    T-38 Down @ DLF

    Fairly similar with the addition of upper leg straps and the arming lever. I’m not sure what the purpose of the lever is since the pins should be sufficient.

    T-38 Down @ DLF

    Really humble dude. He would study with us in the flight room after he got back from his deployment while we were still fairly new in 38s. I had a really good one-on-one convo with him during our naming ceremony that still sticks with me today. I saw him the day before at his spot in fam camp. Tough read I was putting off. To stuck 🍺
  3. RUMINT says RPA drops returning... not even the “fun” one.
  4. 69 aspect is 69 aspect. Most of the principles remain intact.
  5. They’re dropping from T-1s primarily. As a T-38 student now in JSTARS, I can tell you almost none of the 38 syllabus carries over into this airframe. They don’t even let us talk on the radio while “monitoring the autopilot” 🙄
  6. FY18 is a new animal. We have 3/7 going to ACC heavies. They told us 1-2 fighter and no AMC

    Future of E-8 JSTARS?

    GA Congress folk pretty much stopped fighting for recap since ABMS will be in their state. From COMACC, 2 to the boneyard FY19, then 1 a year until the last two FYs when it’ll be 2/year. That was a few months ago, but still sounds like it’s the plan.
  8. As far as I know. I know a few IFF washouts that went to AMC heavies. We were told it was to alleviate the bottleneck at the fighter FTUs. We were told not to expect AMC, only ACC heavies or AFSOC for the FY18 drops. The first few classes felt it the hardest and it’s been a sprinkling here and here the entire year so far. RUMINT machine said to not expect AMC since they’re more reluctant to send their 38-trained dudes back to AETC.
  9. It’s possible, but probably not. There have been an uptick of 38 studs to ACC heavies. Why do you ask?

    Kadena F-15 Crash

    https://popularmilitary.com/air-force-f-15c-crashes-off-coast-okinawa-pilot-rescued-serious-condition/ “We have been notified that the pilot is in serious condition.” “Kadena has temporarily paused F-15 training while the 18th Wing reviews “operational, maintenance and safety procedures with unit personnel.””

    What is right with the Air Force

    New guys/gals may not be directly affected by it, but they see what's happening. It's like cattle to the slaughterhouse. They don't know what it is yet, but they know they're gonna be in it soon; they've heard it's awesome! When they get there, they get put on the conveyor belt and see the ones before them entering the grinder. Just because it isn't happening to you or affecting you right now, doesn't mean it shouldn't concern you. I don't think any CGOC is going to save the AF. (Dramatic example? Yes.)

    Yeah, definitely not taking career advice from new LTs. The point I’m making is, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out everything isn’t hunky dory. It’s not the jaded FGOs that are poisoning the minds of the new studs. And I’ve been here for 12 years.

    What is right with the Air Force

    It's a little insulting assuming LTs would be completely ignorant to the writing on the wall. It doesn't take 6-9 years in and well-poisoning to arrive at the same conclusions. "LTs are too naive and ignorant to be critical; let's let them enjoy their blissful ignorance."
