Nah, you're just asking for bad luck with that name. Logical's the pilot, it's his plane, he should name her. You'll be comforted to know that I am the engineer on this rig. Does anyone know where the dipstick is? Does this thing take regular, unleaded or ethyl?

Logical is flying this bird, with Denise as copilot? (we'll never get off the ground, or someone is going to get murdered in the cockpit. Pending the upcoming court martial, I believe Jim, as the top turret gunner/engineer, better be prepared to get behind the controls)

Hoover as bombardier? (he gets to yell "bombs away", and that simply sucks)

kcnut as tail gunner? (pilot to tail gunner; say again. Say Again!)

me and cntrygal manning the waist? (good call; you got two soldiers manning the .50s).

Ecto-I as ball turret gunner? (sucks to be you, man!)



...checking the headspace and timing on his M2.

And who let you on this aircraft? CPT Logical is gonna kick your butt when he finds out.

I'm just inspecting the rig (ie: stealing your beer). I think I know where the other waist gunner is, though. She's wasted, quite literally, at the bar. She's quite the party soldier.

I kinda assumed the tail gunner had been mortally wounded.

That explains that loud "gong" sound I heard, followed by a loud thump. No wonder I couldn't find the shovel.

Keep an eye on Phobia; he's cannibalizing parts. I'm going to check on Ecto-I...I saw him crawling into his ball turret with something rolled up in his hand.

When do I get to blow crap up.

Logical
01-22-2004, 12:42 AM
OK troops I have finished your pre-combat fitness reports so listen up.

Copilot memyselfi - Skated through training with verbal skills that confused and confounded the top brass. Prior to reporting to station she disappeared and I had to report her Absent WithOut Leave. An unconfirmed report has her chasing Rommel VonGannon across country as he seeks to forget the intercepted communiques he was responsible for in the Germans biggest battle of the year. Rumors are he and his men are so disconsolate his army has collapsed and commanding general was relieved of command due to a revolt. All nominated officers for the command are turning down the promotion and VonGannon is seeking to be relieved of his commission to join the Italian command. Denise is seeking him out supposedly to console. If she succeeds we will be forced to court martial her for aiding and abetting the enemy.

Bombardier Hoover - Hoover went on a drunken binge then reported back spouting some nonsense about leading Platoon Sgt Kerry to victory in Iowa. He is coming around now screaming about he wants to blow crap up. This is the kind of attitude I expected from the Bissel master.

Navigator The Bad Guy - Lost already, WTF is up with that we have not even left the ground. I was told that this young lad had a temper and could be led off course if not kept focused. I will need to work on that.

Engineer JimNasium - Nasium is a trooper but his sense of humor is missing in action and we cannot get rid of that little dog that keeps following him around. He keeps mumbling that he wants to be called Davey but he is sort of wooden so I think I will just call him Blockhead.

Radio Op. BigChiefDave - Belligerant and tough he keeps yelling silence to our tail gunner and telling me that we are all in trouble if we do not teach him how to communicate. Sparky as I now call Dave is a great Wizzo but I will have to remind him who is in command fairly often well as soon as he gets out of that cat house.

Tail Gunner kcnut - You have all heard of the Windtalkers with the Army and how successful they have been. Well we have our own man with a unique language Mr Nut or Nutjob for short. I cancelled the order for encryption gear and instead just requisitioned decoder rings for my crew. Nutjob is enthusiatic and keeps talking about how he is faster than a Blitzkrieg fly whatever the f*ck that is, I believe he was dropped on his head at birth but he works hard and he makes us laugh.

Ball Turret Gunner Ecto-I - Ecto is kind of ghostly and fades in and out but is no apparition when he is on he scares the shit out of others. I just wish he would clean up that gooey shit he leaves everywhere he goes.

Right Waist Gunner Warrior5 - Dude is hard core Army, how he ever ended up in this mans Army Air corp is anyones guess but he is dead nuts with his gun and sprays his shots liberally. He is good with the 50 caliber as well.

Left Waist Gunner cntrygal - First in her training class who would have known she was such a party animal. She has been drunk since we arrived in country and has hit on every swinging dick in this mans Army Air Corp. I know we can rely on her to lay em dead.

Warrior5
01-22-2004, 10:23 AM
kcnut is our own personal Windtalker...hilarious! Have you considered switching kcnut to radio operator?

How'd did a straight-shootin' tanker end up in a B-17 you ask? First off, this is the <B>Army</B> Air Corps! Secondly (and most importantly), I got tired off 88 rounds coming through my Sherman at Kasserine Pass (wanna see my scars?).

Keep beating on the Squadron S1 to get LT Gump on board, and please don't ask me to clean up the ball turret. BTW, I know where the quick-release pin is on that thing if it starts getting too heavy.

- tailgunner died (kcnut).
- newbie Jenny Gump assigned to waist gunner.
- moved ball turret gunner Ecto-I to tail gunner.
- moved me from waist gunner to ball turret.
- co-pilot (Denise) is still AWOL.
- Hoover still sucks.

Q1: is there a heater in the ball turret?
Q2: how many latrines are on this plane?
