The Navy’s Big Dick

A couple of Naval Aviators got into hack when they drew a giant penis in the air. The Navy Times  has released the cockpit transcripts of the event.

PILOT: The balls are going to be a little lopsided.

PILOT: Balls are complete.

PILOT: I’ve just got to navigate a little bit over here for the shaft.

EWO*- Which way is the shaft going?

PILOT: The shaft will go to the left.

EWO: It’s gonna be a wide shaft.

PILOT: I don’t want it to be just three balls.

EWO: Let’s do it.

EWO: Oh, the head of that penis is going to be thick.

PILOT: Some like, Chinese weather satellite is like, “What the Fuck?”

PILOT: To get this I’m gonna go down and to the right. Then we’ll come back up over the top and try to take a look.

EWO: I have a feeling that the balls will have disapated by then.

PILOT: It’s possible.

PILOT: Oh yes, that’s fucking amazing.

EWO: That’s a big fucking dick. Dude , I’m amazed that it stayed.

Obviously, the crew thought their hijinks were auto erase, but when it lingered they knew the cat was out of the bag. By the time they landed, pictures had already gone viral.

Why the Navy is Cooler than the Air Force

MiG-28! No one’s been this close before!

That was that was the movie Topgun.  What you probably don’t know are that the boys and girls of VFC-13 are flying them (F-5N and F-5F) at Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada. The current Commander is Cdr. Adrian Siebenhaar.  His callsign is NOT “VIPER”.

VFC 13 flies in Topgun livery. How cool is that?

Fighter Squadron Composite (VFC-13) Saints is a US Navy fighter squadron that provides adversary training for U.S. Navy air wings at NAS Fallon, Nevada. VFC-13 uses “Bogey” as its main radio callsign.  The Topgun livery is just one of many color schemes that the squadron uses to simulate potential adversaries.

These include:

  • Russian Frontal Aviation
  • Russian Air Defense
  • The usual crew of Arabs.

Mikoyan, a Russian aircraft corporation, formerly the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau seems to have skipped the 28.  Maybe because of the movie.  Here’s a MiG29 of the Ukrainian Air Force.





San Diego Air and Space Museum

We were in San Diego for a family reunion at the zoo.  But on day two we took a side trip to the San Diego Air and Space Museum in Balboa Park.

Showtime 100 was destroyed by a SAM. But this is what it looked like as Cunningham and Driscoll chased Colonel Toom that day over Hanoi.

The mission of Apollo 9 was the flight test of the Lunar Module (LEM) in Earth orbit.  Commander James McDivitt, Command Module Pilot David Scott, and Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart.    

Launching on March 3, 1969, the crewmen spent ten days in low Earth orbit.

Apollo 9 is on display.


Here’s a peek inside of Apollo 9.

Word play on the airline logo PSA, like DELTA- “Doesn’t Ever Leave the Airport”, “Pure, Sober, Available” described PSA stewardesses.  In 1966, PSA offered a Las Vegas getaway for aircrew members wherein the girls crossed off  “Pure” and “Sober” from their badges.



NOT a SR-71, that’s an A-12 outside of the San Diego Air and Space Museum. Tail number 60-6933.
