Third World Problems.....................
Pilot (screaming): CLIMB! YOU STUPID PIECE OF JUNK! CLIMB! CLIMMMMB!!!
Monkey (howling): CLIMB??? WHERE??? THERE ARE NO TREEEEEES!!!
I love that story, its both the story and the delivery. Picture a smaller version of Tyron Smith that is a full Colonel in the Air Force saying “the crew chief busts into the cockpit screaming THE MONKEYS ARE LOOOOOOOOSEEEE!!!!!
He was a B52 Nav working in acquisition, his old Squadron CO used to fly 141s on supply runs between Vietnam and Guam back in the day. One day they were bringing cages of monkeys back for research or something. When the crew chief busted into the cockpit they screamed obscenities at each other until they realized no one was going back to try to get the monkeys into the cages again. Being an Officer, the pilot said “Screw it, we all stay up here and it’s the ground crew’s problem when we land”.
Wrong. The steering in those planes is controlled by exposed cables. Soon the monkeys are swinging on the cables and its making the plane pitch and dip so the pilot is fighting like crazy to keep it on track. They are hours away from land. The crew chief is now screaming “THE MONKEYS ARE GOING TO KILL US!!! THE MONKEYS ARE GOING TO KILL US!!!!”
In one of those flashes of inspiration that only comes near death, the pilot has the idea to climb to altitude that will make the monkeys go into hypoxia while they are on oxygen. When the monkeys pass out the crew chief and copilot put them in the cages again and wrap the locks with like a foot of duct tape.
If I had taped COL Robinson and put that story on Youtube, I would be a wealthy man right now.
Speaking of monkeys.....
Alcoholic killer monkey leaves one man dead and 250 injured after going on rampage when his booze supply dried up
why were monkeys on an Air Force flight to begin with?
Monkeys and cows have the status of god in India so don’t mess with em
Ya can't trust Ugandan monkeys.
But ... but ... how does that affect me, a handsome man?
