  1. But he was an Indiana man... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. 1. Not a lot of trips. Fly a few locals a month. 2. Expect once a year or less moving forward. 3. 3-500 including sims. 4. Co spots are drying up. More AC upgrade spots replacing. AC upgrade 24 months less if you’re good/lucky. IP upgrade another 12 months. 5. WRI transitions first. 2 ARS shuts down soon. SUU transitions second.

  3. You do realize that some of these leaks are a form of power? Not saying that happened here but... Authorized leak: “US considering air strike...” Bad guy land: “Oh shit! Let’s not do X COA...” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. The long-term effects of this thing are quite nasty in many cases. I wouldn’t want to risk my flying career over something stupid like not wearing a mask and maintaining distance. I also wouldn’t want to risk it over purposely getting infected when there is very little data to support effective herd immunity from this virus. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. I propose it becomes “Cal” in the north, “Ifor” in the middle, and “Nia” in the south.
  6. I read it that way. It was funny. But also true and sad at the same time. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. At least there was a possible 4T4 then. They kept all the bad above and reduced the local flying schedule. And there are no trips to be had...and the only cargo is that which we make. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. My best guess is tanker units stopped shopping for things with sequestration...fly shorter sorties closer to home (see either 7BAx2 or 777 only). Then OSTs forgot they’re supposed to be managing training for the wing (forecasting training needs). Now, OSTs and OSOs have lost the corporate knowledge to seek out the training we need and units either get scraps or you see “hookups” begged for on Facebook. Funny thing is our training requirements haven’t increased...we just forgot how to do what we used to do.
  9. Especially where we just read an AIB in which a dude morted and one of the contributing factors was a poorly flown ILS approach.
  10. I’m 90% certain Guardian is the latest PYB. How long until a full blown meltdown? Does he still drive his Eclipse? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. I think we’ve found Shazaam’s original account. Member since 2010 w/10 posts all on this thread. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. Actually it is a 6 hour class and 5 hours of it can be covered by CBT, sim time, or a combination. Source: I went to AIS once. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. Those are not valid reasons. They have to initiate proceedings to remove you from the list. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. You continue to meet the board until you are no longer allowed to stay in (24 years as a Maj). Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. You have a timeline to keep. They were supposed to give you the continuation paperwork when you got your 2nd non-select counseling MFR. If you don’t sign by (30 days I think) it is automatic non-continuation. I could be wrong I haven’t read that reg in a while. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  16. KC-10s are in need of night fighters all the time. I’ll see if our barrel can reach out to yours. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  17. Amen and amen. I’ve had the opportunity to be a DO in garrison and deployed. Day to day ops was do it smart and right. Every once in a while there was something that required pushing the envelope...but those days were the days to double-down on top cover to make sure the right people were on the missions and the risk was mitigated or accepted with full knowledge at the AC-level. CCs are supposed to manage careers and DOs are supposed to lead the mission and protect the people from themselves and the leadership above.
  18. The Epoch Times isn’t exactly a great news source... Edited to add: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/24/technology/epoch-times-influence-falun-gong.html
  19. Use Rule 7 not Rule 6. I’ve seen people get approved for ground school (ATP/CTP) and I’ve seen the same commander tell them “no” for the flight portion because it doesn’t help the AF. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  20. They designed it to fail...so it failed.
  21. It isn’t an ADSC, bro. You can leave any time after you complete other ADSCs or even transfer ADSCs. If you decline...ADSCs don’t matter you’re out 6 months after the board stuff IAW the AFI. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  22. That story sure seems legit... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  23. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2020/10/26/qatar-australia-strip-searches/?outputType=amp Why the are these people our allies? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  24. Not necessarily, but you won’t be qualified for ejection seats which means you can’t fly the T-6...
