Have they flown 100 missions? Apparently this is the "rotation out" magic number.
i don't think so, but i will check. Plus, i thought that only happened for US pilots. Am i wrong on this? Does it happen for Chinese? Anyone else?
noticed the same thing with British transport planes. And, yes, it seems that the "missing" pilots all had flown 100+ missions (I've noticed that pilots do not automatically rotate out after 100 missions, some of my pilots stay even after 100+ missions). It seems that this feature is not keyed to US pilots but to all Allied pilots (pretty historical because the Commonwealth Air Training Program).
well, then i guess it's possible, as i haven't been keeping track of the missions flown, although i thought it was around 75 for the most experienced - but then again, i haven't checked specifically on them. i'll have to do that this p.m.
So, presumably it will happen with the Dutch, Chinese and Russians, also??
This is curious, as i thought i had seen some of the Chinese and Dutch with well over 100 missions. Again, i'll have to check on this.
Thanks for the tips!
