I don't see the point of shoving it down people's throats.
They're trainees in T-6s. I think next month or two they do track select and get T-38s (which are basically two-seater F-5s) or T-1s (which look like Gulfstreams) depending on whether they are going to fighters/bombers or transports/tankers. Or helicopters (forgot about that one.) I think they may get a new squadron assignment after track select but I'm not 100% sure yet. I'll find out from my stepson.
I couldn't take pictures because it would have embarrassed my stepson if I got all fanboy squee in front of his buddies. (He is in 14-04; this is 14-05's patch and they were present for the Track Select for 14-04 where trainee pilots are told what kind of planes they're going to be flying - my kid could have taken T-38 fighter track but he wants to be a commercial pilot so he picked T-1s which is the transport/tanker track.) Also the impression I got is that they vote on the patches and they have to get approved by the brass. This was their third try, so I don't know how much was genuine and how much was irony but there was at least one non-brony who straight up refused to wear it and I overhead another complaining to his mom about it. But the flight instructor (who was a captain) was wearing it and he had no problems with his masculinity...
How about Churrity? http://cheezburger.com/7093424128
Here's another one I found. The CCATTs (Critical Care Air Transport Teams) have got some cool freaking unit patches: http://cheezburger.com/7630182144
No, it's about her stealing the element of magic, taking it to AUquestria, luring Twilight here to retrieve it and then returning so that Twilight will be marooned here and then Sunset Shimmer can being a reign of terror as an evil Element of Magic. Meghan McCarthy... I can read her mind. :P
Listens to the sound of headcanon imploding all over the world...
The charm of this show grows out of the humor and the sheer innocent fun. Folks getting worked up about continuity to the point of unpleasant arguments and namecalling is one of the reasons I tend to stick to MLB. The posters there are just there for the lulz, for the most part. I would be delighted to watch Twilight learn to fly, regardless of the timeline issues. Maybe she was using levitation to help her out then and now she's trying to do it the "right" way... I am looking forward to Season 4 with excited anticipation. I accept that some episodes will be better than others and that there will be continuity errors, animation errors, gaping plot holes... those are great opportunities for making some lols IMHO.
