    Showed his blog to USAF personell and a former F-16 engineer- they were aghast at his adhocism and ignorance of safety in flying.

    He’s a decent pilot and officer,cultured and has a penchant for writing.

    He was part of the PG test team as well.

    But technically he is of the generation who true creme was lost with AVM

    TallGuy's credibility is highly questionable. I am yet to be convinced by any of this person's claims...not even sure if they are tall ...or a guy.

    Windjammer confirmed on another thread he was canned because of his impromptu interview with the CAS.

    Now its not a conspiracy.

    Next is tallguy and omars claim of 8 aircraft - at the number of pilots getting awards, seems it is evidence to support their claim...

    I am not going to get into KT's achievements, but when you say "he's a decent pilot", you must have flown with him, yes or no?

    Not necessarily. But a word from his IPs and juniors are from where most of us have heard about his proficiency as a pilot.
