  1. https://fox59.com/news/hundreds-turn-out-to-honor-corporal-humberto-sanchez-during-hometown-procession/ One of the 13 heroes come home today via Grissom ARB. 1000s (not an exaggeration) of motorcycles in the procession. It took hours to transfer Corporal Sanchez to his home in Logansport because the streets were lined with people paying their respects. He was 22. And he was a patriot.
  2. Thanks for sharing that. I agree, she doesn’t sound loony at all. In fact, she’s voicing many of my own concerns in a coherent and logical manner. A little grandstanding in there, but hey, that’s Congress.
  3. For those who have it, how do you guys view the profit sharing concept after COVID airline losses? When are you expecting to see profit sharing again?
  4. Contact your MPF. They’ll know if your particular base/AFSC is eligible.
  5. I bet you already saw this. https://www.airlinepilotcentral.com/airlines/cargo/kalitta_air Their new contract sets them up nicely amongst the ACMIs. Unfortunately I don’t know anyone over there. But former K4 guys now at FedEx have told me repeatedly—guys are generally happy at K4. One dude told me he was so comfortable that he even debated putting an app in with FedEx. Again, all secondhand info, so nothing to base your decision on. Just be careful perusing the APC forums for actual info...it’s a ton of sport bitching and over emphasized negativity by a vocal few. Hopefully someone on here can provide you with some firsthand info.
  6. You have just succinctly described the entire woke movement. Nice job.
  7. “2”. I won’t lose a pension over it, but my family will not be participating in the largest human experimental medicine charade of all time.

  9. FedEx Update (December 2020) - We will be opening two new bases in 2021, a 767 Oakland (OAK) base and a 777 Anchorage (ANC) base. OAK is slated to open in the fourth quarter of FY21; ANC is forecast to open in the first quarter of FY22. We’re excited about these new locations and the operational flexibility they’ll provide in both the domestic and international markets. Both bases will provide opportunities for pilots as well. Speaking of opportunity, I’m pleased to report System Bid 20-02, which closed December 3, was successful in filling nearly 400 captain and over 500 first officer vacancies. As mentioned in previous communications, we plan to hire nearly 900 pilots in the next 18 months. It’s an aggressive plan reflecting significant business level increases we’re seeing across the system. At the same time, new pilots will be needed to cover normal attrition due to retirements and departures, as well as the need to staff new 767s and 777s joining our fleet. Got those apps in!
  10. Yeah, I can see that. The FedEx pilots living out near/at HKG have similar issues. Simply not possible to avoid in some cases. There is a list of approved airlines the company is allowed to use though; a lot of these smaller national airlines are excluded from the approved list.
  11. 737 down in the ocean near Jakarata https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/indonesian-authorities-have-lost-contact-sriwijaya-air-flight-182
  12. Found on APC. Good summary of current parking situation. CNBC Summary
  13. So many cool pictures from the U-2
