Gotta admit, I kinda had an "Ahhh SH!T" moment when just the handle came up by itself...glad it's not topic of reading about another VR member's terminal inconvenience during flight ops. Way too many already.

 

Would like to start reading about more creative & non-aviaition ways like "fell into beer tank and drowned" or "was overcome by too much physical activity with a busload of virgins from a beachside women's modeling college" kinda thing. Even "went to bed, had a good dream and didn't wake up" will work.

If I had fallen into a beer tank and drowned, I wouldn't be posting.

Dat true. But it's the others who be doing the dirty work. And I have found it's not necessarily a good thing to have 'just' one's handle as the topic. Anyways, glad you're writing in person. Or is it the copyright thief?

The post didn’t walk like a Flying Pig, talk like a Flying Pig or snort like a Flying Pig. Therefore……..

There's one on almost every forum, anybody who is in airborne law enforcement.

 

I was one myself, from 1982-1989, we were known then as Pigs in Space and we flew the Pork Chopper. All the old jokes about "pigs might fly" blah blah...

 

So you ain't Robinson Crusoe mate!

I know of an LE aircraft support unit that Calls their hangar the Pig Pin. So when they check in with the tower where they are based,  it is either to take-off from or land at the "Pig Pin."    :o

When I was in Australia we all played the "do my accent game". You kangaroo jockeys always had to go hill billy on us Americans. I would say "really? At what point in this conversation have I ever said "hey ya'll"?

Except for Dnr032..... He really does sound like he should be pickin' a banjo! :)

A Kiwi would call it "The Pug Pin". The land of the misplaced vowel.
