    Airlift stops

    There was a period of time in the 80s where you were paid the full per diem no matter what you spent. One example I remember was New Orleans, 87ish I think. Per Diem was $75 a day. Stayed at the west bank sheraton and with the military discount and sharing a room it was $12 a night. Big bucks for a SSgt back then.
  2. The first article I read quoted a USCIS spokesperson, Their version of AF Public affairs.
  3. Yes you can. https://www.jacksonvillecriminallawyerblog.com/in_florida_you_can_get_a_dui_f/
  4. "Innocent until accused" (quoted from here) is standard.
  5. "The commandant has reviewed the information provided by local law enforcement officials" Yep, because they always tell the truth. What are the chances, if he's found not guilty, that he'll be reinstated?
  6. She aint got near the ass Kelly had back in the day. You could crack an egg on Kellys butt back then.
  7. The big question is...... Who's going to replace Charlie?

    Remote to Korea

    People taking their wives over there is what ruined that place.
  9. Quoted from Facebook "It looks like if you rub it for a few minutes the plane will start shaking violently and dump fuel everywhere."

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Funny story that wasn't funny at the time. We were flying the mighty whistlin shithouse (AC-130H) out of Guam practicing for the Iran hostage rescue. Our live fire range was basically a big rock sticking up out of the water somewhere near Guam. We were shooting our regular 20mm HEI rounds down at 2500ft. Bomb dump says they have a "shitload" of tracers they need to get rid of and ask if we can shoot it. We said sure, link it up, a mixture of tracer and HEI. So we are over this rock at 2500ft and the pilot lets loose with the first burst of the tweak, immediately followed by "CEASE FIRE, CEASE FIRE!!!!. Tracers were ricocheting back toward the airplane, some of them went past us.
  11. Trying to start one at Cannon. I guess we'll see how it goes.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    I didn't read the article, just remember the picture. Happens more often than you think. The 141 could hold about 155,000 pounds of fuel, wish I could remember more important shit than that.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    If I remember right, that was a fuel tank vent that was left capped.
  14. Well jeeze, they had 24 wheels down. Easy to lose count.

    KC-46A Info

    That "dual role" thing was a carrot that was hung out in front of the MC-W guys to try and ease them into the fact that the airplane was going to be an AC-W. Like the fabled frog in a pot story.
