@ArcticWarrior @CarpeNoctem@clluelo back in my days, usually, after 2200, there is only 1 active watch Member on the after brow, but one other 'in reserve' in a compartment near the after brow - or MAA office.
Being enlisted, I'm not sure of the Quarterdeck watch (Quarterdeck or Forward brow -if you will - is reserved for Officers) requirements, but believe it is similar.

@SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) @oldSquid(Mafia)@LauraKinCA@LawyerHandletrue - he was vague, stating only the western taliban controlled area of Pakistan, he was a bit 'shy' about disclosing too much trying to protect sources from what he alluded to in his conversation.

@LauraKinCA @oldSquid(Mafia)@LawyerHandlehe stated there were several in that area that could handle a 777...
disclaimer...I'm not an expert, just relaying what I've heard - and he apparently has good sources...
@LauraKinCA @LawyerHandle...which would fit with Gen. Mcinenerny's (?) interview on the Hannity show (it was you tubed) explaining that the plane could have landed in 'taliban controlled western Pakistan'... and explain why the Navy - according to him - stopped their sea search - and Israel is boosting its air defense...
Sean, good article - and plausible. I had heard that either the pilot or copilot (copilot, I think) was related to Anwar Ibrahim...so the political aspect is on the money in my opinion... plus the missing files from the simulator should make for more interesting info when it comes out.
Good analysis, Blake... for my 2 cents, I think Putin is looking to move on the rest of Ukraine, and as has been reported elsewhere, he's also eyeballing Estonia - because russian speakers there are 'being mistreated'...

@Taikei ahhh, Shinjuku... used to ride up from Yokosuka as young squid...had a blast. In fact, caught Led Zepplin in concert there... Also, Krispie Kreme opening in Tokyo was mentioned... I remember when the first McDonald's opened near the USO in the Ginza...line stretched for blocks, and same with KFC when they did...
