Long 4 day?
Many long 4 days with the subset. Micromanage zealots. Just waiting for an instruction on how to wipe my ass. Just about everything else has been dictated.

The worst is a blue ring of death. Hi, I'm from the Springs. I am so smart, but I don't know anything about anything. Sexual harrassment, me and my college buddies never worried about it, ha ha, wink wink.

I also find it interesting how few academy grads get fighters. Whats up with that? Even if you don't see the blue ring you can still pick them out of a crowd after a few minutes.

I agree with you there. The worst I've flown with though was a former KC-10 driver, or any ex-marine.
Gotta defend the one devil-dog aviator I flew with at my old company. Was one of the best captains I ever flew with. I actually found out he was a Marine aviator by asking him instead of vice-versa. Cool cat.

Just avoid Jay Beard and you'll be okay.

I agree with the post about the F-4 guys. I have never met an F-4 guy who was not interesting and fun to talk to.

I have never met an F-15 guy who was anything but a toolbag.

Ha Ha! In the jumpseat home one night, 2 F16 types doing Cpt IOE. Third bounce and my ask cheeks are reaching for cushion as 73 finally has enough near downwind runway edge. Sure was a quite taxi-in. Nice guys though. Thanks for the ride ;).

Yeh, and they always generalize about all of us former 1900 drivers, just because of a few bad apples.

Great Guy (and a pretty good airman too!)
