Subj: Pilot Turns Wrong Way While Taxing (S210, S1063)
From: allenbergman on 2/12/2009
During a taxi run, the crew of
a US AIR flight to Ft.
Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a
United 727. The irate ground controller (a female) screamed,
"US Air 2771, where are you going? I told you to turn right
on "Charlie" taxiway; you turned right on "Delta". Stop
right there! I know it's difficult to tell the difference
between C's and D's, but get it right!"
Continuing her lashing to the
embarrassed crew, she was now
shouting hysterically. "Now, you've screwed up everything;
it'll take forever to sort this out. You stay right there
and don't move until I tell you to! Then, I want you to go
exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell
you. You got that, US Air 2771?"
The humbled crew responded, "Yes,
Ma'am". The ground
control frequency went terribly silent; none of the air
crews wanted to engage the irate ground controller in her
current state. Tension in every cockpit at the airport
was running high. Then an unknown male pilot broke the
silence and asked, "Wasn't I married to you once?"
Foster Brooks - Airline Pilot Skit
From: Dalt Williams
..........in 2017 (S1063d-On Site)
Stumpy Grinder and his wife Martha
were from Portland, Maine.
Every year they went to the Portland Fair, and every year
Stumpy said " Ya know Mahtha, I'd like ta get a ride in that
theah aihplane." and every year Martha would say "I know
Stumpy, but that aihplane ride costs ten dollahs.... and ten
dollahs is ten dollahs."
So Stumpy says " By Jeebers Mahtha,
I'm 71 yeahs old, if I
don't go this time I may nevah go." Martha replies " Stumpy,
that there aihplane ride is ten dollahs... and ten dollahs
is ten dollahs."
So the pilot overhears them and
says " Folks, I'll make you
a deal, I'll take you both up for a ride, if you can stay
quiet for the entire ride and not say ONE word, I won't
charge you, but just one word and it's ten dollars."
They agree and up they go....
the pilot does all kinds of
twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard,
he does it one more time, still nothing... so he lands.
He turns to Stumpy as they come
to a stop and says "By
golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to
holler out, but you didn't."
And Stumpy replies "Well, I was
gonna say something when
Mahtha fell out...but ten dollahs is ten dollahs!

Subj: F-16 And C-130 Pilots Show-Off (S506b)
From: hellgunner50 on 9/27/2006
A C-130 was flying on a mission
when a cocky F-16 pilot
flew up next to him. The fighter jock told the C-130
pilot, "watch this!" and promptly went into a barrel roll
followed by a steep climb! He then finished with a sonic
boom as he broke the sound barrier. The F-16 pilot asked
the C-130 pilot what he thought of that.
The C-130 pilot said, "That
was impressive, but watch this!"
The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes, and then the
C-130 pilot came back on and said "What did you think of
Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, "What did you do?"
The C-130 pilot chuckled,
"I stood up, stretched my legs,
walked to the back, went to the bathroom, then got a cup of

Subj: Plane Needs Latrine Pumped (S472, S636c)
From: darrell94590 on 2/2/2006
and From: tom on 3/11/2009
A US Air Force C-141 is scheduled
to leave Thule Air Base,
Greenland at midnight. During the pilot's preflight check,
he discovers that the latrine holding tank is still full
from the last flight. So a message is sent to the base and
an airman who was off duty is called out to take care of it.
The young man finally gets to
the air base and makes his way
to the aircraft, only to find that the latrine pump truck
has been left out doors and is frozen solid, so he must find
another one in the hangar, which takes even more time. He
returns to the aircraft and is less than enthusiastic about
what he has to do. Nevertheless, he goes about the pumping
job deliberately and carefully (and slowly) so as to not risk
As he's leaving the plane, the
pilot stops him and says, "Son,
your attitude and performance has caused this flight to be
late and I'm going to personally see to it that you are not
just reprimanded but punished."
Shivering in the cold, his task
finished, he takes a deep
breath, stands up tall and says, "Sir, with all due respect,
I'm not your son; I'm an Airman in the United States Air Force.
I've been in Thule, Greenland for 11 months without any leave,
and reindeer's asses are beginning to look pretty good to me.
I have one stripe; it's two-thirty in the morning, the temper-
ature is 40 degrees below zero and my job here is to pump shit
out of aircraft. Now just exactly what form of punishment did
you have in mind?"

