Well, I hear the Air Force is short of pilots... :twisted:
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".

Saw it happening. The dam I work at is not too far down the road. I opened up Flightradar24 and determined that it either had to be the .mil or Boeing on a test flight (they fly a lot of stuff around Moses Lake).

Short answer, no. Their punishment ended up being an apology tour. The pilot didn't get his FRS instructor tour orders pulled. The higher ups showed the obligatory outrage for the press but when the crew explained what happened and were appropriately apologetic it pretty much blew over. Not saying having Air Boss handle your FNAB is a walk in the park, but it could have been worse for them.

tcourtplayer: Zombies
JAG: For when they hide behind engine blocks?
tcourtplayer: Just because the movies say they will be dumb and slow doesn't make it true.
JAG: WOW!!!
