  4. https://breakingdefense.com/2019/09/house-members-seek-ndaa-language-to-force-light-attack-aircraft-buy/ “Phil Clay, a former Navy test pilot for the Imminent Fury/Combat Dragon close air support experiments, says the Air Force should purchase "at least a wing" (20 planes) of the Light-Attack Aircraft for SOCOM and the so-called foreign internal defense (FID) mission to combat insurgencies.” “the so-called foreign internal defense (FID) mission to combat insurgencies.” WTF...?!?

    Yes Was told that AFRC released too many pilots back to AD and now AFRC is having pilot manning issues. Therefore, don’t expect to be released to an AD flying billet. AFRC didn’t release a fully qual’d F-35 Traditional Reservist who applied to go back on AD to fly F-35s! AFRC sees their manning issues as being on the same level as AD (even though most are getting out and going from AD to AFRC and not the other way around).

    Be advised: AFRC is releasing new policy on the VLPAD and is getting very restrictive in regards to who is eligible or not. Was told that the only positions that will be released are those going to Command, Joint Staff or ROTC. Stand by for more information from AFRC.

  9. This also could go under the “What’s Wrong With the Air Force” thread considering LA was supposed to fall under the new Rapid Fielding Acquisition process... https://www-military-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.military.com/daily-news/2019/07/26/air-force-wants-more-money-light-attack-aircraft-effort.html/amp

    Latest Movies

    Just watched the Netflix Original “The Red Sea Diving Resort” about the true story of Israel’s Operation Brothers that occurred between 1979-1984 to save Ethiopian Jews. Very interesting story that I’ve never heard of.
