  1. Wing Re-Org Test

    "AMU realigned under FS and MOF under OSS"... that sounds suspiciously like Mx is under Ops again...isn't that the seventh sign of the Apocalypse??
  2. B-21 Raider

    Thought I read somewhere they're going to keep the existing bomber base infrastructure, i.e. Dyess, Whiteman and Ellsworth all get B-21s. Assuming 100 jets, and the existing number of operational B-1 and B-2 squadrons, 12-14 tails per squadron, plus the FTU, it seems to make sense to keep all three bases.
  3. Apparently, we're all pretty stupid,...

    I think what pisses me off even more than his blatant veteran bashing is that his tirade appeared to be directed at, or because of, a student wearing a Marines sweatshirt. Ya know, if you want to come at me with your stupidity, fine, I'll stand toe to toe and argue your points down until I'm blue in the face. But seriously, what kind of low life piece of shit browbeats a student?
  4. Safety School (Albuquerque, AMIC)

    The real question is....why are 365s still necessary?
  5. Apparently, we're all pretty stupid,...

    He hate us cause he ain't us...
  6. Same. Ordered two new ones, and both started unraveling with hardly any wear and within a month or two of having them.
  7. The list still has to go through all the wickets. SecDef office, Congress, etc.
  8. B-1 (Bone) questions

    I know the Bone's radar is far and away better than ours and fulfills much the same function as this would, but I wish they'd hang a Dragon Eye pod on the left pylon, keep Sniper/Litening on the right and give us another MFCD so we could dual wield sensors.
  9. B-1 (Bone) questions

    The Buff is currently fielding Litening Gen 4. Not sure what the Bone's future pod plan is.
  10. B-1 (Bone) questions

    Not so. I think the one YoungnDumb is talking about was the first, but definitely not the only as of late. Our FTU SQ/CC made a trip to Columbus specifically to scope out the product coming out of the Tone side. Shortly thereafter, our FTU inbound roster (at least before I deployed) had T-1 FAIPs and studs listed as coming to us for upcoming classes. I can't say with certainty whether this is happening for the Bone or not, but I had heard rumblings at one point not too long ago.
  11. B-1 (Bone) questions

    It's starting to happen, yes. Both Buffs and Bones are dropping to the T-1 side.
  12. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    This was home station. There are other tales worthy of "Leadership at the Deid" that I will share upon my parole...
  13. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Here's one more papercut from my little corner of the AF...we got an email the other day that our squadron was required to offer up a body to be a green dot facilitator. We're trying to keep up with our flying mission with our manning well below 100% (just like, I'm sure, everybody else) and now we're mandated to have someone take (more) time out of their schedule to go deal with the Green Dot bullshittery....UFB. I kinda thought the point of the people that facilitate that program was that they actually had some buy-in or personal experience to share....now it's just another onerous ancillary duty and yet another straw crushing the air power camel.
  14. As a Buff dude, I've seen many of our guys going to Dave for their nametags, and his stuff is the shit. Just as good if not better than Mardon, and certainly no two month turnaround ...try two days, if that. Wearing one right now, in fact! Highly recommended.
  15. CSO drop nights

    Same in the Buff. We've had guys who were #1 in their class during the EW phase get WSO slots. Point being, be the best you can be (without screwing your bros!) and you'll be in a better position to get what you want.
