One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed.
The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee.
Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said, "What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?" The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing like yours and I'll have enough for another one."

Very funny. Here's another favourite of mine from a Blackbird Pilot... "Groundspeed check".

"I'll always remember a certain radio exchange that occurred one day as Walt (my back-seater) and I were screaming across Southern California 13 miles high. We were monitoring various radio transmissions from other aircraft as we entered Los Angeles airspace. Though they didn't really control us, they did monitor our movement across their scope. I heard a Cessna ask for a readout of its ground speed. "90 knots" Center replied. Moments later, a Twin Beech required the same. "120 knots" Center answered.

We weren't the only ones proud of our ground speed that day...as almost instantly an F-18 smugly transmitted, "Ah, Center, Dusty 52 requests ground speed readout." There was a slight pause, then the response, "525 knots on the ground, Dusty." Another silent pause.

As I was thinking to myself how ripe a situation this was, I heard a familiar click of a radio transmission coming from my back-seater. It was at that precise moment I realized Walt and I had become a real crew, for we were both thinking in unison. "Center, Aspen 20, you got a ground speed readout for us?" There was a longer than normal pause ... "Aspen, I show 1,742 knots."

No further inquiries were heard on that frequency."

Awesome! :mrgreen: 8)

Old story/joke:

An F-4 was escorting a B-52 over Vietnam. The F-4 crew was getting bored and performed a barrel roll over the B-52, adding the obligatory "yee ha!"

"Nice move" said the B-52.

"Yeah," said the F-4, "the ol' St Louis Slugger can do anything!"

"I bet there's something this ol' bird can do that your fancy jet can't do" says the B-52.

"Really?", the F-4 replies, "and what is that?"

"Case of beer on it?" the B-52 asked.

"OK, you're on!" says the F-4.

The two craft stayed in straight and level flight for several minutes. Finally, the F-4 comes up on the radio again.

"Hey!" the F-4 asks, "Are you going to do something or what?"

"I just did." replied the B-52, "I shut down two of my engines. Cheers!"

:lol:

Sue and Bob, a pair of tight wads, lived in the mid west, and had been married for years.

Bob had always wanted to go flying. The desire deepened each time a barn stormer flew into town to offer rides.

Bob would ask, and Sue would say, "No way, ten dollars is ten dollars."

The years went pay, and Bob figured he didn't have much longer, so he got Sue out to the show, explaining, it's free to watch, let's at least watch.

And once he got there the feeling become real strong. Sue and Bob started an arguement.

The Pilot, between flights, overheard, listened to they problem, and said, "I'll tell you what, I'll take you up flying, and if you don't say a word the ride is on me, but if you back one sound, you pay ten dollars.

So off they flew. The Pilot doing as many rolls, and dives as he could.

Heading to the ground as fast as the plane could go, and pulling out of the dive at just the very last second. Not a word. Finally he admited defeat and went back the air port.

"I'm surprised, why didn't you say anything?"

"Well I almost said something when Sue fell out,

but ten dollars is ten dollars."
