I was a medic, so for us it was Fallopian Tubes.

When I was flying Medevac, it was prop wash.

Buffer amplifier for polishing floors.

Electric hammer (400W soldering iron!)

BRT (Big Round Thing)

Did you know that filling out the paperwork for a maintenance job whose complaint is "IFF does not work in OFF position" and completing the "How malfunction" field with "Pilot error" can create some hard feelings?

The thing I learned from being a door gunner in a UH-1 when I heard my pilots talk was IFR means "I follow roads." VFR means "visually follow roads".

Sign off Pilot error, by "R2 Stick Actuator. " (Remove and replace pilot)

Also, don't forget, "keys to the aircraft."

I used to work as a MTA (military training advisor) on FMS (foreign military sales), and was "loaned" out the Royal Air Force (British), and went out to work on a Jaugar. They actually had a key to unlock the cockpit. At first, I thought they were trying to pull my leg.

Johnson Rod. Metric.

Reminds me of mechanic's responses to pilot complaints:

"Auto-Land a little rough." Response: "Auto-Land not installed on aircraft."

We would send them for a box of track balls. Or in heavy seas go find a barf meter. Even heard of some BMs falling for the seabat trick.

As John mentioned, a bucket of rotor wash.

The funniest one was sending new guys out to get a APU exhaust sample with a garbage bag.

The APU on the CH46E was a 100 hp jet turbine.

Default B1RD at 10 o' clock high!

One of the crew's main jobs was to call-out other aircraft to the pilots, and make them aware that they were in our vicinity. Especially fast-movers (jets).
As aircrew on Army CH47's, when spotting a likely bird, we used to take advantage of newby Peterpilots by calling out "you have a B1RD at 10:00 o' clock".
Bucket of Rotorwash, Roll of Flightline - all used on newbies.

6172crew - Army CH47's also have Turbine APU's.

This isn't military related but funny none the less. Years ago I worked on a sportfishing boat out of San Diego. As the FNG, they told me they needed to calibrate their radar and they needed my help. They dressed me up in a tin foil suit and tin foil hat and had me run up and down the dock waving my arms like a bird. They got a good kick out of that, as did everyone else on the dock.

One time the skipper asked me to get some red running light fluid as we were taking on bait. I went into the head, pissed in a bucket and brought it proudly to the skipper. He let out a big chuckle, patted me on the back and welcomed me to the crew.

I heard that one from some radio techs in the AF having some fun with the new guy.

During tech training in the Air Force, there was "Mattress Exchange Day." Trying to get the new guys to haul their mattresses downstairs.

One of my favorites was getting the number of a local Kentucky Fried Chicken, writing the number down on a note ("Sgt. So-and-so, Call Col. Sanders, ASAP." and sending the note via a runner to said Sgt. It was hard to keep a straight face when said Sgt. came storming in to the office asking who had written the note.

Relative bearing grease

Dress up the non-quals (newby's) in the life vest, foul weather gear and safety harness and then have them stand by under the bridge ladder in Control (where you steer the Sub) with a boat hook to pick up the Mail Buoy.

Send the non-quals up to the Machinery Room to get a Machinist's punch (some of those A-gangers would knock a newby on their butt with a good punch)

For my first assignment, I was an executive officer at the 9OG at Beale AFB. I was a butter-bar Lt filling in for a Captain and I was WAYYYYYYYY over my head.

One day, a SMSgt from maintenance called me and told me to tell the 9th OG commander that an airplane had been impounded...




Don't get ahead of me!!!




So I asked the SMSgt something really stupid: "Impounded? You mean by the Police?"

I was younger and much stupider back then...

Yeah..seen several of these. On the Fox and the Missouri we sent a guys to stand Mail Buoy watch, even had a few relieve each other.

One sent for relative bearing grease and a few for BT punches. I also sent my minions down to the BT's and MM's to get their crows tacked on.

Sent a few for Sound powered phone batteries.

The best was on the Missouri on our way to Gonzo Station. We sent an OSSN all round CIC/CEC and the bridge to get the E.M.H.O. log signed. The OOD called down to CEC to chew our butts out after he entered his E.M.H.O. findings.
