According to the following site, Nino Balducci appears to be a slang term given to a long-serving Air Force cadet.
A little more unsubstantiated rumour concerning the perpetual cadet was that some members of the class of 1959 went to Italy and heard about an aeronautical engineer who designed a bomber which never flew. His name was 'Nino Balducci' and he started to appear on Alpha Rosters, etc.
