Monarchism

…from an unexpected source.

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Christopher Simmons and Tech. Sgt. Leslie Bell speak to a group of Royal Canadian Air Force Cadets at the Field Training Detachment on Joint Base Charleston, S.C., March 16, 2010. The FTD is used to train pipeline-Airmen how to work on C-17s. During their tour, the cadets visited the training areas for the C-17 engine, tail and cockpit. Sergeant Simmons and Sergeant Bell are aircraft maintenance instructors with the 373rd Training Squadron based out of Sheppard AFB, Texas. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Lauren Main)

Royal Canadian Air Force Cadets board a static C-17 during a tour at Joint Base Charleston, S.C., March 16, 2010. The cadets drove 22 hours from London, Ontario, Canada, to learn about American military operations. During their tour of Joint Base Charleston, the cadets visited numerous base facilities and watched a demonstration of the military working dogs. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Airman 1st Class Lauren Main)

Royal Canadian Air Force cadets look on as U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Ken Connor demonstrates the modifiable capabilities of the C-17 cargo bay at Joint Base Charleston, S.C., March 16, 2010. Airman Connor is a load master with the 16th Airlift Squadron. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Airman 1st Class Lauren Main)

To be fair, the cadets are properly known as Royal Canadian Air Cadets (not Royal Canadian Air Force cadets).  But this isn’t the first time USAF’s tried to re-royalise the CF’s air component in its publications.

I think at this point they are just going to keep calling it the RCAF until we change the name back out of frustration.
