Gray Beard (4/4)



  1. It's a close race at the moment 🤘, but I think the airlines are leading; my particular outfit hasn't seen a raise since 1/1/2019. Zero, zip, nada.
  2. Well...neither are any other employers within our career field, if we're being completely intellectually honest about it. In fact, I'm not sure any career other than finance or corporate senior execs are coming close, but I am standing by for correction.
  3. Maybe. I'll be the first to agree that overconfidence, leading to operational hubris, could be crippling if allowed to fester unchecked. Trade show tech. That's what most of what you listed consists of. Trade show tech, without the logistics, training, and integration pieces, leads to a re-run of what history has shown several times, Desert Storm being the clearest example in the past century. Thing is, we don't put our starting lineup in trade shows. Hell, as has been stated in open source articles, we don't even train with it in the open atmosphere... fwiw, I think we left Taiwan to fend for itself back during the "Peace Dividend", we just don't openly state it.
  4. All true, but you're mis-labeling APA as a union. There's always someone right around the corner ready to remind us that it's an "Association". Usually an APA lawyer, but I digress...
  5. Ahhhh, yes. MMT. The gift that just keeps on giving.
  6. 😐🫤😆🥹😅😂😂🤣🥲🤣🤣🤣🤣 had to replay that three times to make sure I heard correct. Quote of the year right there.
  7. That...is the resilience the AF has been trying to develop in airmen. And can never seem to get right.
  8. Or have a set of massive balls with the skillz to back it up.
  9. Couldn't say. Currently flying a 737 so I have no perspective...
  10. lol, at least the RoK has a sense of humor about that stuff... (s)
  11. https://www.airandspaceforces.com/amc-commander-lays-out-mobility-manifesto/ Long time ago, a former CH-53 crew chief told to me that his training syllabus included a landing. Nothing fancy, here's how you set down if the need arises, nothing more. My guess is that future booms are gonna get some landing practice, just for funsies.