Subj: Pilot School On Sublimation (S441b)
From: The Joje Station on 7/10,2005
Some time ago, I was taking a
ground school class for private
pilots. During the sessions on weather, the instructor wanted
to discuss the concept of sublimation - the act of going from
a gas to a solid skipping the intermediate stage(s). e.g.,
frost - water vapor in the air becoming a solid on surfaces
without first going through the liquid stage.
Wanting to see if the class had
understood the concept, the
instructor asked if anyone could provide an example of some-
thing that went straight from a solid to a gas (expecting
"dry ice" as the answer), a previously unknown section of my
mind took control of my mouth and immediately emitted the word

Subj: US Air Force Needs More Recruits (S314)
From: LABLaughs.com on 2/4/2003
The chief of staff of the US
Air Force decided that he would
personally intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting all
of our armed services. He directed a nearby Air Force base
that will be opened and that all eligible young men and
women be invited.
As he and his staff were standing
near a brand new F-15
Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked like they had
just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting poster walked up
to them. The chief of staff walked up to them, stuck out
his hand and introduced himself.
He looked at the first young
man and asked, "Son, what
skills can you bring to the Air Force?"
The young man looks at him and says, "I'm a pilot!"
The general gets all excited,
turns to his aide and says,
"Get him in today, all the paper work done, everything, do
The aide hustles the young man
off. The general looks at
the second young man and asked, "What skills do you bring
to the Air Force?"
The young man says, "I chop wood!"
"Son," the general replies, "we
don't need wood choppers
in the Air Force, what do you know how to do?"
"I chop wood!"
"Young man," huffs the general,
"you are not listening to
me, we don't need wood choppers, this is the 20th century!"
"Well," the young man says, "you hired my brother!"
"Of course we did," says the general, "he's a pilot!"
The young man rolls his eyes
and says, "So what! I have to
chop it before he can pile it!"
Subj: Australian Pilot Standards (S298b)
From: jerry on 9/30/2002
The Australian Federal Attorney
General's Department has
ruled that blind and mentally disabled people can not be
barred from becoming airline pilots or air traffic
controllers because doing so breaches anti-discrimination
laws. This means that pilots, flight navigators, flight
engineers and air traffic controllers will no longer have
to pass eye and hearing tests and can have other medical
conditions that could affect safety.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority
has filed an "urgent"
application to the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity
Commission for an exemption from the Sex and Disability
Discrimination Acts, for obvious reasons. "Without
[enforceable medical standards] you would not be able to
guarantee the safety of flights because you couldn't
guarantee that pilots were safe to carry out their jobs,"
they say, rather obviously, at least to some people.

Subj: Who's Packing Your Parachute (S274d)
From: mjsally on 1/16/2002
(Also see 'Who Packed Your Parachutes' above)
Charles Plumb was a U.S. Navy
jet pilot in Vietnam. After
75 combat missions, his plane was destroyed by a surface-
to-air missile. Plumb ejected and parachuted into enemy
hands. He was captured and spent 6 years in a communist
Vietnamese prison. He survived the ordeal and now
lectures on lessons learned from that experience.
One day, when Plumb and his wife
were sitting in a
restaurant, a man at another table came up and said,
"You're Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the
aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You were shot down!"
"How in the world did you know that?" asked Plumb.
"I packed your parachute," the man replied.
Plumb gasped in surprise and
gratitude. The man pumped
his hand and said, "I guess it worked!"
Plumb assured him, "It sure did.
If your chute hadn't
worked, I wouldn't be here today."
Plumb couldn't sleep that night,
thinking about that man.
Plumb says, "I kept wondering what he might have looked
like in a Navy uniform: a white hat, a bib in the back,
and bell-bottom trousers. I wonder how many times I
might have seen him and not even said 'Good morning,
how are you?' or anything because, you see, I was a
fighter pilot and he was just a sailor."
Plumb thought of the many hours
the sailor had spent on
a long wooden table in the bowels of the ship, carefully
weaving the shrouds and folding the silks of each chute,
holding in his hands each time the fate of someone he
Now, Plumb asks his audience,
"Who's packing your
parachute?" Everyone has someone who provides what
they need to make it through the day. Plumb also points
out that he needed many kinds of parachutes when his
plane was shot down over enemy territory-he needed his
physical parachute, his mental parachute, his emotional
parachute, and his spiritual parachute. He called on
all these supports before reaching safety.
Sometimes in the daily challenges
that life gives us, we
miss what is really important. We may fail to say hello,
please, or thank you, congratulate someone on something
wonderful that has happened to them, give a compliment,
or just do something nice for no reason.
As you go through this week,
this month, this year,
recognize people who pack your parachute. I am sending
you this as my way of thanking you for your part in packing
my parachute !!! And I hope you will send it on to
those who have helped pack yours!
Sometimes, we wonder why friends
keep forwarding jokes to
us without writing a word, maybe this could explain: When
you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess
what you do - --you forward jokes.
And to let you know that you
are still remembered, you are
still important, you are still loved, you are still cared
for, guess what you get? --- A forwarded joke.
So my friend, next time if you
get a joke, don't think that
been sent just another forwarded joke, but that you've been
thought of today and your friend on the other end of your
computer wanted to send a smile.

