Joke #1 - In the event of an uncontrolled spin, the pilot could pull the Emergency Stabilization Lever, located just on the front of the control column. However, there were whispers in the air corps that, should you pull the ESL too often, it could result in a total loss of all forward visibility, rendering the pilot effectively blind.
Joke #2 - No need to ask if he's enjoying the flight.
Joke #3 - A rare candid view of Chuck's Yeager.
Joke #4 was airlifted to us from Fil. Thanks, Fil! - The 2nd annual Pasadena Steam Punk Parade was a star-studded gala. TV's Patrick Stewart is seen here commandeering the airship Enterprise down Rose Avenue. Steam me up, Scotty!
Joke #5 flat-apiraled in from Misterfancyhotballs_2. Thanks, MFHB2! - Yeah, here's an old one: "This wheel is drivin' me nuts". It was right there, I couldn't not do it.
Also joke #6 from Misterfancyhotballs_2. That's two-fisted flight stick fun! -Floyd always took things literally, when he heard the term "shaft drive" - he just had to see what it was all about. Eventually things took a turn for the worst.
