    The Kuznetsov I guess we still think them a threat even when it was in the Med it had to be accompanied by a sea going tug. It's class A mishap rate was high doing ops over Syria

    Hell, I say reopen K.I. Sawyer in the upper peninsula of Michigan, turn and burn over Lake Superior. Learn to love snow and cold weather OP's. Or any other northern tier old remote SAC base.

    To Monday morning QB leaving F-22s behind. First you would need to know how many parts were stripped off these jets so the others could leave. Maybe they had to strip them down to fill up spares kits that were flying to Wright Patterson. When did all mx stop, the Wing CC ordered a mandatory evac? I'm sure ACC gave them OK to leave them, knowing there was not enough time to cann parts from Langley jets to get them to at least NMCA status for 1 time flights to a mx facility. Having driven to Mexico Beach from OKC for my last beach vacation last June I remember thinking it must be a bitch to get out of here in a mass evac, So families and troops not accompanying the fleet had to be given days notice to get out of Dodge. Now we have a F-22 wing that is homeless, it has to start flying soon to keep up on pilot quals. Most of its support equipment is FUBARd since the AGE stuff you use on F-15's and F-16's will not work on a F-22. I'm sure Dayton Ohio is not a ideal location to run fighter ops,nice museum though. I do not foresee Tyndall closing since it has the QF-16 drone mission and everybody and our allies use it to to do live fire training over the gulf.

    Wow! No wonder he was so motivated to overcome injuries, I bet when he had a chance to be coherent to know how damaged he was he did a package check.

    IMHO I will give a enlisted POV. Lets say you have a 15 year TIS MSgt who is the go to guy for whatever Sq he is in, for the sake of argument a Aircraft MX Sq since that is my background. He is great at making sure today's schedule has jets to full fill the contracted request from Ops. Deploys more than his fair share and works the crummy shift . His troops are trained and ready. Now this same NCO gets called into the E-9's office to discuss his future, gets berated for not taking part in the Top 4 activities, not being at the last 4 years Xmas parties (deployed), no bake sales, and only going to PME graduations if he has a troop graduating. No Senior Rater endorsement for you. You leave the office thinking that guy is a douche bag and why the hell would I ever want to be a Chief. Then your thinking its going to be a long 5 years . Now the USAF has this option of the WO program, its a no brainer.

    NFL Ratings are Way Down

    I believe that my generation ,born 1963, are no longer enamored by the current generation of players. Maybe its because of today's social media and 24 hr news cycle, a player gets caught beating up his wife or committing a felony makes it hard to root for these guys on Sunday. For every Tim Tebow there are 20 Ray Carruths, the guy who murdered his pregnant girlfriend. Still love to watch the High Schools and college which still plays the game at its purest level. My favorite players were guys like Walter Payton, who even though played on some horrible teams they still gave us 100%. Todays generation grew up with much more choices for their entertainment money and time. The NFL will not close up shop but they have to think about the players, ask yourself would you want these guys living next door to you.
  11. I don't think TSA ever caught one terrorist and also their agents have been accused of over 400 counts of petty theft. But on the other hand they do catch a bunch of dumb asses trying to bring stuff on a jet that has no business on a jet. https://www.tsa.gov/blog/2016/01/21/tsa-2015-year-review

    Whatever happened to the ideal giving pilots the choice of staying in the cockpit or going command track?

    Future of E-8 JSTARS?

    707's are getting real hard to find parts for which the E-8 is, most of its parts especially engines and hydraulics are not compatible with the E-3 or E-6 jets. No a KC-135 is not the same. The only other fliers are Qtanker and the Iranians.
