I'm curious... Does the OP have the same aversion the stickers and bag tags that have adorned flight kits for decades? Or the GA owner who has his tail number embroidered on his hat and polo? GMAB... Some things are just inherently a part of aviation. Having pride in your background is fine. Shoot, maybe consider it an opportunity to strike up a conversation instead of a justification to spite someone you haven't even met.

Does it bother you that I sometimes wear pins of vintage warbirds Iíve never flown just because I like them and I support/enjoy aviation history and organizations that preserve it (like the CAF)?

And, yep, great conversation starters. In fact, I get FAR more comments on warbird pins than on pins of the airliners Iíve actually flown. And had some really cool conversations because of them.

We had a guy who flew F-5s in the Iranian AF back in the day...thought his story was cool. Would not have known about it if he didn't wear the tie tack....it was nice conversation starter.

FWIW...I wear an ALPA tie tack. I HAVE worn an MD-11 tie tack... The story was I was a new hire at FedEx on a crew van, and made a comment to the captain wearing his. We chatted a bit and I mentioned I hoped to get to the MD eventually (in 02-03 things got pretty stagnant and movement was nil. I was on 727 panel 2.5 years...) Anyway--this captain reaches down, gives me his tie tack, and tells me the jet is worth the wait and hang on to this until you get there...you will love it. Now--a guy in his 50s just gave a guy in his late 30s a token--and yeah--we aren't 8 years visiting the cockpit the first time on a trip to visit grandma, but I thought the gesture was pretty darn cool. And...I DID keep the pin, and I DID wear it after MD-11 IOE for a while, and I still have it. When I finally step off the left seat of the 767, I haven't decided if I'm going to go to the left side of the fatter 777 or back to the MD-11, but part of the reason I still miss the 3 holer were the crews and the spirit and respect they showed each other as we explored the globe.

So--if I do go back--I'll be wearing the pin...until another FO stuck on another fleet asks me about it.

And...if that ruins your day...get over it. I like 'em. They tell a story. I like hearing stories...

Back in the 80s there was a USAFE squadron of C-23s at Zweibrucken Germany. I think it was one of these offset deals where because some country bought some weapons system of ours we had to buy something of theirs. Anyway, these guys flew unpressurized C-23s all over Western Europe delivering pallets and pax.
The squadron motto was,'We take it in the Shorts' if that tells you anything about their morale. :D

Exactly. Those folks had a WONDERFUL life in western Germany. Usually carrying a small box with a tube for an F-teen engine, two- or three-hopping around the continent. Oy!

After that tour, they would get back to the 'real' airlift Air Force, at a garden spot like Pope or Dyess. They always looked a little weepy from then on. 😥

The AF eventually gave the Sherpas to the Army NG. A sticker, on the wall of the Norfolk NAS Airlift Ops, from a PA NG Av Regiment said, "Give us a call, we'll come in our Shorts!"

You can probably rest assured that anyone wearing an airplane tie tack doesn't care one bit about about your ridiculously negative opinion. Nobody asked for your permission because your complaint on this subject means less than nothing.

Seriously, the fact that you've got a gripe about other pilots who enjoy flying so much that they wear airplane tie tacks is one reason why the whole sit down shut up don't touch anything attitude still exists, at least where it comes to flying with certain negative nellies. Some people got into this business because they love flying, and that tie tack is likely just a tiny indicator of their passion for flying. That you take offense to that tiny little tie tack speaks volumes for your attitude and how little your opinion really matters to an awful lot of pilots.

I've flown with pilots like you... Most were bitter because they failed at something that maybe I (and many other pilots) succeeded at, and they take out their angst on anyone who celebrates flying as something more than a 9 to 5 job. Not pleasant to work with.

Makes me want to go out and buy a collection of airplane tie tacks that I think are neat, just on the off chance that you might see me and blow a gasket. I'll store my extras on my lanyard just to rub it in. Double win, I'll get to wear a neat tie tack and I'll also get to witness your apoplectic fit as you struggle to remain cool in the presence of someone who actually likes their job.

You think very highly of yourself, I see. Narcissism is not a valued personality trait.

(In case you donít get why I said this, to paraphrase: ďmany old people are stupid, but Iím younger and Iím really smart.Ē Pretty much says it all - about you.)

