It's kinda hard to hold your head up for the whole flight. I guess true LeatherNecks are our only option for this mission.

Introducing the H.U.M.A.N. A High Underwing Manual Assist Navigator.

Dual purpose: can also be used for extra thrust take off and emergency brake for short runways,but may result in excess wear and mental fatigue.

No software to go haywire.

Folds up neatly when not in use.

Low carbon footprint.

Black box (GoPro) standard on most models.

Disposable.

Replacement is simple and cheap.See your local recruiter today.

Scene that should have been in the movie "Airplane" at 1:45 and 4:05 and 5:06

"Do we have clearance Clarence?"

"Roger!""Huh?"

"Flight Two Zero Niner, you are cleared for takeoff."

"LA departure frequency One Two Three point Niner."

"Where is Roger?"

"Huh?"

Don't like this new tail gunner role, it's lacking protection!

Wingman to pilot: I'm probably only good for 30 minutes...I had two helpings of SOS (Sh*t on a Shingle) and four cups of Joe this morning. Otherwise, I may release a reign rain of terror... a literal sh*t storm if you will...brown death...

Pilot to wingman: I'm turning off your comms.
