  1. I can’t tell if this is sarcasm or not. Tilt rotor time counts toward ATP mins since 21 Oct 22. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2022/09/21/2022-20328/recognition-of-pilot-in-command-experience-in-the-military-and-air-carrier-operations
  2. If AF Crimes’s Rachel Cohen says it is fake news…I’m inclined to believe it is fake news! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Well, there’s no shower on the airplanes so he isn’t likely to attack anyone’s daughter, right? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Can’t do that in Qatar.
  5. Nope but they call it Big Sexy!
  6. And the KC-10 is the advanced tanker (and cargo aircraft)!
  7. I know a guy who put together a package to show MAF training was equivalent to doing the ATP-CTP. He was basically told by big AF to stop his efforts. Besides, you already don’t need an ATP to get hired. Lots of my friends were hired with just the written. All that said though, the cost of an ATP is a very tiny entrance fee to a good job.
  8. Because that thing is barely a tanker unlike the 135 or 10. I assume that fatigue would play a part since that’s a lot longer than AMC bubbas are used to operating. But maybe the bunks are super comfy or something?
  9. Some Pease dudes just flew a 36-hour super sortie. Makes McConnell’s 24-hour sortie a distant second place. So, how long until these “tanker” guys do a48-hour sortie and destroy a jet? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Surprised no one posted this earlier. Pilot “under evaluation” in the hospital last I saw. https://www.stripes.com/branches/air_force/2022-11-07/in-flight-emergency-columbus-afb-7962990.html
  11. I think this thread now counts as NSFW… Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. https://theaviationist.com/2022/11/03/italy-will-buy-six-kc-46-tankers/amp/ Guess there might be a good exchange tour in 6-9 years. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. I’ve never seen that happen to a KC-10. The boom fell off once, I guess, but I heard that was maintenance’s fault anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Not likely which is why they did it in military controlled airspace.
  15. I don’t know how to fly without an FE to get the lights and speed brakes.
  16. I’ve heard 66.66666% (repeating of course) of Peggy pilots at one base are non-current for receiver AR.
  17. It is a display error only Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  18. ing traitor spies! #amidoingitright?
  19. This one was a good copilot back in the day.
  20. Pay up Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  21. James Bond is either good at laying pipe or Hollywood is repetitive.
  22. Christmas came early that year! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
