  1. Killing Japanese didn't bother me very much at that time... I suppose if I had lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal.... Every soldier thinks something of the moral aspects of what he is doing. But all war is immoral and if you let that bother you, you're not a good soldier. There are no innocent civilians. It is their government and you are fighting a people, you are not trying to fight an armed force anymore. So it doesn't bother me so much to be killing the so-called innocent bystanders. Curtis Lemay
  2. Miss marked, that is for more cow bell sounder.
  3. Most of them ended their service lives as target drones at Tyndall.
  4. https://m.facebook.com/groups/2542821662?view=permalink&id=10157244247471663 I wonder if this happened with the boomers looking through VR goggles if the second delay would have ended in disaster.
  5. Working in the MRO world that had military contracts I'm surprised that DCMA is not getting the third set of eyes when ever a critical part was paneled up. I hear mechanics at Boeing use their own tools, I did to when working contracts but my toolbox had to have the same standards as your Crew Chiefs when you step to the jet, 100% accountability, inventory and shadowing. My supervisor and myself both signed off the inventory everyday. This sounds like that the penny counters program managers have thrown out quality, FOD free because that takes time and sacrificed it for roll times on time and delivery dates no matter what.
  6. I hope the the other 79 welcomed him home with a goblet of 1896 vintage Cognac.
  7. It sounds like a KC-135E that crashed on approach to Geilenkirchen, stab trim run away , left the rest of the remaining fleet looking for serviceable jackscrew units. 737 jurassics had a problem with its rudder going full deflection on approach causing a snap roll, later found that the power control unit fluid got so hot it caused it to lock up.
  8. Damn, and I was thinking of growing hemp instead of corn
  9. Lots of WW2 USAAF /RAF bomber crews who bailed out over Germany got the same treatment from the locals before the Luftwaffe got to them. Probably the same with Japan, fire bombing pisses people off.
  10. Those harvest falcons were bad enough. I'm waiting when they give female recruits buzz cuts and the same physical requirements before I call it gender neutral.
  11. Is it just a additional duty? Don't the mx guys belong to the Wings AMXS sq and report to that SQCC and does the pilot still attached to a flying Sq?
  12. With all the updates and the landing gear hydraulic system isn't one of them.
  13. Had to keep 2 KC-10's rapped up like that for months as we proofed the new RVSM upgrades. This what happens when finance guys design airplanes.
  14. Anything we do for the Kurds is predicated by what the Turks can stomach. Even though they run northern Iraq more or less with anatomy the Turks always will be a threat to them and visa versa. During the Provide Comfort days we would have to abort our operations whenever Turkey turned off the JTIDS link. At what lengths did Mattis want to protect the Kurds, lock horns with the Turks and push Erdogen into the Russian camp?
