As of right now that waiting game isn’t happening. The MAF FTUs are taking UPT grads within a month of graduation. This was not the case when I went through ~7 years ago. I sat for 6 months between UPT grad and PIQ start. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Isn't there usually a blanket interfly that every deployer is automatically subject to when they arrive in theater? It would be insane to have to execute a new document every time just to mix crews. I have definitely flown on jets with crewmembers from a different base on jets from a different base without a personally named interfly agreement.
There is only so much flat, graded, asphalt surfaced space and fuel farms/infrastructure on the island… I wouldn’t blame them not betting on repeated sorties when your opponent has Super Power quantities of SR/MRBMs not to mention a fleet of cruise missile carrying bombers. You’d be asking for performance out of PAC-3 and Aegis that nobody has actually been able to duplicate outside of a Tom Clancy novel. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
Last night (aired today) Simone Biles - greatest American Olympic gymnast- withdrew from the women’s team competition after one event. Original thought was a medical issue but it turns out she withdrew because of mental health concerns. The US ended up finishing second to the Russians for the first time in several olympics.
