  1. Considering how great movie making has become in recent years, I am damn excited to see that movie. Navy jokes aside, Top Gun is the movie I grew up watching every single day, and I can’t wait to see the new one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. You will receive an email with tentative approval notification. The best thing you can do to expedite final approval (which will allow you to work on your DD-214 and separation orders) is to make sure your guard/res unit has your endorsed 1288 ready to go. Your ISR will have to send that to AFPC to prove you have a job lined up, then they will push the button for final approval. Also, make sure you’ve done your separation medical appointment and TAPS since those can take a while. Otherwise you can get separation orders expedited (mine took 2 days) once you have final approval and out-process in less than a week. Have a plan for moving your crap, I wound up doing a full DITY since TMO was so delayed. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. True, a wing can stall at any airspeed or attitude. I also am a public school product and just a dumb pilot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. So every time you roll your Viper to 85 degrees of bank, it’s stalled? I’ve only ever been to 90 in the C-17 in the sim, we got no stall indications because we were clean and fast, just like the jet in the video. Not sure where you’re making the assumption they stalled the jet... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This aircraft is clean wing and going over 300 knots (usually 310 ground planned) entering the low level. There’s not much to compare this to Elmendorf. All I’ve heard the past year and a half is how we need to get out of the strat airlift mindset, be more tactical, full spectrum readiness, blah blah blah. When you ask guys to train to that, this is going to happen. In the ACC world we debrief safety of flight and training rule violations after every training sortie. Do we go asking for people’s wings every time they fess up to a violation? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Wait...they stowed away trafficked children in your POD?? Sorry, trying to lighten the mood. Looks like you guys had fun transferring all of your crap into a moving truck. Did they at least give you a discount on the rate since they didn’t uphold their end? We’re in the middle of a full PPM/DITY with 16k pounds of stuff. Not fun. In case people were wondering, UPack is a rip-off. I got a quote for 36’ of trailer space, then when I went to book it the price jumped 40%, and they said Old Dominion had to provide the trailers. The problem is, OD doesn’t provide weight tickets anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The stabilized approach criteria that will soon be added to their Vol 3 just writes itself... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I can’t say enough about Trident Home Loans and how great it was to work with Jon and Bri (I even got a call from Marty at one point). Planning a separation with the wife and I both starting new jobs in another state, and shopping for our forever home can be quite stressful. I can say that starting with the pre-approval process, Jon and Bri made the mortgage process the easiest part of our separation/relocation. When we made a trip for house hunting, a quick phone call and we had our pre-approval letter to submit with our offer. Once we had a closing date, we got locked into a great rate. Closing was quick and painless and we just had to provide the usual documentation. We are still out of state, so they coordinated a mobile notary to complete our signing. The best part is that we wound up with more credits than expected, so we received a larger check back from closing. If you’re shopping for a mortgage, definitely check out Trident Home Loans!

  9. You can’t really compare the two situations. Back in the 1980s, Iran and Iraq were in the middle of a bloody war and Iran was targeting the ships transporting Iraqi oil. Attacks on shipping during a time of no open hostilities takes it to another level. I’m not really sure what in the hell the Iranians are thinking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Anyone have any experience doing a DITY/PPM but using the payment to book a full service move? We aren’t looking to make money, but separation orders took until just a few weeks before I start terminal and TMO is saying it may be a month before movers can pick up our stuff. Since we have a lot of crap, and heavy crap at that, the PPM estimator says we should receive $12k-$14k to do it ourselves (15,000 lbs, 1650 miles). I’d think you could find a mover for that, but I requested quotes and these guys are like leaches. My phone has been blowing up all afternoon. Mayflower? Allied? Any recommendations?

  11. Thanks for proving his point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I had no idea I was supposed to own one until I perused the new 2903 a few weeks ago. I’m sure it’s always said that, but it came as a surprise to me. Still don’t own one... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I called the Total Force Service Center any time it sat somewhere longer than 10 days and they would open a CMS case. My ISR freaked out a bit when I told him I had already started out-processing, then he called a contact at AFPC to try to nudge it along. There’s no reason why it should take any longer than 2 months if it isn’t even going to SAF. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say I sure wish even half this level of scrutiny would have been levied on the previous President when he was candidate and then during 8 years in office. Bill Ayers, IRS targeting, Fast and Furious, pallets of cash sent to Iran, Hillary selling uranium, unconstitutional Obamacare changes, etc etc. Those are just a few off the top of my head. The disparity is disgusting and it should enrage any American citizen. I’m all for holding leadership accountable, but accountability should be equitable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Most of us grew up wanting to fly fighters. As with most things in the Air Force, it’s about luck and timing. When I went through UPT, they were giving out 2 T-38s per class and of those most got NSAs, U-28s, or RPAs. Hardly anybody actually dropped a fighter and a lot of people chose T-1s because of it. If I had been more educated about guard/reserve back then, I probably would have applied to a lot of different units both fighters and heavies. The plus is you can control your path more. But don’t think just because dudes are leaving in droves and you might score a fighter (if a unit is dumb enough to hire you) that you are more talented than most of the guys my age.
