Hi, sorry if this is a little off topic, but according with the Columbus AFB site, the 48th Squadron trains pilots for B-1, B-2 and B-52 in the T-1 track:

Is this correct? I had understood that all bomber guys come from T-38 track.

 

This is a f*** up on PA's part. I know for a fact you don't get B-1s or B-2s out of T-1s as a UPT student, and once in a great while you'll see a buff that's usually from some sort of Joint Spouse drug deal. FAIPs can sometimes swing a B-1 or a buff at the conclusion of their assignment, and they have their own B-2 board that they can apply for.

PA probably used an ancient fact sheet; the T-1 originally was supposed to support the bomber track as well.

That being said, it's still their screw up, as the latest fact sheet on AF.mil shows airlift/tanker only (or just walk across the street and talk to ops), so bad on them.

KC-46 driver here. That program is nowhere near ready for any sort of Initial Qual. We’ve been screaming this for years and it’s falling on deaf ears.

If you’re a T-1 stud: 69% chance of a C-17 then rest is 1-2 AFSOC, couple wide body ISR, rest tankers. 
 

If you’re a T-38 stud with a pulse (even if it’s faint) probably a Viper but 33.3% repeating chance of a 5th gen; the other 1-3 studs will get a bomber. If you’re at Laughlin, 87% chance you get FAIPd. Better yet, if you’re at Vance or Columbus...you could FAIP to XL!
