xx Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

April 29, 2020, 18:30:52 by KawarthaCruiser
In spite of current government spending on Covid-19 and other military priorities like the fighter replacement or shipbuilding, wouldn’t this be an excellent time to pick up a half dozen used Airbus A-330’s on the civilian market to replace the aging CC-150 fleet?  With airlines grounding massive numbers of aircraft it would seem likely that good deals on used civilian airframes/powerplants could be made.  I seem to remember that the CC-150's were purchased on the used market from a bankrupt Canadian airline.  Is it time to replace the Polaris with something more modern and easier to maintain?

xx Social Media Policy question

February 02, 2020, 22:07:14 by birth control glasses
I am not in the military but my dad was in the Air Force for 20 years. I have learned a few things over the years. I have a genuine question and I can't seem to find answers online. I'm really not trying to get anyone in trouble but I follow a person who is in Air Force training and they frequently post detailed pictures and descriptions about what they are working on. I am all for the person having pride in their job but something instinctually tells me that may be against the Air Force social media guidelines. It just seems like they are sharing information that shouldn't be so freely shared. Maybe I'm just being paranoid, maybe the rules have changed over the years and it's completely fine. I can't seem to find clear answers on Google. I have been wondering about this for over a year as I watch them share all this info. I truly believe in the concept loose lips sink ships. If anyone can please clarify if this is within the Air Force social media policies I would really appreciate it. To be quite frank it pisses me right off. It just doesn't seem right. I made an account only to ask this question so if I am completely off base (pun intended) forgive me.
