    If he was a SNFO, he waited around 40 weeks to start API.

    He's SNA.

    Edit: Disregard, make that a ~5 month wait, not a year.

    I've seen it a number of times on the AF pilots and navs at NASC. Havent seen it on a Marine yet, probably never will. LOTS of navy studs do the "dip" at NASC. I guess its lead by example. I saw the O-3s and up doing, so why not. I havent been called out on it yet.

    Oh alright, I just haven't seen a lot of it in my experiences with the Air Force through CAP. But then again, we never interacted with a lot of the TACAIR types. Now if only they'd bring back the 100 Mission Crush. . .

    I think maybe the crush cap would look kinda goofy with a bag.

    They get progressively better, so don't judge them all on the first one or two. Click on the "Fun Stuff" link on the left hand side of our mighty Blue Falcon website.
