Cadet/IP: Bishop / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 09 Sep 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: Last night was IQT-2 for Bishop and he did a great job. In addition to flying very nice formations and tac turns, he did a great job employing weapons and evading bandits. We had multiple opportunities to practice shooting, supporting and leaving followed by the other pilot providing cover for egress; the bandits never really had a chance. :) We topped it off with some missile evasion practice and a nice TRP back into Kunsan. Looking forward to IQT-3!

Cadet/IP: Bishop / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 13 Sep 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: Bishop and I had a really nice IQT-3 flight the other evening. He's got a good sense of what's going on around him and always had eyes on the fight. We managed to survive (and win) all 3 engagements including the final one with a MiG-29 armed with all aspect heaters. Bishop also does a nice job on the tanker and has got a pretty good handle on the tac turns including the TRP. Time to move on to ground pounding!

Ready to go do some dog fighting!

Thanks, guys.

My confidence level is much higher about moving mud than dogfighting.

I think that second splash photo above might be my first gun kill in BMS in a proper dogfight, and not either shooting at a bomber in the training or killing a tanker out of frustration.
