    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    .......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.

    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...
  5. 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

    C-130 down near Savannah, GA

    This. Not so much a problem on this board where the discourse is professional, but the keyboard warriors and flight sim super pilots Monday morning QBing on Facebook really pisses me off.

    GA Aircraft Flown

    Been flying a Piper Comanche 250 lately. A buddy I work with owns it, and generously added me to his insurance policy. Thing will scoot! Lots of room and I don’t think you could really get it out of CG if you tried.

    CSO drop nights

    Small class...
  10. If you don't mind me asking, with what unit? And how much time in service?

    Good military/aviation books

    Loved that one. Read it for a class in college. Very good!

    Good military/aviation books

    Not aviation related directly, but military...I'm on Vol II of Rick Atkinson's Liberation Trilogy about WWII in Europe. Volume 1 (An Army at Dawn) covers the North African Campaign, while Vol II (The Day of Battle) covers Sicily and the Italian campaign. Highly recommended for WWII history buffs.

    Leadership at the 'Deid

    Trend item out here- services and contracting are incompetent.

    Leadership at the 'Deid

    Pro tip- get a router and split one login. You can log on three devices at once and the router doesn't count against your total. Four dudes/dudettes can share the most expensive plan for $45 out of pocket each. Still a pain in the ass, but hey, fight the system however you can right?
  15. I did have a buddy get picked up by the March tanker unit at 34, with probably eight years on AD. So who knows? Ask! All they can do is tell you no.

    Leadership at the 'Deid

    EFSS is an absolute abortion out here. The lodging office has flat out refused to communicate or cooperate with the bomb squadron.
  17. I have never known a flyer to not have a TS.

    B-21 Raider

    As much as I love the Buff...I can't believe at some point we did not opt for relatively off the shelf modded out 757 or something similiar to be a cruise missile truck. The Navy kinda-sorta did it with turning a 737 into a P-8. Why not us?

    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??

    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.

    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?

    Safety School (Albuquerque, AMIC)

    The real question is....why are 365s still necessary?

    He hate us cause he ain't us...
  24. Same. Ordered two new ones, and both started unraveling with hardly any wear and within a month or two of having them.
  25. The list still has to go through all the wickets. SecDef office, Congress, etc.
