Color me surprised...

Won't it be fantastic when bureaucracy stops fucking this away and dudes on the ground actually get to see real effects?

Although pulling a ton of G's in front of a crowd isn't exactly the point of flying, it's a shame that the USAF doesn't quite get what motivates people to join.

It's fantastic that Tops In Blue will continue to suck up tax dollars, but little kids at airshows won't have a high AOA pass, or sonic doughnut emblazoned in their memory. I doubt anyone raises their right hand based off a bad rendition of a Barbara Streisand show-tune...

Perhaps I'm getting old and the sight of an A-10 wrenching a level turn around the infield, or an F-16 muscle-climbing from a near stop to 10k' isn't that impressive anymore. But, jaded old me still stopped to watch when our local demo pilot was practicing, and I'm pretty sure every soul-containing being within in sight of his show did too.

I left Afghanistan shortly before this occurred and had heard of the JTAC (SrA Brad Smith) being killed. I didn't know the ROMAD's story; it's, to say the absolute least, incredible...

I wonder what the stats for helicopters are.

Unfortunately google+ pages do not allow for multiple admin support. My intent is for any past or present FAC(A) to be able to post personal stories or opinions on this page. I think google is headed in this direction, and once there we will be able to write things for public consumption or for fellow FAC(A)'s to reference.

Word of mouth will hopefully form this page into something useful to those of us lucky enough to know this mission.
