I hear ya. I am just saying the dude speaks the truth in the PA aspect.

absolutely...no one cares.....hell I don't care and I'm sitting next to the guy. The only person I ever actually didnt like flying with, was an f14 guy that just wouldn't let anyone forget it....very annoying.

I have 2 questions for you:
1. Why do you keep calling people "sport"?
2. Do you really think that you have"done a wee bit more exciting flying on 6 continents" when compared to combat missions or say a night red flag as mission commander in a viper? Or night low level in a Herc?

Are drunk or crazy when you rant?
Exciting is all relative to the time and environment. But there you go with your bragging about your military flying. At the end of the day deadseal, one should be comfortable enough in their own skin where they don't have to keep reliving the past with those who really don't care. Go ahead and re-up if you miss that type of flying.

"Captain Obvious"? What's that all about? Don't you feel that condescending to say the least?

Chill out and enjoy the day. This is an informal board, nothing to get your knickers in a twist over.

But hey, who knows, (or cares), anymore? These mini-eruptions are funny!

You respect civilian pilots? Reading you above posts and shows a holier than though attitude with complete disregard for a civilian pilot and then you end it with the word respect. All after you explain how the military flying is harder. Give me a break with the respect thing man. Personally, I could care less. In all walks of life it's better to remain silent and be thought the fool than to speak and remove all doubt. Actions and abilities prove what kind for pilot you are regardless of background or garbage spewed on a web board...

Fighter class A rate is approx 5.0
USAF overall was 1.12 in. 2015
US scheduled service for larger than 10 seats was 0.16

Yeah, fighters are about 5+ times more dangerous than the overall USAF rates and about 30x the civilian risk.

Deadseal is right, fighters are way more dangerous than airline flying. Over a 20 yr career you've got about a 10-15% chance destroying an airplane and a slightly lower odds of killing yourself.

That's not counting the roughly every 100 hr 'oh sh*t!' moment that doesn't make the official record.

How about who gives a rats [fungal toenail]. Airline flying is extremely boring, who cares, lets keep it that way.

If you were fortunate enough to fly fighters, you know what it was like. Others who haven't can only wonder, but you know...

That said, in my life I have seen that typically the amount of boasting one does about their fighter career is inversely proportional to the amount of chatter they do later about it. The Mig/Mirage killers I know...one a board regular...typically are quite humble and quiet. The guy who barely made 2 ship or maybe 4 ship lead before going back to ATC won't shut up.

Be proud of what you did, but remember the aggressor motto: Be humble.

But I don't need to relate my 40+ years experience to the folks in the back or anyone else for that matter who really don't give a crap. That's what the bar is for after the day of terrifying feats of commercial aviation after shooting a coupled CATIII Autoland Approach. That is of course if anyone cares to listen to the "There I was" stories.
All I was talking about was the ridiculousness of this comment......I think we can all agree.
Everyone knows that no one gives a damn
He [apple pie] on some dude for saying he has respect for military folk, [carrot ginger soup] on "double breasted admirals" for talking about how awesome they are, and then told us that he has done "a wee bit more exciting flying on 6 continents" then military folk in the same breath.
The jump to disrespect for civilian flying (which I am exclusively a part of now) is your problem, I fail to connect those dots. But then again I am pretty stupid.

Let us not forget that captain crazy pants went on a rant for an event THAT DIDNT [fried okra]ING HAPPEN AND WAS A PRANK ON GUARD!

sweet 8lb baby jesus
at 16 months at big D now I have never heard a captain talk about his past credentials during the welcome PA fwiw.
that is all from me on this
