You air force guys ever talk about this dude named "Jody"? The guy who is !@#$ing your wife or girlfriend while you're on TDY or deployed.

What about the juicy girls in Korea? Yall ever hear of black syphilis? In the Army, it was told that if you ever caught it, you were quarantined; meaning you stayed in Korea for the rest of your life.

Here's a "legend" from the Buffalo area, pretty sad and disturbing actually;

During the (l think it was) 1985 Blue Angels airshow at Niagara Falls there was a mid air collision that resulted in the death of one of the solos (RIP). It is rumored that he was actually decapitated from the wing of the other jet and that his head was found far from the crash site... It is a fact that the crash happened but the decapitation is probably false.

I heard that if a crew member was forced to eject from the Phantom twice that his flying career was over. Something to do with possibility of spinal damage if forced to eject again. Any truth to that or is that just another Urban legend?


I heard it was 3 times. Knew a Viper driver who had punched out twice (had a jet land on top of him at Luke and a motor eat itself on takeoff in Dahran.) Not surprisingly his call-sign became "deuce." He was still flying after the second one...
