I look at these guidelines as technique - not procedure.
Doley went with collar up. I went with collar down. Technique only.
I never would have survived UPT without these guys.
After a certain number of drinks, I could blend in with the wall paper.
Prior to our break in training for the Christmas and New Year's holidays, we had a celebratory "Tweet (Almost) Complete" dinner and party with the instructor pilots of Dagger, the world's greatest flying training flight. The framed picture of tiger and cub presented to Captain Wright symbolized the squadron patch of the 37th Flying Training Squadron at Columbus Air Force Base, the Bengal Tigers. The dark blue scarf on the right side of the frame is the scarf worn by our instructors. The patches on the scarf (from top to bottom) are those of Warhawk flight, Dagger flight, and T-37 Check Section.
Before leaving for Christmas vacation, the students and instructors of Dagger flight held a holiday party in downtown Columbus. When Doley's flat-top was fully coiffed up, five people could press their heads up against his at the same time.
Back in the day, I had me some ups. I still have that shirt.
This FAIP party trick never got old! Imagine if he had a glass eye.
Kenny brought Hamlet back to Columbus after Christmas. As an honorary member of UPT Class 88-07, Hamlet wore a pink scarf. This picture also shows that our caution orange fridge was so bright its reflection could be seen in a filthy linoleum floor.
