  1. FYSA, you can do 2 years with CSP at Osan and still update your short tour return date and short tour count. I didn’t believe it, but I just returned to the CONUS from a CSP tour at Osan, and vMPF updated my date. Might wanna check that out... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Yeah, seems like he had gone out and then back in a couple times, huh? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  4. Brabus, that was a day that started out terrible and ended well. Glad you were on scene.
  5. WIC grads in exec positions is definitely NOT the standard in the CAF. Seems like a phenomenon only in the MAF. Could it possibly be true that the old FWIC concept was unnecessarily watered-down by the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality when operators of every MDS got a seat at the table? I mean, if your wing/MDS can spare target arms for non-W prefix work, doesn’t that make them superfluous? (Yeah yeah, burn the witch...I know...)
  6. A little grammatical correction yields the truth: “Mission first, people! Always!”
  7. No more ADOs in the CAF. I’m at a certain PACAF fighter base where every FGO in the OG is either a DO or CC, and we are sub-80% manned.
  8. I see this happen all the time with members of the MXG here in Korea. Usually the FSS just extends their DEROS, and the MXG middle management (junior NCOs) in charge of those young airmen don't mind, because they keep their "bodies" around. I saw a guy PCS 3 months after his original DEROS, and only after a high-speed Top-3 buddy of mine overheard his story and started advocating for him. Then we got to watch everyone act all surprised: "WHAT??? THAT'S HAPPENING HERE???" GMAFB. When overseas on a remote, playing chicken with the FSS doesn't end well. It **SHOULD** result in peo
  9. I feel bad for whoever gets fragged for this SIB. Not only do they lose a month+ of flying, but they have to listen to Raptor dudes refer to their jet in the 3rd person. ("And then, Raptor did....")
  10. Cajun was the best of us. This is a huge shock. Nickel in the grass, Big Cat. You’ll be missed.
  11. About 36.9% better. There’s a “one car per household” rule here, so the majority of accompanied pilots I know are forced to moto/scoot to work so CINCHOUSE can shuttle kids around. #pilotshortage
  12. Osan just got a huge batch (some without the chest hole for combat edge, which is useless anyway) and all pilots are wearing them. They’re fukkin great. Also got the matching pants, which helps because I motorcycle to work when it’s 3.6 degrees out.
  13. Yeah, it might be Kelly. I'm not sure...all I knew was it definitely wasn't Luke or Holloman.
  14. Here's my take: AETC wants to evaluate whether or not UPT in its current form can withstand a change when it comes to CAF-bound pilots. Maybe it'll be a paradigm shift. Data points: - The T-38 replacement decision was recently delayed by at least one year - Pilot shortage - Changes in how fighter aviation is going to look in the future (think: how the F-35/F-22 are employed vice traditional "VMS 2/4-ships") - Budget constraints I wouldn't be surprised if they're hoping to go to a one-airframe UPT that's bolstered by sims to transition CAF inbounds to "fast j
  15. Those Growler bros who drew the sky dick messed up in their message. Right away, it should have been a post on their social media: "To show solidarity with the Movember movement, we did our part to raise awareness for men's health." BOOM - it's a movement. Use the social welfare BS when it suits you. At trial: "WHAT? YOU'RE AGAINST MEN'S HEALTH??? GENDERIST!!!"
