  1. And where the endearing term “Tanker T.O.A.D.” comes from.....Take Off And Die.
  2. How often are 135s offloading everything (or at least within a couple thousand pounds)? There still exists a mission that (in theory) requires offloading down to the standpipes.
  3. Your sarcasm detector CB may be popped.
  4. I won’t argue that the Iranians didn’t have this coming. They absolutely did. But this was an escalation that may have started (escalated?) yet another open ended conflict in the Middle East. Are we prepared for that? What’s the end game here? I really hope this was part of a well thought out plan that ends with the minimum amount of force/blood/treasure required to accomplish American goals in the region. I fear that in reality this was a rash reaction that will lead to further US entrenchment in the region with no clear idea of what a “victory” actually looks like. Incidentally, isn’t that exactly the sort of conflict that the administration says we should be pulling out of?

    Special effects/CGI needs some serious work.
  6. We may be able to take care of ourselves energy wise, but much of the rest of the world still relies on oil shipped through the straight. Now, you might say we live in ‘Murica, fuck the rest of those guys. But what do you think would happen here if the European, Japanese, South Korean, and especially the Chinese markets tank because the price of oil quadruples? Like it or not, we’re all tied together economically and “America First” shouldn’t translate to “America Only”.
  7. https://fox5sandiego.com/2019/05/16/watch-live-f-16-crashes-in-riverside-county/ Local news reporting pilot ejected. Hoping pilot and everybody on the ground is ok. Sounds like the jet went into a building north of the base. That is a pretty dense area.
  8. Just heard from a friend. Anyone confirm?
  9. These guys made a decision, formulated a plan, and executed with high efficiency and precision (aside from the slightly lopsided balls). I’d say the CVR evidence supports the fact that these two officers are highly effective military aviators and the skydick episode should be taught to every UPT student as an example of what to aspire to (might need a trigger warning for the weak kneed though). A toast to these goddamned American heroes! 🍺🍺🍺🍺
  10. You’d be surprised at how little aerodynamic/CG thought goes into load plans at freight operators. It’s usually based on what needs to come off the airplane first. I’ve seen some seriously eyebrow raising stab trim settings as a result. Never seen anything blatantly out of CG but fuel savings is pretty much a joke the way the airplanes are often loaded.
  11. 747 freighters have a main cargo door on the left side, aft of the wing. In my experience, nose loading/unloading was a rare event used mostly for outsized cargo. Might be more prevalent at different operators though.

    Just watched this and might need a little “me time” now. Some of the best air to air footage I’ve seen. The sound is great as well. I watched wearing a decent set of headphones and the Merlin/Griffon recordings made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Best thing I’ve watched in a while.
  13. Pencil method bros. Don’t forget to correct for winds. Also TIM. Forget TIM=clean kill.
  14. Instead of sir or ma’am, how about “batshit crazy motherfucker”? Direct, to the point, and totally gender neutral. I really don’t think this gu....ahem.....individual could argue with that description.
