Guest C-21 Pilot

C-17 Airdrop Locations...

McChord (KTCM)

Charleston (KCHS)

Hickam (PHIK)

Elmendorf (PAED)

Altus (KLTS)....although this is the school house, they do participate in major exercises and have also "can" participate in wartime efforts if conditions exist.

McGuire, Dover, Jackson, Travis are all airland.

March is AFRC.

The KC-10s at McGuire and Travis are Reserve Associate wings. The aircraft are crewed and maintained by both AD and AFRC

Keesler will have a reverse-associate (active duty flying AFRC airplanes) C-130J squadron starting late spring, so might be something to add for the newbs to consider.

I'm sure there are other changes as well, but these are a few that I happened stumble across. On a related note, does anyone know how to get in touch with the person who runs wantscheck? I've used the "contact us" form, but gotten no reply, and the forum doesn't seem to work for me either - whenever I go to make a post, there is no text box to type into. I wouldn't much care, but I have a similar problem whenever I try to edit any unit's info - there is no "Save" button.... anyone know what the deal is? There are a bunch of units with outdated info that I'd like to update, but I can't.

Actually, it's the 199th FS. They're still flying the Eagle for a good while, though.

How about some numbers for the C-20/C-37/C-40?

I have no SA on those, so as soon as someone posts up their info, I'll add it.

The closest I could find was this presentation from June, which indicates Preds currently at Fargo, with Preds and Global Hawks planned for Grand Forks. It doesn't break it down by AD/ANG/USAFR

ACTIVE DUTY

F-15C - Kadena (Japan), Lakenheath (UK); Active force inventory: ?

ANG/AFRC bases and aircraft (ANG, AFRC)

F-15C: Great Falls MT, Portland OR, Klamath Falls OR, New Orleans LA, Jacksonville FL, Barnes MA

Serious question: So active-duty Eagle guys get one overseas ops assignment? So when they come back from Kadena/Lakenheath what happens to them? Get assigned to a guard unit, AETC, RPAs, MC-12, non-flying desk jobs?

So, I will go ahead and ask the dumb question, but I just want to have clarification:

Hypothetically, if I drop RC-135 and the only base that houses them is Offutt, my wife will be expected to always live at Offutt AFB?

You can homestead there for 8+ years if desired, you'll leave for a staff assignment eventually (could be at USSTRATCOM.) Once you make IP, the other bases (Kadena, Mildenhall, some other places) become options if you want to PCS there. But you will always go back to Offutt.

Mods can probably move this to the RC-135 thread.
