    Reapplied again.. Thoughts/advice?

    Can you expand on that... Why not a good idea? I'm not against the work involved. Also what about NWO? Thanks for your reply. 👍

    Reapplied again.. Thoughts/advice?

    Update time! Wrote TSD lady week... Despite having a decent CFAT score, the combined results couldn't hit the cut off for pilot... FYI, any thinking DEO pilot, the cut off scores are insanely high. However, I was offered some alternative trades... Intelligence, Logistics, Training Development...

    CF-188 Hornet, Canada's jet fighter

    I don't think so... the yellow was a narrow strip across the top of the tailfin.  I could see some of the side of the plane and didn't see any colour. I see the yellow on the wings and horizontal stabilizers... are they also yellow on the underside?  If so, they were not yellow. Just dawned...

    CF-188 Hornet, Canada's jet fighter

    I do agree that a big concern will be what the Americans think of us.  If they perceive us as being weaker or lacking capability, they may dictate more of what is done with North American air defence, and leave us out of the equation. If we really want to be a sovereign nation, we need to have...

    CF-188 Hornet, Canada's jet fighter

    Bird_Gunner:  Sounds reasonable to me... So what is with all the hand wringing then?  :facepalm:  Why do our governments feel this need to drag everything out?  Jesus, the current F-18 airframes are pretty much my age...  ::)

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    Unfortunately, the people who voted for JT (and at least in Ontario, were also sucked in by Wynne), as many voters seem to be these days, are very shortsighted and are drawn by sparkly things.  The media has turned JT into their little darling, with his great hair and selfies.  The millennials...

    CF-188 Hornet, Canada's jet fighter

    The Journos are watching, and they're pushing the Liberal narrative. This is absolutely true... it's pretty disgusting how much the media has been kissing up to JT.  They even still kiss up to Wynne as well, and I have no idea why - these two mindless jerks should be the first ones against the...

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    Wasn't trolling... and good points there.  Just asking because other countries, some that might be considered "allies" use Russian aircraft.  But I'll fully admit to not understanding all the ins and outs of aircraft procurement, including the various issues you guys mentioned. Thanks!

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    To be completely hypothetical here... So why is it that we are stuck with US or Western European choices? Could we ever cut a deal with the Russians?  Some of their fighter aircraft are world-class too. Just wondering. ;)

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    So, can someone explain why we got so tunnel visioned on the F-35?  Going back to the article I posted... because of our close relations with the states, it would seem we really don't need a "first day" strike plane.  So why the delay on replacing our old Hornets?

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    I read this in the NP last week.  Thoughts? http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/michael-byers-the-fa-18-super-hornet-a-better-fighter-jet His argument for the Super Hornet seems to make sense on the surface.  But I've go the feeling I'm likely missing something.

    ADHD, ADD, and why we can't get in rants......

    Hey Max, Totally agree with you. I had a prof at Queens in education who had a theory that ADHD was not actually a problem, but a modification in brain development.  In multitasking situations, she'd been involved in studies that found that people with ADHD worked better, as they seemed to...

    Why Europe Keeps Failing........ merged with "EU Seizes Cypriot Bank Accounts"

    "To be honest I think it's dumb. I think that it doesn't move us forward one millimetre on the question of stabilising Greece," he said .... The minister has it bang on. Greece still hasn't figured out how to manage itself.  This is a desperate ploy that will not help them at all.
