  1. If you are the only US guy at an isolated location, you could always open your own safety office, put yourself in charge, create your own safety course and issue yourself a current MSF card...problem solved and a great OPR bullet. If anyone ever calls you on it, you tell them of course there's a safety office, who do you think issued the card?
  2. It's funny only because I know I never have to set foot in that place ever again. (Former 429 ECS member) If you're looking for entertainment I'd suggest taking a rifle, finding a farmer's house and asking him if you can target practice on some whistle pigs. Don't forget a shotgun so you can do some dove hunting too.

  4. Very cool Rainman. Neat seeing airplanes I've actually worked on sitting in there.
  5. Wow, I've heard of "Take your daughter to work" day but that is crazy.
  6. She had to wait till she was 27....same as Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin and Cobain.
  7. You are allowed to test earlier than the 42 days if you are in "exempt" status, you just have to request it. Generally speaking, you are in pretty good shape getting back from a deployment so might as well knock it out as soon as you can. 1.21.8. Ensures prior exempted members returning from deployment are assessed after the period of acclimatization (42 days from return to home station for RegAF and AGR; 90 days for other ARC members) unless member requests to assess earlier.
  8. Here's some advice...either have a dining in or a dining out, not a combination. Otherwise it's just a banquet. There's a reason they are separate, it's called Tradition.
  9. "Get inside her five times a day and take her to heaven and back." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e644WFD1rgM "Googles on, chocks away, last one backs a homo. Hurray!"
  10. Joined and 200 invitations sent out. Currently at 4,187 members.
  11. For those of us that were in elementary school in 1977, that's pretty much the way everyone looked....and we were cool dammit! I'm sure M2 and brick can speak to the terrycloth jumpsuits.
  12. Sky cops just posted their second DUI at the Rock inside of 6 months...way to go boys!
  13. They have one of those at the main gate at Little Rock. A few years ago I was driving onto base and had my 6 year old with me at the time. She looks up at it and with the straightest of faces says "Hey Dad, that's a Big Ass Fan!" Interesting few moments after that as she explained to me that that is what it said.
  14. I think the new research and development version is coming soon....the B-1RD. The Navy has a similar program called the C-GU11.
  15. I'm not sure about your situation but I have seen some aircrew with the parachutist badge, mostly Academy guys. The aircrew wings are worn above all other awarded badges.
  16. I'm pretty sure that's M2 on the left. We wore these uniforms when I joined in '87 and they were great. Very comfortable, you could alter the shirt to make it a short sleeve shirt, wear it untucked in the summer.
  17. So is there anything in the reg's that say they can't cover up their tats with gauze? I say fuk 'em and show up to work with either an ace bandage around your arms or gauze taped up your arm. Of course, I'm all for bucking the system.
  18. I believe it's the number of Raptors the Air Force is getting...or something like that.
  19. Just one more stupid thing I'm going to have to update on vRed. I'm sure there will be a CBT coming out soon to inform me of my options.
  20. No worries Stiffler, figured you had a good night out drinking. I'm not familiar with how the Navy does their flightline security, but guessing it is a "if you aren't allowed out there don't go" kinda thing. That would work pretty good if we could get kids to follow that, but you and I both know the number of morons that would be out there cuz they wanted to see an airplane, walking behind running jets, ect. I think the Navy probably brings that Carrier mentality to their land bases. You guys gotta remember that MX (my old career field) is pretty territorial when it comes to the planes and the flightline. We were tolerant of the cops being out there, but if someone was just out for a stroll...low SA on their part. Just the way we are brought up. This is actually one area I think we do need the red line kind of mentality, as HD said, there have been folks who have gone out and damaged our aircraft. But I agree with you on the disco belt-white sock thing.
  21. Probably true, but I was just a young airman who was doing what I was told to do by my flight chief. Believe it or not that whole Russian spy / sabotage thing was perpetuated quite a bit back then. We actually did think we were saving the US...maybe that's what's missing in the AF these days, a bit of the TAC/SAC mentality. Being a bit older I do have a little different perspective on things. So would I do the same thing today? Eh, probably not...Boom wanted stories, I gave him one.
  22. Sorry, next time someone breaks red I'll just sit there and play games on my cell phone. This took place in the 80's at the tail end of the Cold War so we took flight line security pretty seriously...I believe you were probably still in diapers back then. Stop drinking the Jack Daniel's Stiffler, it makes you angry!
  23. Doing a FOD walk at Mt. Home, had a guy walking next to me that I didn't recognize... Me: "Hey dude, where's your line badge?" Dude: "Uh yeah, I don't have one yet, my shop told me to come out here and help with the FOD walk." Me: "Ok, let's go." Grabbed him and took him straight across the red line. Sky cops proceeded to put him face down on the snow covered concrete. Mt. Home again, had a guy walking out to his plane over the red line...twice! Not like he couldn't see it and the ECP was only 25 feet away. Called it in and then proceeded to empty the truck of mx guys who surrounded him and dragged him off the line (he didn't have a line badge either, claimed he left it in his room). He ate concrete as well. Saw two of our AWACS controllers get jacked up in Alaska for crossing the red line....we laughed pretty hard at that one.
  24. The problem is that the idiots designing this stuff have never actually been in battle.
