  1. Being on an IL-76 is gross. Although the Garmin strapped to the nav desk downstairs is funny. And the only non-Cyrillic I found was on the weather radar scope. 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.
  2. Back in my day the sims all shared the same visual generating hardware. So you only got the visuals for a small part of your sim time block. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Should have been the triangles, triangles with the triangle notch cut out in the back, or even the ANG-style generic aircraft. YGBSM that multiple Intel weenies can’t even deal with WEFT. We’ve been ing teaching it for decades...
  4. Probably the formation of Flankers at the top. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. Don’t know what you hashtagged and QAnon is scary as hell. But the Atlantic does a good job explaining why otherwise sane people believe the nonsense: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/06/qanon-nothing-can-stop-what-is-coming/610567/
  6. Not so true moving forward. Tankers will need lots more time in the vault even though the community doesn’t want to go that way.
  7. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/09/us/politics/kamala-harris-policing.html CA differs from your opinion. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. Note the small boat tossed up onto the east shore in front of where the other warehouse used to be.
  9. Reports say 2,750 tons of Ammonium Nitrate. That is >1000x the blast in OKC. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Unless someone changed the definition of the airspace it is only the airspace over the land mass of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. That’s a great link thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. The 217 isn’t gone. It is just one pub with the 202 because it is a digital pub. Stall recovery should be a per airframe procedure. Sadly, most AF simulators can’t accurately reproduce a stall. It is a pretty big upgrade for civilian sims from what I’ve heard.
  13. For clarity: AF stall/upset training is largely unchanged and only good for small aircraft like our trainers. Maybe our fighters, I don’t know I don’t fly them. FAA AC 120-109 and AC 120-111 are the changes to which I was referring. If you’ve gone through an enhanced stall/upset recovery syllabus it is eye opening. Executive summary: “max relax roll” and minimizing altitude loss in most large aircraft is not the best way to recover.
  14. You will live on base or only in a single-occupancy place off base while TDY.
  15. Stall/upset training has recently changed for the better. We are way behind on it in the AF for big jets. We teach great stall recovery for small trainers though!
  16. I haven’t read the whole thread but the use of OCPs is to sell the narrative that the Democrat-controlled cities are “war zones.” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  17. The BCU was replaced a few years back. There will be -10s up for sale/static display at a later date. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  18. 86-0036 has flown west for the last time. 58 remain.
  19. MAJCOM matters more than MWS. If you wind up in AMC you can plan on at least a 10% lower chance of promotion to O-5 than any other MAJCOM. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  20. Valid DP...likely to be picked up even APZ.
  21. I will eat my hat the day you get a 365.
  22. Seems legit to run that exercise during COVID Ops where were can’t even leave the state if it is “red.” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  23. You’re not AD any more, yes? There is a Reserve pay issue with the flight pay change.
  24. Hm, violating a direct order from the SECDEF doesn’t have consequences? What ing military are you in?
