In a gesture of goodwill, Southwest named a row of seats after her.

Been doing this long enough now to see the slide from something I dreamed of doing all my life to something that is absolutely unbearable at times.  Dad flew for 28 years before me and both of my gran

No dog in the fight.  But the 480FS Wikipedia page has an awesome “Woke era to present write up.” never seen that before must be a new AF Historian.

That is the Terre Haute, Indiana guard unit. 

Well damn.  All this time I thought it was the March guys.  I guess if I actually paid attention to the first 10" I would have figured it out.  Thanks.  

 

As for Guns, that was a shame.  He was on the fast-track to four stars.

I wonder if anything happened to the woman involved in this relationship? Sounds like she started it, pursued it, caused all the conduct that was prejudicial to good order and discipline, but he lost 2 stars and given paperwork and forced to retire. 
 

I’m sure I’m just a misogynist, but if she didn’t receive a similar punishment as an AF officer, that’s BS.

She's the subordinate.  Seems like the lines are pretty clear here.

It's a parody of the Cal Worthington used car commercials in the 1960's and 1970's in the Los Angeles area.  I lived in SoCal for 3 years as a kid, and those commercials were ubiquitous.  That video was from the old March AFB F-4 Guard unit, and they were right in the middle of "Worthington Country".  

Do a Youtube search, watch a "Cal Worthington and his dog Spot" commericial, and you'll see what I'm talking about.  After you watch a couple, you'll realize the pilot that did that parody was pretty spot on!  Here's one:  

What I never knew until about 10 years ago was that Cal Worthington was a B-17 pilot in WWII.  After the war, he wanted to be a professional pilot but couldn't make it happen.  

He died about 7 years ago in a town not far from Beale AFB.  He owned a gorgeous old Learjet, and when it was sold, I almost took a job flying it.  The inside had pretty much zero avionics upgrades but it was immaculate.  I saw it on the ramp at my local non-towered airport (KLHM) 3 months ago.

Cal was apparently quite a nice guy, and a great American.

He was in Washington State as well in the 80s. I remember his commercials well. When I was a kid, my dad actually bought a car from one of his dealerships. Cal actually happened to be on the property at the time and stopped by to shake hands after the deal was done. I remember being disappointed that he wasn’t nearly as animated in real life as he was in his commercials.

According to the article she sent that to him.

Huh, was different in another article I read.  Note to all here: make sure your side piece can keep her mouth shut -

The female officer told other staff at the Warfare Center, family members and a local friend about her relationship with Gersten, the report said, and later told the Office of Special Investigations about their relationship in detail.

Surprised she didn't put it on facebook at that rate.

Agreed, but she voluntarily played a role in the matter and should be held accountable just as he was...

She's out!

We’re pleased to confirm that the Chinook that became stuck in a field near Wantage last week has been lifted successfully and is now out of the mud. Our engineers are now checking the aircraft, and once safe to do so it will be flown home to RAF Benson.
 
Given the muddy conditions and freezing weather, it has been a challenging operation to free the Chinook, particularly as we needed to ensure we didn’t damage the aircraft in doing so. Specialist tri-Service teams, including the Joint Aircraft Recovery and Transportation Squadron and the Royal Engineers, were called in to assist the Chinook experts in devising a solution that would successfully free the aircraft. A number of options were considered and it was agreed that the best option would be to lift the aircraft onto a platform using cranes.

The specialist teams worked together to prepare the ground, including laying over 250 feet of suitable trackway for the heavy lifting equipment. Once the equipment arrived, it was a swift process to prepare the aircraft to be moved and it was then lifted by two cranes onto the waiting platform. Personnel have been on site since last Tuesday including RAF Reserves from 606 Squadron based at RAF Benson.

Once again, we extend our sincere thanks to the landowners who have been incredibly understanding throughout this process and the local community for their support.

Pretty clear guidelines about relationships with people in your rating chain. Otherwise, I typically don't care. I don't even care he was married. They were separated and divorce was imminent. Honestly, the first question in an adultery investigation should be to the spouse "do you really care?" If the answer is no, move on.

But allowing a relationship with a subordinate to spiral to the point that he/she believes they are above their immediate chain is certainly problematic.

It baffles me in the day of literally carrying a device in your pocket capable of connecting you with people across the globe people still find a way to violate the first rule.

Don’t crap where you eat!

Well there was also the 2 other relationships dating back to 2008(?) that increased his punishment...

"Flagler-Mitchell has denied sexually harassing the girl...the Democratic legislator has since insisted that he believed he was sending the photo to his wife....he believes himself to be the victim of extortion."

Deny, deny, deny.  Counter accuse.  Demand apology.

Right out of the playbook...

So my 13 year old son showed me this today. The KFC gaming console with a built in “chicken chamber” to keep your greasy fast food warm. Please, please someone explain to me that this is a joke. If not, I fear we are truly ed as a species. 

Perfect for Leroy Jenkins
