  4. -Sorry posted earlier in wrong thread Pretty sick SUVs these guys make for a steep price but they still look cool for those of you who like bad ass looking military style vehicles. Plus the guy who created the company has a history with flying. https://www.rezvanimotors.com/...ar#the-story-of-ferris-rezvani Sent from my SM-F926U1 using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. KC-135 has been a great aircraft to fly up until Blk45 became more of a negative than a positive (see autopilot issues in other threads) but for as old as she is she is really a great plane to fly. The 135 is definitely a more hands on airplane to fly that you have to handle and understand we don't have the automation many newer airframes have. Deployments: all depends on your unit but right now we're doing squadron Deployments and those are lasting about 4 months but with covid and times changing we're seeing a lot of changes. Ops tempo is extremely high right now. As a copilot it won't be too bad for you but once you upgrade expect to be other road a lot TDY and etc. The KC-10 is slowly going off line so we have been picking up a lot of taskings and we've even had to cancel leave for ACs we are so short manned. Let me know what other questions you have but overall I've liked my time in the tanker. Sent from my SM-F926U1 using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. Long story short our crew just experienced a land as soon as possible IFE crossing the ocean recently and had to turn off all radios but one and received help from an American crew on 123.45 to pass position reports to Santa Maria until we were in VHF range of Lajes. I just wanted to know if someone can get me contact information to reach out to American to thank that crew for the help. Anything is appreciated.

  11. Hey guys if you get the chance let's try to save a piece of aviation history.

  13. I saw it, solid movie in my opinion but I wouldn't pay $20 for it. That's just me though 🤣 Sent from my SM-G973U using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Definitely do a KC135, she's old but still getting the job done Sent from my SM-G973U using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. Fairchild has been doing business efforts recently trying to help out the units dying for currency. We love BEs because it keeps us away from flying around the flagpole day in and day out. We almost did one at Ellsworth but got hit with covid restrictions and had to help them from home station. I'd love to help out some units on the east coast. Charleston would be dope since it's home lol Sent from my SM-G973U using Baseops Network mobile app

  19. Does anyone have a contact that can email me in global the IFG for the 161ARW out of Phoenix. I flew with one of those dudes a while back and love the oceanic checklist they have put together. Thanks Sent from my SM-G973U using Baseops Network mobile app
  20. I have to say that Jon and the team at Trident did a great job for my family with our first home purchase and then our most recent refinance with no costs out of pocket for us. It was again a great experience and they even worked to get things moving faster in the event of a sudden trip that got dropped on me. Great job guys, you guys rock. Highly recommend them!!

  21. Toast🍺. Sounded like a great dude.
  22. Johnson’s Sewing on commerce street did mine. She does a good job
  23. Can anyone give any insight into whether carpal tunnel makes you DNIF and if so, how long? What is the process to get it fixed?
  24. Just wanted to post another great review for Trident. Those guys worked around the clock to get us everything on time and answer any questions we had about the process. They gave great unbiased advice and had the best rates around. Rates are continuing down and I would highly recommend using Trident if you are looking to buy or refinance. We worked with Jon, Lisa, and Bri and they were fantastic. They get a big fat E for everything. Thanks again guys!
