Now the A-225? Pristine inside unless you go back into the tail (not my photo) where they all smoke and it stinks just like an IL-76. Sweat, smoke, jet fuel, and a few other probably toxic things thrown in the smell mix.

So like the KC-135 Boom Pod? Copy.

They must have forgot that Coast Guard tankers are painted white and orange. It's a common error.

They’ve since apologized for the mistake and corrected it.

Good for them, actually happy to see them owning the mistake instead of just deleting it with no mention

They also both float on blue surfaces...so practically indistinguishable.

Feel like this belongs here. First I’ve heard of it. 
 

seems like the first writing on the wall for the Air Force refusing to fix their problems on the pilot side.

PTN is not real pilot training.  Nothing stopping Ops Sq/CCs from keeping PTN wonders in MR training till they prove themselves to standards.  Sucks for the graduates as many probably didn’t ask for this but this business shouldn’t  GAF about feelings.

What?  Zero comparison 

I wonder what people in the 90s said about T-1 training when everyone had only gone through T-38s.

 

The point is, pilot training changes.

What’s your fucking point? This was already posted a while back in reference to mortuary affairs, the original source of the patch.  Classic PA mixup but in true leftist media fashion blow it up into some Trump conspiracy.
