So, here’s what jumped out at me from the height article.

“Don’t automatically assume you don’t qualify because of your height,” said Maj. Gen. Craig Wills, 19th Air Force commander. “We have an incredibly thorough process for determining whether you can safely operate our assigned aircraft. Don’t let a number on a website stop you from pursuing a career with the best Air Force in the world.”

I get all the anthropometric standards at all, but I think it may be time to, oh I don’t know, change the standards a little bit. The way it’s worded is horrible, proven by the fact that a two star has to get on the internet and say “yeah, I know what the reg says but apply anyway and we will waive it.”

A sporty landing on a icy runway at ORD today.

Assuming the CA attempted to exit at that taxiway, might have been a good day to let it slow down a bit before taxing clear.  Had roughly 7K runway remaining.

I don’t see any spoilers coming up at touchdown.

The inboard spoilers were up, you can see them stow as he starts his turn.  Not sure if the outboards were supposed to deploy on the 145.  Either way, hate that for the crew.  

Full video.

You said that, but a half dozen on this board heard (in your voice): “Spoilers! SPOILERS!! Yoke aft! Level the wings! Centerline, left wing up...Spoilers!!!”

Well, here at Dyess we are 3-D printing the controllers for the B-1 avionics system for pennies on the dollar.  As well as replacement ICS switches, switch covers, and other cockpit components.
I don't think we're quite to printing a new engine from scratch, but if I can get even these plastic pieces in a day instead of weeks, for a fraction of the price... I'm all for investing in the idea just to see what airmen can make.
I'm old enough to remember bitching that the Air Force didn't want ideas from anyone below O-6.  I'm sure as hell not going to shoot down airman Snuffy's good idea "because that's how we've always done it".


AFREP?

Bruh ...this is glaringly obvious this is the Air Force's way of pursuing a "diversity" (our state sponsored religion) initiative and pushing for more female pilots, without explicitly accepting more females over men, which it can't do. The AF times even understands this, and it wrote an article noting as much. While I admire their ingenuity, I loathe their cause. Clown country, and ever increasingly clown AF.

Does diversity equal genitalia or skin color? Asking for a friend.

Whoever came up with this idea will probably be getting a huge Christmas bonus.

https://triblive.com/lifestyles/food-drink/pbr-offering-epic-99-pack-of-beer/

"The limited edition family pack was being sold by a Minnesota distributor for $59.99 and they couldn’t keep it in stock.

It’s available in 15 states, including Pennsylvania, in limited quantities.

The PBR rep could not provide specific locations for where the 99 pack is sold in the state.

As soon as I saw that dude I wondered what his thought process was. "Hum, lets see, I'm a goofy looking bastard and I'm not having any luck finding a girlfriend, I wonder if I turn myself into a heinous looking woman if I'll have any luck?" 

And, yes I know I'm a big goofy looking bastard myself, but I know better than to imagine myself as a woman.
