re: Mandeville vs Covington - USMEagles
[quote]Watch out for drugs though[/quote] There were plenty of drugs at St. Paul's when I was there, though I will say they went to heroic lengths to try and do something about it. We had a literal narc show up on campus my junior year, some baby-faced deputy sheriff from Washington Parish or Liv...

re: What Is Your Favorite Military Jet? - USMEagles
[quote]The movie made out like they showed up at a bar one day and asked him to fly the Bell to break the sound barrier the next day.[/quote] And the F-104 thing was portrayed as a joyride. It makes for a good movie, and I'm sure Yeager pushed to get the flights he wanted, but "joyrides" are just...

re: Question for new pilots or student pilots - USMEagles
A simulator won't help you much with the actual stick-and-rudder flying, but it might help you a little with the written exam. My recollection of that test is that there were a lot of questions about VOR navigation, and also a lot of questions about the sort of upside-down wedding cake airspace zone...

[quote]Hubby is in wholesale parts. When we bought our Subaru back in May, they didn’t come off the price at all. The salesman admitted that they get a salary and not a commission. [/quote] Subaru does a better job of setting a meaningful MSRP than just about everyone else. ...

re: What's one of life's biggest lessons that you learned the hard way? - USMEagles
Definitely "loose lips sink ships." Keep your mouth shut. The other side of the coin, though, is that maybe it's good to remember that just about every one of us will say something that comes across as really stupid from time to time. Sometimes you have to keep a cool head and give people a pass ...
