Are all fighter pilots better in skill than all bomber pilots though?
|Quoting Blackbird (Reply 11):|
What I want to know is -- are they *actually* better in skill than all bomber pilots...
|Quoting Blackbird (Reply 13):|
Then how do they decide (in the old days at least) who ended up in TAC, SAC, ADC, and AMC (Now they have different command set-ups which I forgot, I know there's ACC, AMC... but I don't know if there's anything else)?
|Quoting Blackbird (Reply 15):|
I would assume nobody on the top would have ever picked ADC, SAC, MAC, over TAC (the olde commands), huh?
|Quoting PhilSquares (Reply 14):|
When I went through UPT, everyone in the class was ranked by using academic and flying scores. The highest person was number one and the lowest person was at the end of the list. On assignment night, the top guy got his choice and as the list got smaller and smaller the choices dwindled. Finally, the last guy got the one remaining aircraft.

I'm sure you'll be indifferent to know that i still works that way. At least it did 4 years ago when I was stationed at a UPT base.
