ACE PILOT

This one has been around a few times, but a funny one.

ACE PILOT

It seems that a young man volunteered for military service during World War II. He had such a high aptitude for aviation that he was sent right to Pensacola Naval Air Station, skipping recruit training.

The very first day at Pensacola he solos and is the best pilot on the base. All they could do was give him his gold wings and assign him immediately to an aircraft carrier in the Pacific.

On his first day aboard he took off and single-handedly shot down 6 Japanese fighter planes. Then climbing up to 20,000 feet, he found 9 more Japanese planes and shot them all down as well.

Noting that his fuel was getting low, he descended, circled the carrier and came in for a perfect trap. He threw back the canopy, climbed out and jogged up to bridge.

Saluting the captain smartly he said, "Well sir, how did I do on my very first launch?"

The captain turned around, bowed politely, and replied, "You make onry one velly, velly selious mistake!"
