Pilot Stories

Sitting around with guys who fly planes is fun because you get to hear the funny things they've seen. The co-pilot on my last trip said he knows a captain who wears a nametag that reads TED STRIKER. Email me if you don't know why that's funny. We also have three Captain Morgans, and a Captain Captain.
Another pilot tells a story about his first landing with passengers. In pilot-speak, you either 'grease it on' or 'pound it in' when landing, and this particular one he pounded in quite authoritatively. Said he had to check to see if he was still alive. The airport was built so that the concourse faces the cockpit of the parked plane, and one of the passengers stopped, put down his luggage, waited until both pilots were looking, and then gave them a double bird.

In the Ted vein, you need to have a quest for Cpts. Over, Under, and Dunn.
