  1. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    When TACC confuses themselves with PIC, what do you expect?

  3. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    "3 greens" isn't part of the cruise level off check in a CRJ?
  4. Pope wing commander removed from duty

    Sort of. The school has to make up the difference between your retirement pay (not including VA disability) and your Active Duty pay. Most pay that plus a little more.
  5. Pope wing commander removed from duty

    JROTC=Getting paid the same as you did on active duty, usually with a kicker. And almost no accountability.
  6. I wonder if their office symbol is AFPC/COWDFTAFTMIC
  7. My guess is that they promote every single APZ and continued Captain that doesn't have derogatory information. Just as valid.
  8. Shadow Boxes

    I want my shadowbox to be the empty casing of a Mk82, cut in half lengthwise with a glass tabletop.
  9. What is right with the Air Force

    One of the best sq/cc's I ever had refused to use his parking spot. Our lot was too small for all the cars, and he'd frequently park in the alternate 'park and walk' lot because he didn't see himself as better than his Airmen. That said, rather than let a prime spot go unused, he shared it as an incentive. Superior performers id'd by him or the shirt would be given use of the spot for a month. It wasn't much, but it was tangible and valued by the people in the organization.
  10. RIP Doc

    To him. And prayers for his family. http://www.ktnv.com/news/one-dead-after-aircraft-crashes-during-training-mission https://www.youcaring.com/julieschultz-943161

    Like always, we started the season strong and then fell off. Of course, this time, the fall happened in the third quarter of the first game.

  13. I don't know if deployments or shift work after retirement are "where it's at" for me.
  14. This morning, I was reading an interesting Kellogg study on military service and its influence on CEOs (http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/faculty/benmelech/html/BenmelechPapers/MilitaryCEOs.pdf). As I start planning for my enroute descent to retirement (it's inevitable at some point), I'm wondering what experiences and advice the grey beards have for the transition. The airlines thread is awesome, but that's not the life for everyone. What other options are out there for a pilot with some staff stink, a TS, and an online MBA?
  15. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Another round from the USAFA glee club.
