    Is the KC-10 going to be cut?

    At least we stay in the right country.

    RFI on aircraft systems

    KC-135R Flight controls: Mechanical other than the hydraulically assisted rudder which was added on from the original design Engine/hydro out: Almost as boring as a B-52 engine out/ hydro is just a luxury item Engine out characteristics/landing: Lots of extra thrust/ might need a longer runway for multiple engine out and no hydraulics Other: They stole our parachutes Historical risks: Low, lots of emergencies but the jet was built to be very simple so it does a good job of getting home

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    This is a god damn waste of money for no reason. Make the shoes wear blues and let us keep our bags.
  6. Is this the talk of every squadron around the AF right now? Because it seems like everyone is talking about it where I am at. The dudes that were on the fence about staying in for a staff job are pretty much saying screw this because it forces them to just about 20 years (if they return to flying) with all the new changes.
  7. This and manpower numbers will look better if there are less people in Requal training and more staying qual’d in their current job for longer periods.

  13. http://static.e-publishing.af.mil/production/1/af_a1/publication/afi36-2107/afi36-2107.pdf So I've heard that as long as you are under your UPT ADSC then it is only a 2 year PCS commitment. What do you mean that it needs to be waived? Anyone have first hand experience?

    Someone just posted to TPN that JetBlue is giving out free airfare to military members wanting to travel to PR for the service.
