  1. Seems plausible that they weren’t his. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. After the “OSI” / you can get crucified for lies discussion in here, check out the WTF in sq bar. Real interesting things could come from that suicide of OSI prosecuted him falsely as is being alluded to. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  4. There is about a zero to negative chance we sell F-35’s to an Arab AF. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. Damn, digging into his pranks 10+ yrs prior in Korea. Watch your ass people. In 2020 you are one misconstrued joke/prank/drunken misstep from making the AF times or SARC briefing. Not to say this guy doesn’t sound a bit odd but compared to the stuff I’ve seen in 18 yrs, this is nothing. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. ### year vacation!! You must not have gotten the memo about what the USAF has been like since 2001. Being in Europe just means you are closer to the desert. Not that there aren’t some good times to be had, but it’s not the Cold War era fun fest that I heard about growing up. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. Back in 2012ish, a bunch of 11F’s, mostly viper guys got F-Ed when their leadership tried to play with numbers thinking there was no way they’d get passed over, and favored the non-ops dudes with weak records. It backfired, the non-ops guys made Maj, the pilots didn’t. Weird shit happens. It’s not right but the statistical odds are that that won’t happen to most people in a normal tear. Your story sounds like something, somewhere at some level got F-ed up and maybe it was covered up and never explained to you. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. 16 yrs ago was a different AF. Hell ,5, 3, different AF. I hear we are looking at 90%+ to O-5 coming up. I’ve known multiple HPO’s would could have timed into 1-star jumping ship recently to airlines. What am I getting at? If you want to fly, do it. As long as you don’t have a DUI or UIF and have min-runned your square filling (SOS/ACSC), in today’s AF, you can fly and will probably promote. *some communities vary I was told multiple times that by choosing flying over career I’d never make O-5. Best choice I ever made was ignoring that advice and choosing what I liked doing. Even if I had been stuck at Maj for life, I’d still choose flying.

  10. Let me give you non-flying USAF life advice: Enjoy where you are at, pause, realize you are getting paid to do an awesome job while traveling the world. Surround yourself with good friends and have fun. You’ll only be young once. Don’t always look for the next thing thinking it’s better than now, especially if you think that your career or what you fly will determine your overall happiness. Advice I’d give 25yr old me now that I’m old with 3,500+ hrs spread across 4 jets and I realize some of my fondest USAF memories was flying the worst jet of my career in the worst location of my career with some of the greatest people I’ve met making the best of our circumstances.

  11. Guys, what makes a complex approach? Any good stories? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. Why? Not that I don’t believe you but I like to know why people think their leaders suck. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. Pyro was a class A dude who made the world a better place. Great attitude right up to the end. What many people don’t know is that he was given the 95% diagnosis of a few months to live almost 5 years ago. Fought like hell. I’ll fondly remember all the jack and cokes at the bar with him. Godspeed Pyro. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. It’s been a while so I’m not 100% sure but you should get orders from your current base to Fairchild with the TDY enroute annotated. I don’t think your family is included in the TDY unless specified so you’ll get generic BAH for them and TDY pay only for yourself at Altus. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. I’m talking 25% of support. Not ops people. I’ve deployed numerous times the last few years, I was appalled at the support-self-licking ice cream cone I saw. It’s bad at home station also when you pull the curtain back on some of the support agencies then look across the flight line at their peers in rank.
