are conducted every single day by operational carriers in order to warm up the catapult in anticipation of launching aircraft," Ravelo said.
Aircraft are launching and recovering, catapults are shooting no-loads
, mechanics are doing engine turns, people are re-spotting and parking aircraft, "grapes" are refueling airplanes and helos, and other Sailors are handling ordnance.
Someone asked about T-funds and no-loads
and wide loads and doublewides and "Double Dare" and the Doublemint twins.
The noise generated on a ship from the no-loads
, chains, towbars, and the 1MC, conspires against us.
Not all mutual fund families are willing or able to pay fees to supermarkets, so that means that not all no-loads

Timbers contemplates relaxing Kemper's load structure, but won't divulge details except to say, "You have to wonder whether the industry is going to migrate so there's little distinction between loads and no-loads

The same logic that keeps no-loads

The rule has given us a fund marketplace where we find deceptive selling of Class B shares, deceptive competition with the no-loads
