    Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    I actually did do two years USNR. All valid points and hence why I’m now ANG.

    As a Hornet guy in the guard now, the USAF aus way more F’d up. The FNAEB process isn’t perfect, but it’s way more democratic/pragmatic. Just look at the outcome of the sky writers. You telling me the USAF would’ve ever let them keep their wings, let alone keep flying?

    Low transition = suck the gear up as early as possible, stay as low as possible on the deck while gaining all the knots you can, pull up at end of runway, look cool. Doesnt work if you yank the gear with minimal flying speed and settle back down onto the runway.

    Supposed known problem child trying to show off, settled onto the deck attempting a low tranny.

    Heard from a reliable source it went down as advertised, failed low transition. Jet may be a strike.

    Viper Mishap at Lake Havasu, AZ

    SFOs are fun. Spend a day at NFL and you’ll see at least a 100 being done.

    Then how’d he even sign for the jet?! I suspect the lack of use of his hand was the fear installed from SAPR training.

    This would be consistent with what everyone who saw it thought was a low transition gone wrong. Still hard to believe it couldn’t fly away on one, it was a cool day and DA shouldn’t have been a factor.

    Bout 2/3rds.

    Rumor true. Low tranny gone bad.

    NFL Ratings are Way Down

    Swipe my ass, that shit was funny.
  14. Pretty easy when it's 1s and 0s and the computer can see precise energy states at every given moment. Let's see your super bot do it in a real jet, in real 1v1. Show me that computer/camera/sensor setup go 1.0 Pk and I'll be impressed.
