    Accepted a CSO slot

    News to me. I've known a couple of Navy pilot to AFRC pilot types, but that'd be a new one. You looking at active or Guard/Reserve?

    Upcoming Boards

    Par for the course for them. They seem unwilling to pursue age waivers.

    Which Tablet, Which Software - GA Flying

    Other thing to consider with FF. With one account you can have it loaded on three devices, so I have it on my phone as a backup in case my iPad overheats/breaks/runs out of battery.

    Which Tablet, Which Software - GA Flying

    I've used FF for years, and had an original Mini. FF was starting to max out the memory on that one, so I got a new Mini 4 and it works great. It's a great combo and I've never cared to try anything else.
  5. Pile on...every one of those six sorties will be 5 hours usually, often more. I got 450 my last deployment. My co was easily north of 500. Bomber perspective- we don't rage at 450 kts at a 100 ft AGL, but we kill our share of assholes. Few, if any, fighter guys can say they've dropped twenty-four JDAM in a single sortie.
  6. I know Barksdale has been getting a bunch, and it was much appreciated. They couldn't get any 12Bs to take the ART jobs because long ago, some genius decided to make all 11B slots GS-13s and 12Bs GS-12s, which was widely considered a slap in the face. Now that there are AGR slots aplenty, many more navs/EWs are taking the full time slots and fixing the manning shortfalls.

    AFPAK Hands- Opportunity Beckons

    Gotta hand it to the guy....to carry on that level of troll for so long....

    What is right with the Air Force

    Doubly hilarious when they're saying that to a squadron full of flyers.

    New AFPC commander a pilot

    2. Interacted with him when he was the wing king on Guam. This is a positive, in my book.

    Pilot retention in your neck of the woods?

    In Buff land, lots of guys leaving, including quite a few FTU IPs. Lots of our reserve pilots are getting picked up by the airlines and just doing the one weekend a month type thing.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    “Ok, crew mission briefing - uniform for the flight will be A2CU...” 🙄

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    At least in Buff land...many but not all.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    Just PCSd to a certain northern base with a huge amount of cops...why oh why is the patch setup on the OCP backward from the bag? I.e wing patch on the right shoulder and squadron on the left. Weird...

    C-47 Crash in Burnet, Texas

    Control locks left in maybe, or elevator jammed full up? Odd to see a DC-3 attempt a three point lift off like that.

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    If you want brain cancer, browse through 7BW PA’s FB reposting of this story. The mouth breathers were out in force in the comments section poopooing the AF for awarding the DFC to this crew. IMHO....well deserved for handling a dicey situation!
  16. I truly thoroughly despise the TSA....nothing but a goon squad and jobs program.

    Buffs - What can’t they do?

    That’s on its way, supposedly.
  18. Had a buddy just get picked up by Meridian, so they’re hiring.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    .......why......? I'd expect something like that from AD, but the reserves?

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Rumor says it was an FTU crew.

    Schoolhouse Happenings

    I flew on my "Down day"....go figure.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    I sure hope they don't go full retard and try and take the bags . We're also going to look retarded wearing coyote boots...
  23. Could be wrong, but I don't think the Naval Reserve direct commissions like AFRC or the ANG does. I think you have to be in, serve some AD time then move over.

    Change to Air Force Color Vision Policy

    Hallelujah...never thought I’d see this happen
