THANKS STUTLER!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)


Hey, I always thought it was funny. A nice pair of new black boots filled to the rim. What else was there to do.


The guilty party (at an American Embassy party while deployed to Doha during the Gulf War). If you see this man, feel free to fill his boots with water...

Navy buddy told me they used to have the new guys go behind a running engine with Hefty trash bag to get an exhaust sample for the NDI lab. Thought that one was great!

After an over g. "Airmen go get me an over g-string out of support".
We also did the exhaust sample only took it further by photoshopping a sample form. The kid took it to NDI, they SENT HIM BACK saying his paperwork wasn't in order, haha, love it when they play along.

We had one especially gullible newbie believing that the "new" light carts could be turned on and off by voice control. We had a guy get inside and run the controls while newbie would tell it to start, stop, and turn the lights on and off. The next night when the pro super told him to start a unit up it was great watching his face! We kept suggesting, "maybe if you yell louder it'll work"!

This same guy fell for checking the output of the vortex generators, getting the yard of flight line, and the bucket of prop wash.

Hmmm, wonder if I know you. :lol:

We had a guy in Phase (George AFB, CA in the late 80s) who could do a perfect imitation of our squadron commander. He got on the phone and called over to the next Phase dock wanting to talk to one of the newbies. Claiming to be Col. xxxxx he instructed the newb he had a mandatory appointment to the OB clinic at the hospital for an exam.

Priceless!

When I was at Moody on mids I would politely fill up water cups and put them up in the Hydralic doors for dayshift to find when they checked thier servicing. Lurch because of Scott and his stunts I took my boots up the intake with me..

One of the other crew chiefs had pissed me off while we were in Doha. So while he jumped the intake, I took his boots and put them in Col. Mathers travel pod. I can still see him looking for his boots, while Col. Mathers was making his climb out on his way back to TJ.

I know this is an old bar trick, but I had one guy do the 'coordination test' with a quarter and a pencil, draw circles around the quarter on a piece of paper, and then roll the quarter down your face. We then staged a meeting with him and the shop chief who proceeded to chew him out on 'improper and faddish styles' until he couldn't hold back his laughter anymore. The look on that airman's face after he realized what I did could've melted steel, but the whole shop got a good laugh :lol:

This just happened this drill weekend.

It's flu shot weekend. We told our Fresh from Tech school kid that he better be ready cause they have to give the first flu shot in ur bag (think about it) cause it gets in the blood stream faster. We had a nurse call over sat afternoon to remind this airman to shave when he gets home cause it makes it easier. That night he asked one of his buddies who is an SP, if this was true. I am so glad he played along. So the next day i got tasked to take him over to get his shot, cause i needed mine too. We walk over to Ops and medic's are set up in the foyer with big picture windows all around. We walk in and there is a guy getting his shot in the arm, he asked why he is getting his here, i said well u get the boosters in the arm. It's only your first shot in the bag. He bought that. We walk a few more steps and he goes, they are goin to do it here in the open with female's watching and stuff. I said don't worry it's quick and they don't mind, cause they see it every winter. He bought that. he walks up and starts to undo his belt, and that capt said "what the hell are u doing???" he turned white as and said "You mean I spent 2 hours shaving for nothing?"

That made it around base in like an hour. And we laughed forever.

I might just laugh forever on that one too. That sure beats looking for the 'keys to the jet'...
