Caldo ?    Noia  ?  Presunzione di ritenersi intoccabili ? Un po' di tutto ?

 

Anche perché ipotizzando che riescano a passare cosa pensano di trovare? Un ufo sotto un telo polveroso e degli alieni che giocano a poker coi marescialli? 

Qualsiasi cosa ci sia in quella base (anche dei "semplici " velivoli sperimentali ) sarà sicuramente dietro cemento armato e porte d'acciaio..

RAF Mildenhall ... la folle corsa dell'intruso ... ?

Quote

It was about 1 p.m. when the odd man with a teddy bear strapped to his chest showed up at the main gate to RAF Mildenhall in England. 
He was from the Secret Service, he said, as he attempted to show the guard a British passport as identification.
“This is a matter of national security, and I must speak to the president,” he said.
Seconds later, he gunned the engine, tires squealing, through the gate and easily swerved around a pop-up barricade. 
The shocked guards quickly radioed an alert: There was an intruder on Mildenhall — and nobody knew what he was going to do.
Miraculously, the ensuing chase, in which multiple shots were fired, ended with no injuries to the unidentified man aside from some bumps and scrapes during his eventual arrest.
But in those hectic 20 minutes, he was still able to drag a security forces airman; breach Mildenhall’s flightline; drive across active taxiways under the wings of two parked C-130s and within a few feet of a taxiing KC-10; and attempt to drive up the ramp of a parked Osprey. 
It ended when a security forces airman in a car rammed the intruder’s vehicle, pinning it against that same Osprey.
The teddy bear, which was torn to pieces during his ensuing arrest, was the only casualty.

“Our nation has secrets, and those secrets deserve to be protected,” Goldfein said, though he neither confirmed nor denied the presence of aliens at the base despite prodding from reporters.

He went on, joking that he was, however, looking for a very small airman to don an ET costume.

Oggi ...

While the bulk of the Air Force’s fighter fleet will not meet the directive to increase its mission capable rate to 80 percent, the increased funding and focus on readiness under the effort has identified issues Air Combat Command can address to improve the health of the fleet.
Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in October 2018 issued a directive to the Air Force and Navy to improve the readiness of the F-16, F/A-18, F-22, and F-35 fleets to an 80 percent mission capable rate by the end of fiscal 2019. 
With the deadline less than two weeks away, the only Air Force fleet that will meet the mark is Active Duty F-16s.

Air Mobility Command ... troppe missioni ... con carenza di piloti ...

Quote

Air Mobility Command this year is flying 15 percent more sorties than it did about three years ago - albeit with about 570 fewer pilots than it needs and using a fleet nearly 40 percent smaller than at the beginning of the Iraq War.
To address that burden, the Air Force is trying to keep as many pilots as possible, modernizing its fleet, and relying more on Air National Guard and Reserve crews to meet its need, according to AMC boss Gen. Maryanne Miller. 
Still, the command is keeping an eye on future threats from potential adversaries like Russia and China that can “stress the ability to freely move forces at the time and place of our choosing,” she said Sept. 17 at AFA’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference.

OPINION: Can US Air Force keep pace with its ambitions?

