The Air Force has its own culture of course. And within the overall USAF culture there are many distinct tribes and subcultures. I was in fighters, not transports. I acknowlege the equal importance of the fighter community and the
trash haulers transport operators in the global air power big picture. Still, I can’t claim to understand everything about the rituals and mores of our cousins in the heavy lift world.
I’m pretty sure I could have lived with the Captain’s Bra, but I just can’t stand it when those guys put their spoons in their flight suit pockets!
