Nah, its when they cook it that you need to worry about the smell.

Febreze works wonders though.

Probably non-smoker of cigarettes... but I bet your application says nothing about smoking pole. He'll probably turn out to be the President of the local NAMBLA crew. You might want to see if Hustler knows the guy. Nice one btw.

Speaking of such things, I thought I'd heard the best name ever the other day. There is a Petty Officer in a local squadron named... McNutt. That was until I met Ensign Poon. The guy is 3rd generation American, but his great-great whatevers came from China. His callsign was assured a long time ago... "Cakes".

I still want to know what you did to earn your callsign.

For the most part. There are really 3 ways to earn your callsign:

1: Break a really expensive piece of military hardware. For example: A guy who takes a cat-shot with his parking brake set will be called "skids" or "rimjob".

2: Something about you personally, your name or the way you look, or your personality. For example:
John "Morecow" Bell
Adam "Notso" Swift

3: During a port-call, get really hammered and do something stupid... might involve lady-boys. Example:
Mike "DASH" Jones *Anytime you see a callsign in all caps, it stands for something... in this case "Dumb *** **** himself".

Callsigns aren't what they used to be though. In the last 2 years, Naval Aviation has undergone a massive pussification. There have been callsign "reviews" where skippers are required to change the callsigns of anybody who has one found to be "offensive". And not offensive to him because earning your callsign is part of our warrior culture... but rather offensive to some liberal bitch reporter who is out for her 15 minutes. The powers that be are flushing our pride down the toilet for the most part. You can see it in Ready Rooms and on the Deckplates. The "fun" part of being in the military in general is slowly being bled away. Special forces has still managed to put a big **** you to the proponents of political correctness, but they're the only ones. The rest of us are very quickly losing our edge.

They're even geting involved with callsigns?!?!?!?

I thank GOD I was in Naval Aviation prior to Tailhook. There were no women on carriers in those days . . . just future Miata drivers.

That's too bad. I guess that Caption (?) of the USS Enterprise being shitcanned for his "inappropriate" youtube videos is part of the pussification. I am disappointment.


He even warns the viewers "The Captain and Admiral no nothing of the content of this video and therefor should not be helled accountable" and "if your easily offended don't watch".

I know virtually nothing about carrier air-ops, but a stupid question: will a typical carrier-based aircraft even reach V2 with the parking brake set? I realize that the cat is a mighty beast, I'm just trying to picture what that would look like.

I'd imagine it would involve lots of tire smoke, the sound of metal being forced into a shape it shouldn't be in, and somebody's career taking a thrashing.

And, yes, there will be no issue whatsoever with the aircraft reaching flying speed (don't use the term V2 on tactical jets).

Interesting call signs . . .:

"Boom Boom": Was so tensed up on his first trap that he landed with the brakes applied. This was in a TA-4J (no anti-skid system).

"Vapes": Damn near ran out of fuel during exercises at Fallon, NV in an F/A-18A.

"Blazer": Made a wrong turn while taxiing one night and ended up in the grass (F/A-18C).

"Pid": First name Stu.

It goes on and on.

Ok, I grant you it'd be meaningless on a cat launch.

What's the official term for minimum takeoff speed in a tactical airplane?
