  1. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    And none of this is likely to fix the manning/MX issues they are experiencing at the B course? So all these quick turn studs would have nowhere to go anyway.
  2. T-38 Down @ DLF

    http://www.laughlin.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1379551/pilot-killed-in-t-38-crash-identified/ Names released.
  3. T-38 Down @ DLF

    Not yet.
  4. Unsat for SA. Thanks.
  5. One of those U-28s was on the T-1 side. And the other T-38 stud got a F-15E.
  6. Not sure, it certainly surprised us when we heard about it.
  7. There was an offer at DLF of a spot to go fly Growlers to post-IFF dudes who were heading to the Viper. 3 year gig.
  8. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    Probably a safe bet. We went through at least 6-9 attempts for approval of ours. Would hate to offend anyone...or reference hooking rides. That never happens in UPT...
  9. Definitely glad to hear that FAIP doesn't make it impossible to go to Weapons School. A number of people had mentioned it is much more difficult being 4 years 'behind' as far as time in your MWS goes, is this true?
  10. Getting FAIP'd in general apparently closes a few doors (Weapons School for example, or at least makes it more difficult), but it seems most of the T-6 FAIP's who flew T-38s in UPT are heading to fighters now. As for T-38 vs T-6 FAIP, as with anything it is a bit of luck and timing as well. There could be a dude who would be a great FAIP, but there isn't a slot for T-38 PIT available to the Sq at the time, so they end up in the T-6 instead.
  11. XL 17-13 T-38 T-38 ADAIR 2 x F-16 B-1 T-6 FAIP T-1 2 x C-17 (Hickham/Charleston) AC-130W MC-130 T-1 FAIP T-6 FAIP C-130J Yokota HC-130 RC-135 I might have missed a few, but that it most of the AD drop.
  12. The three SUPT bases all drop on the same day for a given class to my knowledge. DLF does have a drop tonight.
  13. ATTACK....

    You seem to be neglecting the mentions of Heroism and Valor. Heroism: great bravery. Bravery: courageous behavior or character. Courage: the ability to do something that frightens one. Valor: great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle. If you are frightened, or believe you are in danger in your air conditioned GCS at 1G and 0 kts...well that just screams bravery.
