  1. Looks like textbook work by the crew. I haven't done phase sims yet this quarter, but I heard we are given this particular scenario. I don't have the checklist in front of me, but is opening the troop doors part of the landing with partial/all gear not extended checklists? If not, that's good thinking on this crew's part. I've heard that one of the first indications of the actual problem the Bagram accidental gear-up landing crew had was when the crew entry door didn't swing all the way down during the evac. Might just be an old rumor though.
  2. How else do you expect them to close their IFR flight plan from a farmer’s field?
  3. As a MAF dude on Active Duty, I had an experienced IP question me as to why I didn’t give him a Q-1E (commendables) on his mission check. I told him because it was a vanilla checkride on day with great weather and he did his JOB. Apparently being on the Wing CAG wasn’t going to be enough for his career. I think he works for Delta now. To answer your question - just take any commendables as a compliment. You weren’t EQ (don’t know if I’ve ever seen one), but you rocked some shit on the checkride... AND YOU PASSED.
  4. Where the fuck did you go wrong in your life?!
  5. Guys, guys, guys! This is not how online discourse between flyers is supposed to work! Not one of you used the term “libtard” or referenced the “orange man.” I think we should all take few minutes to peruse Airline Pilot Central (pick a thread, any thread), then come back here and discuss this topic like mature adults with internet anonymity.
  6. I'm triggered by the General's hairline. As an O-4, I find this offensive and indicative of my future (well, not the star).
  7. How unfortunate. You'll be missing out on so many extraordinary dining experiences! Eating Pick-Up Taco in my car while sobbing is how I got through the first 6 months after my PCS to that locale.
  8. Spawn, If I were you, I'd just keep riding it out at your regional until you get the offer from your company of choice. It's only a matter of waiting it out. I've given this same advice to the young guys in my Guard unit as well. Keep doing the mil flying, upgrade at your company then wait it out. If F9, B6 or NK (oh snap!) are your target, then absolutely apply. I would not make the move to any of those though simply to fly bigger metal. If AA, DL, UA, WN (shiiiiit) are what you're aiming for, then 121 PIC time at your regional will be your quickest path. Upgrading to AC/IP (if you aren't already) in your MWS is certainly advisable, but if you want to get to a major ASAP then I would argue your regional is the best bet. Good luck!
  9. This wouldn’t happen to be a “well-known” guy from the mobility community, would it? Either way, the efforts against the guy I am talking about were due to extreme douche-baggery outside of his AF career. That’s a clean kill when you fuck over a well-liked bro with a lot of friends at most (if not all) of the majors.


    Popcorn? I’m thinking a couple (three) glasses of scotch will be in order when this story is told. 🥃

    UFO thread

    I’m usually pretty skeptical about this stuff, but this guy’s story gave me chills driving to the airport this morning. Joe’s interview with Bob Lazaar from a few months ago is also very interesting.
  12. Whenever I hear this phase, I love to recount the DOZENS of times I’ve flown a completely empty C-17 across an ocean.
  13. That's called the Air National Guard.
  14. True. "Relatively" would have been a better choice of words. In any case, whoever crafted this idea is a complete assclown
  15. On the plus side, it should still be fairly cool outside at 0530, so you can leave your kids in the car until the scavenger hunt is over and the CDC opens.
  16. I'm banking on it! 🤞 I'll let you know how it turns out in a couple of years.
  17. Stand by for “back to basics” SII. It’s been at least 5 years since management last reminded us to do our fucking jobs.
  18. That’s known as “status quo” when dealing with TACC.
  19. My unit has been lining guys up on a downrange trip first, then they go down and sign the paperwork. It sounds like that was worked out well so far.
  20. I’m guessing there was a theme, but what a shitty choice of fonts. If one of the studs formatted these slides, he/she needs to just skip the FTU and go direct to a junior exec job in the ops squadron. He needs to learn what the AF truly values in its pilots.
