Did he do a lecture on crosswind? Or was he doing a lecture on hotwind?

The reason you see everybody with notebooks is because whenever the Dear Leader is at one of these things, he's issuing "spot guidance." In other words: the Dear Leader clearly is the *expert* in everything, so when he comes and tells you how to do something, you better write that down!

And don't be seen not writing every utterance of the Dear Leader down, lest you find yourself farming rice in a gulag on the Yalu, or worse.

I'm not sure which would be more entertaining to hear, an actual translation of that video or a Mystery Science Theater 3000 style dubbing.

So I asked a coworker who speaks a little Korean to take a look at it. He said the gist is "everyone gathers around to witness supreme leader's first flight" but by his own admission he's pretty rusty. He might take a closer look at it tonight.

You're the Dear Leader of the "greatest, most powerful nation on earth" and you cram yourself into a crowded, old Cessna?

If that were me I wouldn't be flying, or flying in, anything that didn't have meal service and a head.

He's perfect, so he can fly whatever he wants.

He should be in Air Force Un!

Hey look, more pointing and notebooks. Maybe that really is a thing.

It actually, truly is. He provides guidance on all things because he is all knowing SME.

That's a 206, with four or five people in it. The climb after rotation was really slow. I was in a CAP 206 three weekends ago, with three people, and it climbed a whole lot faster.

Thats definitely not a 206.

You want to watch a 206 climb? [video deleted]

Then what is it? There are five people in it, and the windows look right. There seems to be a difference with the doors, but everything else looks right.

Well, I checked out the windows again, and I'll buy 172. But it sure looks like there are three rows of people in that plane. And flies like it. So shoot me.

Aha!

One of my questions was answered!

But was Great Leader piloting it? When he started taxing, Great Leader was alone. Then they moved away, showed the two or three rows of people but did not show the pilot!

I think what's throwing a lot of people off is that the second row of seats have a high back to them and the people in them are leaning forward.

So they are leaning forward to help the plane fly? Did they raise their legs as well?

Probably leaning forward to get into the brace position.

For what its worth, I followed these instructions and didn't have the Matrix listed, so I submitted a trouble call saying the directions were not accurate, only to be told I didn't have access to the Matrix and Wing commanders need to approve. Not the easiest thing to explain to leadership why they should spend time approving me just to see where the planes are at...Oh well.

That doesn't work. I'm in the new eservices and maintenance module makes me select a wing and doesn't give types, instead just tail#'s.

That's because it's information that neither you, nor the majority of the rank and file need.

Those that need it, get it as a matter of their position appointment.

That looked like an AN-2 in the background, right at the end.

... er, excuse please. That was the "Great Patriotic Seventh Gen Stealth Bomber", to be sure.
