Pilot Talking Rules

Pilot Talking Rules - Military humor

The only three things a wingman should ever say are:

“Two’s up.”

“Lead, you’re on fire.”

“I’ll take the fat chick.”

And in a multi-place aircraft, there are only three things the copilot should ever say:

“Nice landing, Sir.”

“I’ll buy the first round.”

“I’ll take the fat chick.”

A new copilot on a bomber is only to say these three things and to otherwise keep his mouth shut and not touch anything:

“Clear on the right.”

“Outer (marker) on the double” (indicator)

“I’ll eat the chicken.” (Crew meals consisted of one steak and one chicken to avoid possible food poisoning of the cockpit crew).
