ex - MARS Phone Patch Net)

    This info is now in the FIH as well. It's in the last part of the 'B' section. Almost always instant replies to HF radio checks whereas Mainsail on the Global side will never answer you.

    New guys take note. This is how you tell a story.
