  1. Damn. So very sad. Blue skies and tailwinds. 🍻
  2. The mighty MD-88 has speed cards in a holder on the dash. Flip to the one with your gross weight listed, fly the printed speeds. Like any true cave man. 😂
  3. This sucks on every level. If it can can happen to the most experienced B-17 pilot in the country, it can happen to you (or me). Stay safe out there fellas.
  4. Yup. Best trips ever. We’d work the schedule to have one crew fly the first week and the other fly the second, effectively giving you a week paid vacation. The diving is the best I’ve ever done. Amazing how one good-deal trip like that made up for a lot of time in the sandbox. Now almost all of the good deals are gone, including Curaçao.
  5. Alarming. He’s right on the money. 78 Suicides so far this year 😡
  6. There is a huge difference between “charged” and “convicted” of a DUI or anything else. Are you saying if someone was pulled over for DUI, went to jail for the night but was later acquitted for lack of evidence, faulty equipment or improper procedure, that you still consider it a crime? What about a pilot who does a flyby at 800’ instead of 1000’? He knowingly broke the “law”...so it’s a crime, not a mistake, right?
  7. You’re damn right they should be “reinstated”. They are innocent until proven guilty. That’s how it works around here. A “technicality” may be blind ass luck or a poorly trained officer or whatever, but if the proof of guilt doesn’t meet the standard of law...that person is innocent. Period. “For the law holds, that it is better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer.”
  8. The new norm these days...guilty until proven innocent. Total bullshit.
  9. So much WTF. How does one, “activate a Fun Run”???? Is there a big red button to activate it? Who gets to press the button?
  10. Not a B-2 guy, but if You never deploy and fly T-38s as a side chick...how bad can it be? Plus it’s fun to say you live in Knob Noster, MO. I imagine having B-2 time on your airline resume wouldn’t hurt either.
  11. Or better yet, when it happened!! According to her statement, he got his special general sauce on her yoga pants somehow. Guessing that would have been irrefutable evidence.
  12. See RSD’s reply above. i don’t believe everyone should get promoted just because they are a pilot, but it speaks volumes that pilots aren’t getting promoted at the highest rate if they so desperately need them, especially experienced pilots.
  13. Must be getting just run-down enough the Saudis need us to come in and fix it up again. 🙄 If we hadn’t bailed from PSAB, we wouldn’t have wasted another couple billion on infrastructure at Al Udeid.
