  1. What’s sad is that it’s still an accusation and he was fired over that (if that is what it was for). I had a buddy who was named the Wing CC at a UPT base and when he was enroute, he was also accused. He was then promptly told not to report and he would no longer be the Wing CC and was turned back around to DC. Fast forward and he was found not guilty and the accuser was then charged for filing a false report. Career ruined, accusation followed him even though it was a false accusation, he promptly retires. I really wish they would keep their positions an
  2. I’ve been thinking about getting a Tesla but you can’t beat good old American horsepower!!
  3. Still no mention on any channel but Fox News... https://www.foxnews.com/media/abc-cbs-nbc-andrew-cuomo-lindsey-boylan-sexual-harassment
  4. Because the news of Cruz going to Mexico covers up the Cuomo COVID nursing home fiasco in NYC on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, etc... As long as they keep talking about how bad Cruz and the GOP are, most people who really don’t follow current events will forget about Cuomo.
  5. We had a guy in my TFI squadron that would preach about the BT-67 any chance he got and he did so much that we thought he had a job lined up with them after retirement (he did and is now BD for them). The more I look at the BT-67 though and how it can be modified to conduct all aspects of what is needed in a place like Africa (airdrop, mobility, MEDEVAC, HA/DR, ISR, Strike) and what it has to offer (long loiter time, long range, unprepared surface ops), this could be a great aircraft to our PNs. https://www.baslerturbo.com/
  6. I really don’t think an AC-208 can replace the U-28. That’s like trading out a Ferrari for a Miata and saying they’re similar. https://www.defenseone.com/business/2021/02/new-plane-key-special-ops-vision-africa-general-says/172092/ The AC-208 is a great low cost ISR/Strike aircraft for third world countries but the US needs better for the ground troops.
  7. The AT-802U is good at what it’s intended for but I’ll argue that the IOMAX Archangel is better for multiple reasons. Both though have pros and cons and the cons outweigh the pros for the USAF compared to the AT-6C and A-29C. Pros: lower cost, long loiter time, weapons and payload Cons: slow airspeed, non-pressurized, low cockpit visibility, non-ejection seat https://iomax.net/archangel/ I like the Paramount Group Bronco II. Biggest problems though is that it’s not FAA certified and there’s no US based projection line yet. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zo
  8. People laugh but I would love to see a split ticket as the third party in the next POTUS election. Tulsi (D) with Crenshaw (R) or Haley (R) for example. Completely bi-partisan and able to pull the more independent and centrist votes away from the two major parties.
  9. Hurlburt has AFRC personnel at the AOC. I’m not sure if they’re 13O career field though. The one person I know who is a Reservist there is a 11F.
  10. I would never trade being a pilot for cyber but yes, his locations definitely beat my Pope, Vance, Whiteman, Osan, & Columbus! I would say my locations are still better than Cannon, Holloman, Minot, & Laughlin. But that’s my opinion...
  11. Don't think the retired rank really matters until O-6, and only if you want to be treated as a DV in retirement (get that sweet DV suite at the AF Inns) Or that sweet parking spot in front of the BX, Commissary and Club...
  12. 2 - highly recommend! Get the suit special from Mr. Tony’s!!
  13. Sweetness gave me my initial A-10 MR check in 2003 with the 74FS World Famous Flying Tigers at Pope. One week later I was flying in OIF. Great guy!!
  14. The real reason behind storming the Capital...
  15. First 8x initial cadre hours are programmed via the contracted syllabi and that’ll be the first 18 months of flying. After the initial cadre, nothing planned yet but those hours are being planned in the FY23 FYDP. PM me your address...
  16. Doing good. Taken a little longer than planned but they’re now on schedule. The planes will be arriving at end of this year and the CAAs will start flying them in Jan 2022.
  17. I wasn’t allowed to say anything until today, but it's now okay for me to share that I have volunteered for the Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer. The vaccine is the one that has been developed in Russia. It is in 6 different stages and I received my first dose this morning at 06:20 am, and I wanted to let you all know that it is safe and I’m ok, with иo side effects whatsoeveя, and that I feelshκι я чувю себя немного стрно и я думю, что вытл осные уши. чувству себя немго страо. Comrade!
  18. Let the pardons begin! https://www.militarytimes.com/news/pentagon-congress/2020/11/25/trump-pardons-former-national-security-adviser-michael-flynn/
  19. CC directed Q3’s are better than an FEB and losing your wings... You are correct though, sucks that 2-4 received anything at all considering they were following 1.
  20. Nothing beats this flyover. Too bad the flight lead took the hit so that the rest of the formation was spared...
  21. You mean Sewer City?!? (I was born and raised just south of there). I used to ride a 03 Fatboy and now have a 15 Road Glide. Highly recommend Sturgis (Buffalo Chip, Needles, Spearfish, Deadwood). Dragons Tail is an awesome ride. I’ve heard Laconia is an awesome event also. Myrtle Beach and Daytona kind of suck (too spread out with no real riding because all the riding is bumper to bumper).
