    Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    Sounded to me more like a community wide issue based off the charts presented in P.16 of the AIB and end of the article. Not just one guy.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Better than "closed for training" all day long. Or how it seems every admin office decides they all need to take lunch at the same time rather than split it up because we couldn't actually be available to those they're supporting. That sounds like work.

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    3 more bite the dust. https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2018/10/31/three-commanders-fired-from-laughlin-flying-training-wing-for-failing-to-stop-misconduct/ Edit: Word from Laughlin is the wing cc, 47th ops group cc, 87th cc, and 87th do were all relieved. To be replaced with guys from other upt bases.

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    It's pretty quiet out there. The Laughlin T-1s use LBB for trans sorties if everywhere else is socked in and it's regularly used by T-1 nav sorties. I don't recall an overwhelming amount of commercial or civilian traffic, most of that is down in Midland. Not even sure how much the Lancer moas get used by the dyess folks.

    Future T-38 replacement?

    T6 is manually operated. I don't recall it being terribly difficult to open solo. The biggest PIA with it was the hooks not latching properly.
  6. To stay on topic here go to this thread and ask further questions there. Info about the UH-1 and 60s in there. It's a goldmine for upt studs, share it with your class.
  7. Will they also be replacing the birds at Rucker, Andrews, Yokota, etc? I was able to find this article but even that isn't super clear if it's all UH-1s and TH-1s, only the nuke ones, or some of this some of that.

    T-6 Air Force trainer crashes in Texas

    Update. “It appears the aircraft experienced engine failure on final approach at low altitude, configured for landing before our Airmen ejected,” Robinson said, speaking of the T-6 crash.

    T-6 Air Force trainer crashes in Texas

    Glad everyone made it out of this one ok. Those seats are once again proving to be worth every penny. Also found this on twitter.

    Well his machine gun was found... Do y'all see any realistic way in which he could have prevented this specific incident as a commander?
  14. Fairly certain that last C17 was JB Lewis-McChord not Charleston.
