Went to the 442nd Fighter Wing for a meeting today and found their original WWII battle streamers from when they were the 442nd Troop Carrier Group. #history #wwii #normandy #dday #eto #wwiihistory #442nd #442ndfighterwing #battle #arm#army #usarmy #usairforce #aircorps #armyaircorps #army #armyairforces #campaign #m1helmet #militaryhelmet

Me epically failing to get gas. I’ve spent quite a bit of time hanging out in the back of the KC-135. I’m always impressed by guys that just roll up and park in pre-contact position. Doesn’t even matter how big or little the jet is. They just roll up and STICK right there in formation. I even have EXTENSIVE real world experience flying formation. HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THIS IRL?! I have a strong suspicion I would have failed this phase of training hardcore. P.S. Yes, in the simulator, I do proudly fly jets with 442nd tail codes! P.P.S. TIL that you can’t have more than 30 hashtags! . . . . #pilot #pilotlife #avgeek #aviation #flightsimulator #flighttraining #brrrt #flying #KansasAirNationalGuard #ForbesField #ANG #190thARW #BoeingKC135R #KC135R #Stratotanker #stratotankerboeingkc135 #nkawtg #a10#a10warthog #a10thunderbolt #a10 #airforcereserve #442ndfighterwing #whitemanafb #442ndfw #attackaviation #militaryaviation #usairforce #closeairsupport #dcs #eagledynamics
