"I am the very model of a modern air force chief of staff" (fp) (if my eyes can make captcha work, I should outsource that to nigerians...)

Tony McPeak, former USAF Chief of Staff, never lived down the derision he earned for trying his version of a new uniform (and despite the reversion from the Navy-style "aluminum stripe" rank insignia on the sleeves, it still looks like a reject from Barniff).

It looks like some people just don't learn. What is it about the Air Force that draws such loony uniform changes?

"Seventy six trombones led the big parade, with a hundred and ten cornets close at hand..."
The image from the wonderful musical "The Music Man" came to mind when I saw this.
The wiki article on The Music Man has a reprint of Dick Van Dyke as the con man Harold Hill in the 1980 revival.

The US Air Force has recently instituted a flag officer exchange program with the Russian Commonwealth.

Here we see Field Marshal Yakov Smirnoff giving his first speech on sartorial tips to his new hosts.
