I've heard of dropping in for a pint, but that's just too much
Pull up a sandbag, war story coming!
Many moons ago I was at RAF WIldenrath on a harrier squadron. While in the swimming pool we got a tannoy message that a T-bird harrier was in trouble with a control restriction. Several conflicting messages later we discovered that one of the crew had ejected and the other managed to stay with it, the force of the ejection partially clearing the control restriction. He landed the jet safely.
The point is, the guy who ejected was discovered by the rescue services enjoying a coffee at the infamous Pussycat club in Wassenberg, a well known brothel in the area! He had landed virtually in their back-yard! Now, thats the way to do it!
Wonder if the crew of this one got a free beer for missing the pub?
