  1. Where is the bottleneck? IFF or FTU for the fighters or is this driven by a need for them in other places? Shocker they couldn't stand up Holloman F-16 capacity with all the 7 day opts.
  2. More SARC briefings soon.

    I could give 2 fvcks if a tranny showed up and did the job...problem is that people are trying to join the army/marines, drop the tranny card and they are ineligible to deploy while they "transition" and then after they got free treatment, they leave. Good for Trump. Time to end the social experimentation. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums

    They should not waste their time. More rockets instead. I bet it's a pod. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums

  7. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I grew up around generals who now long retired ask me why I'm not going hard towards command doing the schools and stuff to get there. I use stories like this to drive it home why being "king turd on shit island" isn't worth it. When I hear their stories of flying 10+ airframes amassing 8,000 hours when they were my age all while having beers at the club by 4pm each day I realize my USAF is nothing like theirs was. I read these airline lifestyle comments and I wonder how bad retention would be if Delta took out an ad in AF Times showing a pilot sitting at his pool with a Porsche in the driveway. I'm amazed retention is as good as it is personally. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums

  9. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    How far ahead does one bid their schedule? I.e. When do you know what the next month holds. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  10. Fighter Assignments page

    Stop, I'm having trip turn ptsd flashbacks. You must be bored in retirement or do you hang out at the BX in your spare time between funny posts on bodn. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  11. Fighter Assignments page

    Anyone heard about a new way to interact with assignments for fighter guys starting Spring VML? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  12. Anyone hear some MAF guys are cross flowing to the F-35? That's gotta be a morale booster for people hanging onto the hope. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  13. The best leadership for the Air Force is rooted in the pilot community....unfortunately "most" of the best pilot leaders are in the guard already or not on a path in the AD system to be in control. Sad fact, the system doesn't promote the best leaders into leadership...which is why you see the kid who got picked on his whole life until he figured out that he could join the USAF, fill some squares and be the mfwic. Most of the great pilots and bros I respected when I was a LT are gone...many of the ones I saw as ass-kissing careerist, risk adverse square fillers are now the decision makers you are blaming for the USAF woes. There are still some great ones though. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  14. This is like your friend getting dumped by the crazy chick who was cheating on him...in hindsight it'll be the best thing that could've happened. If he can't cut it in fighters then he'll go to a heavy anyhow. All the shit talking going on by fighter pilots making it "seem" undesired and rubbing off on uniformed naive students can only really be interpreted by fighter pilots who know what it's about...it still beats 96.69% of jobs out there.
