My classmate got invited to an air force after party by one of the female pilots at the airshow... I was intensely jealous.

Gab if you can remember, get ahold of me next year before the Abbotsford show. I can probably get you into the performers beer call.

It's an awesome movie, lots of amazing flight scenes. I haven't seen a subtitled version yet, I watched it in French. But still worth downloading

Chevaliers du Ciel - YouTube
Just downloaded. Trailer looks pretty good. 720p only took an hour to download considering not many seeders.

Ya my instructor was telling me about that just the other day actually. They basically put the props to full fine and just let the thing fall out of the sky. 11,000'/min?

Makes sense too considering they make money based on how many loads they do a day and they can only work on decent days.

Catherine Bell..... yup.

Back to the old school with some F4 Phantom pics. Has anyone every noticed how remarkably similar the front end of this plane is to the Avro Arrow?





Random but awesome shot of some HALO jumpers with either a missile or shuttle launch in the distance. Would really like to try this.

Your roommate was JTF2? I bet you've heard some cool stories. I want to go JTF2, don't know how possible that is since i'm going pilot but if I fail out of flight school with them i'm going infantry or somethign similar.

I've heard some crazy stories about the JTF2 selection process. You have to really really REALLY want to be there to make the cut.

^another test I've heard of is the 'sandbag' test, where they stick you on a beach and give you a bag, which you fill with sand. You then scale a rock face with it and pile it on top of the embankment. Apparently you do this indefinitely - you have no idea when it will end.

Another one is a forced march through waste/sewage type material after a long march which causes blistering on the feet, which can get infected and hurts like hell. Again, indefinite amount of time.

The one thing I've heard for all of these tests is that they make quitting or opting out extremely easy - IE you just call out and it's over for you. I would imagine that would make the tests mentally even harder, especially against competition.

Again though this is heresay - I don't know if these two tests are exactly what they do, but it sounds about right. I have family members in special units as well and they can't ever really divulge much.

I met a few recently, can't say where, but it's not hard to figure out how we find so many ground targets in Libya..... Anyways, most of those guys are pretty chill and you wouldn't tell they are spec ops dudes - they just wear normal civy clothing and normal dress and deportment don't apply to them. They would come and go in their grey bus, bringing back goodies from the desert. A few of us were playing COD during a midnight shift and two of them walked it, wanting a shot at the title. So here we were 3am, two techs vs two of "them". Long story short they aren't as good in the virtual game as they probably are in real life. They would go off and sleep in the tall grass instead of using cots. It was kinda sketchy since the grass is filled with snakes and other poisonousness insects.

JD I think we're pretty similar haha.

Ya the SAR guys are crazy, saw a few of them in Trenton.

One of my friends who did a tour had a guy in his team that tried out for JTF2, initial push up test he did 118 push in a minute (military pushup for those that don't know, hands under your chest with your thumbs right at your nipples and push all the way and all the way to the floor).

I've got the body type for it and I like to think the mentality but the latter you won't find out until you go on course.