yeah? Well, I can do a few things in this old girl that
you'd only dream about."
Naturally, the fighter pilots challenge him to demonstrate.
"Just watch," comes the quick
retort. And so they watch.
But all they see is that C-130 continuing to fly straight
and level. After several minutes the Hercules pilot comes
back on the air, saying "There! How was that?"
Not having seen anything, the
fighter pilots reply, "What
are you talking about? What did you do?"
And the Hercules pilot replies,
"Well, I got up, stretched
my legs, got a cup of coffee, then went into the back and
took a leak."

it finally took off. A concerned passenger asked the
flight attendant, "What, exactly, was the problem?"

noise he heard in the engine,"
explained the flight attendant. "It took us a while to
find a new pilot."
Subj: The Greatest Pilot in WWII (S187)
From: thebartend on 08/29/2000
It seems that a young man volunteered
for military service
during World War II. He had such a high aptitude for aviation
that he was sent right to Pensacola Naval Air Station skipping
The very first day at Pensacola
he solos and is the best flier
on the base. All they could do was give him his gold wings
and assign him immediately to an aircraft carrier in the Pacific.
On his first day aboard, he took
off and single-handedly shot
down 6 Japanese Zeroes. Then climbing up to 20,000 ft., he
found 9 more Japanese planes and shot them all down as well.
Noting that his fuel was getting
low, he descended, circled
the carrier and came in for a perfect landing on the deck.
He threw back the canopy, climbed
out and jogged over to the
captain. Saluting smartly he said, "Well sir, how did I do
on my very first day?"
The captain turned around, bowed
politely, and replied, "You

A commercial airline jet was
sitting at the airport waiting
for the pilot and co-pilot to arrive. Just as the passengers
started to really get restless, the airline announced that
the pilot and co-pilot had just gotten in and were on their
The pair came in through the
rear door and started making
their way up through the plane. The passengers began
whispering amongst each other when it became apparent that
the pilot and co-pilot were looking very blind. Both of
them kept making their way toward the cockpit, tapping
their red and white sticks against anything in their path.
The co-pilot even had a seeing-eye dog pulling him along
the aisles. After they sat down at the cockpit, the
passengers exchanged a few nervous laughs and thin jokes
about the safety of the flight.
The engines revved up and the
plane began taxiing over to
the runway. By this time a few passengers were craning
their necks, trying to see into the cockpit to see what
the pilots were up to. When they approached the runway,
the engines grew louder and louder as the plane went
faster and faster down the runway. Then the plane
actually went past the take off speed, but the plane still
was racing down the runway.
The passengers were really nervous
as the end of the
runway drew too close for comfort. The passengers began
screaming as the end looked near. Just as the plane
looked like it was going to crash off the runway, the
plane suddenly took off and began its ascent.
After the plane was at a safe
altitude, the co-pilot
looked at the pilot and said, "You know, one of these

going to know?"

blouse open, grabs a bottle of Chardonnay and starts pouring it all
over her chest.

asks the bewildered Marie. "I am

white wine!" They resume their passionate interlude and things
really steam up. Marie leans close to his ear and whispers,
"Pierre, kiss me lower!" Our hero rips off her underwear, grabs
a bottle of Cognac and pours it in her lap. He strikes a match
and lights it on fire.
Marie shrieks and dives into
the river. Standing waist deep, she

and says, "I am Pierre the fighter
