If Chinese forces are actively using lasers to try an blind our pilots, you have to think that the Chinese are willing to up the tensions between the two countries.  I wonder if this was a local commander or some local troops going off script.  If not, that worries me.

Interesting report on the weapons used in the recent strikes on Syria.  Will see if it deters Assad from using such weapons.

The Air Force is drawing back big on outreach while it retrains its PR operations.  IMHO, in my opinion it isn’t a good sign that they are spending this much time on bureaucracy.

The USAF is reemphasizing the military theatre of space operation.  Clearly if the balloon goes up, space will be a decisive area of operations and it looks like the USAF is coming to realize it.  Story here.

I am a huge F-106 fan.  Looks like Trumpeter is ready to release their two seat F-106B.  I can’t wait.
