Gray Beard (4/4)



  1. I know one and he works as a training instructor now so he can spend more time at home with his kids.
  2. Air Force Times article: ”Woman who quit Air Force commando course questioned ‘highly suspicious’ lower standards” http://airtim.es/jpes9SD?fbclid=IwAR2qjxDSfsd7i619cK_-glWtwdG94WkUsai_3YzII_9Cwr9BKnd2SlH298k
  3. To an all-around great guy and one hell of pilot… Him him 🍻
  4. If you are for sure wanting to or going to live in domicile, go with that specific airline. If you’re going to commute, go with the stronger airline. ***** commuting sucks *****
  5. Start looking for an AFRC or ANG unit now!
  6. Officially retire in April, will probably start terminal in February. I’m looking into DoD SkillBridge also that I can start 6 months prior to retiring in my retirement location.
  7. I can retire in April 2023. My family wants to move to where we’re retiring to post-military in December 2022 so my sons can start second semester at their new school. My question: will the military move me for my final move earlier than my retirement date?
  8. http://airtim.es/0SS7oBo?fbclid=IwAR0V5EZBcqEbE1NHgL37Ub0DCv2Yu-hUJxjmAKaos3MI9H-SQn9Bjx7W8aM “Kendall signaled the service could return to a more aggressive approach, where it will push lawmakers to approve the retirements of “aircraft that we no longer need and that do not intimidate China.” “In an August interview with Defense News, Kendall said the Air Force was considering bundling aircraft divestments in a single package, which would allow the service to make cuts without having to debate every proposed retirement individually.” “These older fleets are “consuming precious resources we do need for modernization,” Kendall said at the conference. While it’s understandable that lawmakers try to protect their districts’ economies, local political interests are coming at the expense of national security priorities, he added.” ”It was a frequent occurrence during my confirmation process to have a senator agree with me about the significance of the Chinese threat, and in the same breath to tell me that under no circumstances could the — take your pick — C-130s, A-10s, KC-10s, [or] MQ-9s in that senator’s state be retired, nor could any base in his or her state ever be closed or lose manpower that would cause impact to the local economy,” he said.” “Kendall asked the audience to imagine a headline in a Chinese newspaper where the Chinese legislature’s representative in Hunan opposed the retirement of J-10 fighters until the J-20 had been fielded.” “Can any of you imagine that headline in the South China Morning Post?” he asked. “I cannot.”
  9. Our Wing Vice is always an AD O-6.
  10. 18 AF/CC: I am proud of our aircrew who made tough calls in uncharted circumstances. You epitomized “mission type orders” and why empowered Airmen are so important. OSI is involved because of the tragic deaths of foreign nationals. This is normal anytime fatalities occur. I am not aware of any Q-3s for the crews involved. Thad Bibb
  11. Evacuating? https://www.airway1.com/afghan-a-29-super-tucano-aircraft-shot-down-by-uzbekistan/
  12. Change the narrative a little and it still fits what’s happening in today’s USAF.
  13. I’m not sure about others but for United, once you get a CJO, it’s good for one year. Once your application is submitted and there’s nothing to fix, people are getting an invite for the Hogan and if pass that, a call for an interview pretty fast (1-3 months). United wants to hire 2200 pilots by the end of 2022.
