  1. I bet there is a C-5 facebook group with old timers in it.
  2. I heard they started doing this again to Eglin recently. The 46 should be getting approval to refuel 16s and 35s soon so hopefully there will be more AETC business efforts.
  3. You're right, landing (on the right runway) with two out of the 3 gear is a win in the 17 community.
  4. Yes, random AR can be approved by center. As far as AR off of published tracks in the NAS there are ways to coordinate with center to get approval for that kind of stuff. I'd recommend looking at the JO 7610.4 lots of good information, it is FOUO so you might have to go through your pubs shop or OGV to get it. If you are lazy and can settle for the 90% solution filing to a track/anchor and requesting random once joined up usually is no problem.
  5. They are cutting down how long SERE is now FYI.
  6. The 217 is gone, the AF is not teaching "max relax roll" any longer. At least we should not be teaching that. Kinda hard to stay on top of all of these pubs changes in the last year or two.

    That is why I thought there might be the possibility they would want more 10s. I was wondering if there have been other cases of boneyard jets being sold to defense contractors.

    What is the possibility that the govt would sell any of them to a commercial group(I.E. Omega)?
  9. From the wording of it (http://avherald.com/h?article=4c497c3c/0001&opt=0) it sounds like when he was guarding the speed brakes he might have bumped it (on the throttles).
  10. Does the NTSB post this anywhere else? Since they decided to remove youtube access on nipr.
  11. That place is a shithole, who gives a shit who controls that wretched place. Let's GTFO now.
  12. Slightly off topic question, are zaps still a thing? I feel like I don't see too many new ones around in the last few years.
