    Hangar 24 AirFest '18

    Thought about it, but my boys’ (7 & 10) fun meters pegged around 430. Watched the viper demo from the parking lot as we were packing the car up. Maybe next year. 😎 Interesting tidbit: one of your performers this year (who is a co-worker of mine) happens to be a MiG killer. All in all it was a good atmosphere and much easier to get the wifey to come along willingly with live music and good booze on offer. This will definitely be an annual event I’ll try not to miss.

    Hangar 24 AirFest '18

    Great show. Brought the family up to Redlands today. Well organized, relatively easy to get in and out, musical and flying performances were great, and that announcer was okay too I guess. Recommend. First time to this show and will be back for future events.

    Emirates Short of Pilots

    This could be seen coming from a mile away. Expats have been leaving Emirates for the last few years as hiring in their home markets has picked back up. Why stay at a place with no union protections that forces pilots to BLOCK 100+hrs a month, and does not allow commuters? Like the USAF, Emirates management needs to be reminded that it’s no longer 2006.

    C-130 down near Savannah, GA

    Hard to watch that video. Just saw a report that there were 9 aboard and the airplane had undergone “routine” MX in Savanna. The plane appears intact throughout the video. Some sort of loss of control event obviously occurred. RIP to those aboard and thoughts and prayers to the families and unit members.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Although I encourage my mil friends to come over to the airline side every chance I get, I will not criticize them for deciding to stay in. I have a few good friends who are truly on the good guys’ side that are in their prime to make the jump to the airlines. And yet, despite the increase in pay and quality of life they have decided to stay. I had lunch with one of these guys a while back and he told me that he felt that he had a responsibility to stick around in order to provide the same mentorship to the young guys that he had experienced years ago. My hat is off to the guys who make that decision despite the continued sacrifice and the state of the USAF today. These men and women have far more patience than I do. Of course I’ve made sure they know that I will walk their resumes and rec letters into HR The moment they decide they’ve had enough.

    The new airline thread

    Anyone looking to game the system should do themselves and anyone looking to leave the military for airline flying a favor and forget trying that bullshit. You are literally screwing all your buddies down the line because the airline that you (perhaps legally) are taking advantage of is going to look at every potential mil new hire through the brown colored water that you just shit in. Additionally, mil guys already on the property who are doing their best to do things ethically are going to get caught up in the ball of dung that you just insisted on starting downhill. As if all of that isn’t enough, do not underestimate the fact that there are varying levels of animosity festering amongst your non mil co-workers. Don’t be the guy that confirms their suspicion that it’s your fault they’re sitting reserve over their kid’s birthday while you’re off doing whatever it is you do.

    Syria strikes underway

    While it is true that a precedent has been set over the past couple of decades regarding the President’s near limitless power to get us into conflicts, does that precedent make it ok? It seems that many people are opposed to this idea only when the “other” party holds the executive. Some of us have been opposed to this idea for the last three administrations.

    The Next President is...

    I don’t want my president making policy based on sound bites whether they come from Fox, CNN, MSNBC, RT, or the dark side of the fucking moon. There is evidence that suggests President Trump does exactly that with scary regularity. Militarizing the border is the latest example. The leader of the free world ought to be able to make well thought out policy de isions on his own, backed up by the expert opinions of a well vetted and highly qualified cabinet and corps of advisers. Sean Hannity and the gang at Fox and Friends don’t qualify in my book. I never argued any media source wasn’t biased. My argument is that the guy in the White House is, in the words of one of his recently departed experts, a fucking moron.

    The Next President is...

    Fox News says he’s tainted. The prez seems to think that anything that outlet says is gospel and appears to set national policy based on what he sees on that network. If it’s good enough for the president many Americans will assume it’s good enough for them. Sad....

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Is it considered a micro aggression or a macro aggression if I tell someone to grow a pair of goddamn balls. Probably highly offends the gender neutral sensibility as well. I vote Democrat lately and consider myself somewhat left of center. This is the kind of thing that gives liberals such a bad name amongst conservatives. These people need to understand how to be progressive without being such pussies about it.

    Good luck with that. Evergreen and North American are gone. Atlas and everyone else are busy with Amazon and their own stuff. Not exactly a lot of excess lift out there right now.

    I really don’t understand this concept in the first place. Let’s see if I have this straight.....The USAF is going to send a guy to the airline side to get training on an airframe they both operate. Presumably this will be on the 767 unless they are planning on sending new Lts straight into C-40s and C-32s, or unless United has some super secret F-16s on order. Once the guy has his type, he heads over to the AF side to complete his 10 year commitment. Now the airline gets him back with 10 years of seniority and likely has to re-train him in new equipment because they no longer operate the type he was on, or his seniority allows him to hold something else. What’s the upside for the airline? Think the union might want a say in this? This whole concept seems like a pipe dream dreamt up by some shoe clerk who literally has no fucking clue how airlines work. I imagine airline management laughed in the CSAF’s face when this was brought up in their little meeting a while back.
