  1. The KC-10 cockpit has always been a dinosaur. Is the C-17 doing LNAV/VNAV and LPV? What about the block 45 -135?
  2. Those will be repaired and sent straight to retirement most likely. Different pot of money.
  3. Smarter Every Day on YouTube did an interesting series on life on a sub. He showed how they generate oxygen by burning huge candles. No idea if they have something like that on board. Thinking about the movie U-571 makes me shudder.
  4. Back when men were men, and they thought they could burn water.... 😂
  5. I thought I remember reading that it was a substantiated allegation of frat but I don’t remember where I read that and I may be wrong.
  6. Depends on how it’s written next year. In 2014 I signed the bonus for 5 years. In 2015 I was allowed to renegotiate to 20 YAS.
  7. Hey, I didn't write the forum rules.....nor am I a mod/admin......
  8. No one. But your exemption on those grounds is personal. Not religious.
  9. Interesting. In the early 2000s IFT was a “go to the FBO and get a PPL on Uncle Sam’s dime” program. It was great. And had zero influence on my ability to fly the Tweet upside down or in fingertip.
  10. Well yeah. But no major religion prohibits vaccines. Some minor religions have prohibitions on transfusions for example, but to say you have a prohibition against vaccines if you belong to a church that has no such restrictions means you really have a “personal” exemption. Not religious.
  11. Curious as to which religions take issue with vaccines? I know that Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventist have well known restrictions. Or are we talking “personal” religion?
  12. Yes. That's exactly right. I mean, I just finished Operation Varsity Blues on Netflix, so maybe that's coloring my opinion a little. But this is exactly how D1 college scholarships work almost all of the time. I see this in my own small town where our swim club has a hard time competing with nearby large city clubs because we don't have access to the facilities and professional coaches that they have.
  13. I’d agree with this. When I went to UPT IFT was a PPL. Making a PPL part of the selection does limit the type of person that is competitive for a UPT slot. Kind of like you need to have a rich mom and dad to get onto the sailing team at Stanford.
  14. Check Next President thread and take your pick.
  15. It was inevitable once enough data had been collected on the vaccine to demonstrate its safety.
  16. We've already entered a single aircraft UPT world right now with UPT 2.5 By 2025 all the T-1s will (might) be retired and it doesn't seem like the money is there to buy enough T-7s to replace the T-38 in UPT. But if money it no object, I'd prefer UPT maintain a dual track pipeline where future fighter pilots can work on fighter pilot stuff and mobility pilots can practice copying ATIS.
  17. Everyone keeps saying this, as if Twitter was an actual issue and not incompetence.
  18. From the article, for those who just read the headline: Austin said the Defense Department will achieve this by: Enhancing current initiatives to push back against foreign governments’ efforts to make being LGBTQI+ a crime Initiating or supporting initiatives to tackle “discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, and intolerance on the basis of LGBTQI+ status or conduct” Widening current efforts to make sure the department regularly engages “with governments, citizens, civil society, and the private sector” to advocate for the LGBTQI+ population’s human rights and tackle discrimination Taking the potential impacts of DOD-funded programs on the human rights of all people (including the LGBTQI+ community) into account when deciding what to spend Pentagon funds on
  19. This sounds awesome, so I doubt this is the correct answer.
  20. Well, when you own the money printing machine.....
  21. What’s burning? Did I miss another storming of our Capitol?
