    Hang in there Gunny!

    I read an interesting article over tje weekend...sorry, can't link.

    It's actually that the OR Rate for the F-22 is around 55%...i.e., for every 10 aircraft, 5.5 are operational. The article I read was that through a herculean effort by the maintenance squadron almost 69% of aircraft flew out.

    The base commander had to make the tough decision of what was the best he could do and then get people and resources the Hell out of Dodge ahead of the storm.

    It was a triage moment.

    And as Gunny said, this storm caught all flatfooted.
