    Flight Lead
  1. Gun Talk

    I think we can get behind a man teaching his daughter how to shoot, especially with a well engineered firearm. Personally, the MP5K clone was just too iconic to pass up. Suppressed Z5P with the B&T style brace is the new range toy. :)
  2. Leadership at the 'Deid

    They actually did it? It was "two weeks out" eight months ago. I thought it died off.
  3. Well, the USMC uses MV-22s for TRAP...go ask the JPRC how that is going.
  4. It seems like this is one of those never-ending debates. There are pros and cons to each side, so CSAR keeps getting flipped between MAJCOMs. One the one hand, it seems like AFSOC wants the mission, but on the other hand, there is a suspicion that it really just wants more aircraft to use for whatever it wants. ACC seems to want the capability, but doesn't always seem to know how to make it work/care enough to make it work.
  5. RIP Doc

  6. More Uniform Changes!

    Yeah, if you've got the budget, Massif is about as close to magic as I've seen in clothing. Shell jacket that keeps you comfy from 55-15F...or -20 if you wear their base layers as well.
  7. Leadership at the 'Deid

    ...and mandatory brown t-shirts and Coyote boots. More stuff to buy for people. Those text job patches all got canned except for first responders, battlefield airmen...and one exception. (I wonder who wrote that...). Not that I care a ton, but wouldn't having people's jobs on their sleeves make things easier? Why are we restricting that?
  8. Flight Pay increases

    So, those looking at leaving get a 0.5% pay raise? Yeah, that'll make the difference. I won't say "no" to $50 more a month, but the AF is kidding themselves if they think that would sway people's decision.
  9. Professional pilot kill recreation?

    Mil flying has met my needs, so far. That said, if I don't get to fly on duty for a while, I definitely start to miss it. Sadly, helicopters are stupid expensive... I'm definitely thinking about saving up for an RV-7/8 in the future, though. The .gov won't pay me to fly forever.
  10. Multiple stories of that happening in Vietnam.
  11. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Was that to add to the point, or did you miss the pegged-out sarcasm meter?
  12. Well, there wasn't a lot of "wow" to it, IMO. They didn't even correct for inflation from the last time the bonus changed.
  13. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    We won't be operating in uncontested skies. The war in Iraq is over. Afghanistan is winding down. There are very few failed states anymore. Also glad we won that darn war on drugs a couple decades ago!
  14. Latest Movies

    Dunkirk is good. Character development and dialogue are pretty lacking, but the tension is amazingly well done. Definitely worth watching on a big screen.
