  1. 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)?
  4. 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).
  5. Does the NTSB post this anywhere else? Since they decided to remove youtube access on nipr.
  6. That place is a shithole, who gives a shit who controls that wretched place. Let's GTFO now.
  7. 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.

  9. I think that might belong in the WTF thread.
  10. No U.S. carriers have furloughed any pilots yet.
  11. Just get your green boots that are super comfy dusty as shit and you should be good to go. I don't think i've seen two boots that look the same color yet.
  12. No need, those ROTC bubbas seem to just wear blues all the time. Save the cash and buy the cardigan.
  13. I heard a story about a dude/dudette that failed every checkride in UPT. (Obviously not the 89 rides.) Hopefully that is some motivation.
  14. The brits do have pockets in their flight suits at least
