It’s like the same story is a mad lib on repeat and different names are just put in the blanks. Sigh :/
Dale Russell says he’ll have more on the story tonight at 6pm, Fox5 Atlanta.
Update: the Georgia National Guard posts this statement via FB.
The Georgia Guard fully welcomes this investigation because we were the ones who requested that National Guard Bureau, as an outside Federal agency, investigate our processes concerning these flights so as to completely ensure no regulations were violated. It is up to NGB to determine how best to investigate and who to bring into their process. We are happy to talk further once the investigation is complete.
We hope that Fox 5 includes in its coverage the fact that these flights were all vetted and synced up with pre-existing training flights, and were of no additional cost to the taxpayer because these training hours were already budgeted. Our pilots are among the best in the world due to the constant training they do everyday
