Yep, not incapable
Refute it if you don't like it- but it is the truth. We don't drop bombs at 121 carriers.
I'm sure it was a hell of an accomplishment, and fun, and lots of respectable things- but it relates to airline flying about as well as a floatplane
Unqualified but not Incapable
That should be the military only pilot's motto and it ain't necessarily a bad thing either. UAL's 400hr wonders back in the day were also Unqualified but not Incapable. As are many hired to fill quotas (nearly all I've flown with have been motivated and capable) not to mention the lucky Riddle guy here and there who got an internship, or the low time fella whose uncle was the CP. Having the right connections makes up for qualifications.
It's just the dishonesty of the whole thing that frustrates the RJ Captains and who can blame them?