No, I didn't say many old people are stupid. I said many people who say "snowflake" and "triggered" as a response to a disagreement are old. Which is true. Your other claims are baseless and contribute nothing to the original conversation.

Please refrain from replying, you are wasting everyone's time.

Letís try this again. Nobody cares about you flying fighters. But your assertions are showing your weird preoccupation that non fighter guys are secretly wishing they could join the glorious ranks of the tie tac in crowd. My post was meant to expose this exact hidden sentiment, which you have exhibited perfectly. Gracias.

You guys are dangerous and foolish, and that makes you dangerous.

Tie bars? Who cares...all of my tie pins are just as goofy as an F-15 tie bar.

What really triggers MY millennial sensitivities? The guys who use their military IDs to get through KCM. i mean you have a drivers license, and a passport yet you use the military card.

Fine Iíll bite if this is what you are fishing for then thank you for your service, Major.

This is the real issue facing us. Why isnít ALPA on this?

Hmm. Due to the need to CONSTANTLY use my mil ID to access email, the two most readily accessible slots in my wallet are occupied by my mil ID and my main credit card. I do actually dig out the DL for KCM, but it would be slightly easier to grab the mil ID.

Things I couldnít be bothered to give two turds about:

Aircraft tie pins

Hearing about your boat.

Why?

I don't need to know you flew (insert aircraft here) without speaking to you.

Why do you care if people are proud of their service? You get upset at old veterans wearing their VFW hats as well? If you can find a pin that says self-righteous twat, I wouldnít complain about you wearing it.

Point is, people have told you time and again on this thread why some people like to wear these and other trinkets, and also WHY no one cares that you are annoyed by that. You donít want to accept any of that, and you are the one who keeps doubling down on your original post.

So, go ahead. Be annoyed. Whatever makes you happy. 😏

Hey man, I just asked a question, no need to toss insults.

But you didn't just ask a question, you made a statement expressing your displeasure over people wearing said pins. Your follow-on statement implies that you're somehow the moral authority of what should and shouldn't be worn on a tie and that those who disagree with you need to explain themselves. Let me ask 2 questions in return, why do you care what somebody wears on their tie and why do you feel the need to then publicly express your opinion on such an inane topic? You keep revising why you made this post and what the point of this topic is but what you fail to realize is nobody cares what you think about their tie pin, this is now a 10 page thread on what a DB you are.

Why?

I don't need to know you flew (insert aircraft here) without speaking to you.

FWIW, while any protein supplementation as part of a structured workout routine should be beneficial towards hypertrophy, Pea protein is superior.

Spoken like your typical vegan leftist millenial. Since I don't eat meat, nobody should eat meat. Since I don't have a cool airplane to put on my tie pin, nobody should. It's not fair if everybody doesn't get a trophy!

Wow. So much to unpack here.

1. I make no value judgement in my statements on the worth of the activity or association represented by your tie pin. I just want to why you feel the need to display it.

2. I feel the need due to curiosity to ask the question. As this is an aviation themed forum, it seems like the appropriate place. Now, after seeing some of the vitriol here I am quite glad I asked online instead of the crew room. Language like yours would be a call to prostans for sure. But with a temper like yours, who knows, you may act out in a way outside the purview of their help.

3. Where did I mention anything about being vegan? I simply maintain that pea protein is superior both in taste, texture and nutrition (now it DOES have a reduced environmental impact, but I personally donít think itís enough of a difference to warrant switching based on that fact, but it is nice) to whey protein. Iím not vegan, I never said anything about being vegan nor did I encourage anyone else to become one. I ate a steak two nights ago with bourbon 🥃 to wash it down.

Also, Iím not a millennial, as I said before.

Have a GREAT day.

Oh yeah. Hereís the personal website of the guy who did the original work studying wolves where this stuff came from. He says he doesnít believe it and would stop publishing it but he doesnít own all the rights anymore.


https://davemech.org/wolf-news-and-information/
One of the outdated pieces of information is the concept of the alpha wolf. ďAlphaĒ implies competing with others and becoming top dog by winning a contest or battle. However, most wolves who lead packs achieved their position simply by mating and producing pups, which then became their pack.

Have a great day. (Whole milk latte is way better than soy, yuck)
