  1. Allegedly it was traded the day of the Sheppard drop, from Sheppard. We had very, very strong "evidence" that we were gonna have the Growler.
  2. There was a 38 AC-130 as well

  4. Dream Sheet Advice

    Thanks for the input guys, it truly is helpful, I turned it in yesterday and I'm feeling pretty good about the order. I appreciate that there's dudes out there willing to offer some wisdom to us ignorant young folk. At this point I'm very excited to see what comes next and I'll be sure to throw it in the assignment thread when 26 Jan rolls around!
  5. Dream Sheet Advice

    Hello folks, I'm a T-38 stud and my dream sheet is due next Friday. I wanted to ask for advice from some of the seasoned dudes around here who have experience doing the mission and know the ins and outs of combat aviation and what it really means to be an operational fighter pilot. There are a few things I know with absolute clarity: 1) I want to be a fighter pilot, period, dot , the end. 2) I want to have a kinetic impact on whoever it is we fight, i.e. rain hate on bad guys. 3) There is an incredible amount that I don't know that I don't know. Given those conditions, I want to ask the question, if you had to go back and talk to your ~24 yr old self about to fill out your dream sheet, what advice would you offer to best accomplish those goals knowing what you know now about the reality of fighter aviation. Thank you for helping out in advance!
  6. The Shep C-17 was by request, however the 130J wasn't. Everyone is most excited about the return of the Viper!
  7. Only things missing are: Canadian CF-18 x 2 Italian Tornado x 1
  8. EN 18-02 drops on 1 December
  9. EN 18-01 Active F-22 x 1 F-35 x 1 F-15C x 1 F-15E x 2 A-10 x 1 B-52 x 2 C-146 x 2 RC-135 x 1 E-8 x 1 Guard/Reserve F-16 x 1 Foreign Danish F-16 x 2 German Tornado x 1 German T-38 FAIP x 2 German Eurofighter x 1 Belgian F-16 x 1 Belgian NH-90 x 1
  10. EN 18-01 drops tomorrow and had to put the growler on their dreamsheets. Today they were called in by the SNR and told to not expect great things at their drop. They had to reorganize their dreamsheets with emphasis on non-fighter options.
  11. EN 17-08 Active F-35A x 2 F-15E x 2 A-10C x 1 F-15C x 1 T-38C FAIP x 1 B-52 x 2 B-1B x 1 Guard/Reserve A-10C x 1 F-22A x 1 Foreign Danish F-16 x 3 Norwegian F-16 x 5 Italian Tornado x 1
  12. One of them was my flt cc at usafa for a short time. He said they Q3'd the crew and they moved out of the 17. That was his last assignment before getting out and he now flys for the airlines.
  13. This is still the case unfortunately, there have been at least 3 instances in FY 17 drops here at Sheppard so far. In one case the student wanted the C-17 but was so low in the class the three C-17s available were already taken and the stud ended up getting a Viper because that's all that was left...