Source: FLIGHT INTERNATIONAL - September 20, 2019
 
Speed kills. 
To defeat a near-peer adversary such as China or Russia in a future conflict, the US Air Force (USAF) must operate at a pace that such nations will be unable to match.
As outlined by service leaders at the Air Force Association’s annual Air, Space & Cyber conference, the USAF must innovate rapidly and maintain a grueling tempo to keep its qualitative edge.
Some evidence of progress can be seen – Boeing’s newly rebadged T-7A Red Hawk was designed and flown for the T-X contest in double-quick-time thanks to its adoption of model-based engineering processes; and Raytheon’s proposed new Peregrine air-to-air missile draws on the company’s combat-proven weapons pedigree.
Equally clear, however, are the programme and contractual shortcomings afflicting the KC-46A tanker created from Boeing’s commercial 767. 
Eight months after making its first delivery and with four category one deficiencies still to be resolved, the airframer faces a challenge to win the confidence of a frustrated Air Mobility Command customer.
Perhaps the air force gathering’s biggest shock was a suggestion that some of its Boeing B-1B bombers might have to be retired early, due to unexpected stresses caused by flying the type under more benign conditions than the low-level, supersonic environment for which it was created.
Cutting the “Bone” could free up funds to grow the USAF’s future Northrop Grumman B-21 Raider fleet beyond 100 examples, but such reductions would be controversial. 
Could the service again face the kind of opposition seen when it unsuccessfully tried to retire its ground-attack stalwart the Fairchild Republic A-10?
The USAF’s leadership clearly have accelerating ambitions, but it remains to be seen whether the service’s budget and equipment plans will be able to match such a relentless pace.

Una proposta interessante ...

Quote

A direct line of communication between NATO air commanders and their Russian counterparts could be helpful in de-escalating tensions, especially when Russians fly too close to NATO aircraft and ships, US Air Forces in Europe Commander Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian said at AFA’s 2019 Air, Space & Cyber Conference.
A “deconfliction” hotline similar to the one between US Central Command and Russian forces operating out of Syria is “something we ought to consider,” Harrigian said. 
He has raised the idea with Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Tod Wolters, adding that Wolters, who also heads US European Command, is considering it.

The New York Air National Guard’s 109th Airlift Wing recently wrapped up a mission flying cargo to Canada’s northernmost base, a small alert site on the northern tip of Nunavut.
The C-130s and guardsmen flew seven missions from Sept. 26 to Oct. 4 to Canadian Forces Station Alert, transferring more than 100,000 pounds of cargo, according to a Guard release.
The Canadian base is 490 miles south of the North Pole, where 55 personnel live year-round in the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world.

Una cifra enorme per gli "Aggressori" ...

Quote

On October 18 the U.S. Department of Defense announced the award of contracts to a total of seven civilian contractors to provide contracted air support services to the Combat Air Force. 
The combined indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contracts have a not-to-exceed value of $6.4 billion
The contracts run until October 29, 2024.
$15.8 million of the figure is being obligated at the time of award from the FY2020 budget, to cover operations and maintenance. 
The contracting agency is the U.S. Air Force’s Air Combat Command Acquisition Management and Integration Center, located at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia.
The Air Force issued a request for proposals (RFP) for ADAIR (adversary air) in August 2018, and received eight responses. 
After an open competition, contracts are being awarded to: Air USA Inc. of Edgewood, New Mexico; Airborne Tactical Advantage Company LLC. (ATAC) of Newport News, Virginia; Blue Air Training, headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada; Coastal Defense from Mill Hall, Pennsylvania; Draken International at Lakeland, Florida; Tactical Air Support, in Reno, Nevada; and Top Aces Corp., from Mesa, Arizona.
These contractors - many of whom already provide services to the Air Force - will undertake mostly air-to-air adversary training missions and provide aircraft for the training of  Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) and close air support (CAS). 
The contracts stipulate that the contractors will provide aircrew, maintenance and support equipment, while ensuring that the programs meet military requirements.

Incidenti agli F-16 ... l'USAF non ritiene vi siano particolari problemi relativi alla sicurezza ...

Quote

Air Force officials overseeing the F-16 Fighting Falcon program say they’ve seen no data that indicates emerging safety issues with the fighter jet, though more than a dozen have crashed since 2014.
“The F-16 System Program Office maintains a robust and proactive system safety program, executed in accordance with United States Air Force guidance and in conjunction with the Air Force Safety Center,” the program office told Air Force Magazine. 
“Mishap findings and recommendations are constantly reviewed and analyzed by the F-16 SPO, as well as the aeronautics division of the original equipment manufacturer, Lockheed Martin.”
