To the gentleman i met in town last night, i'm sorry i c*ckbloked you, however i do think the girls were onto you and one of them was my partner of 6 years...
A bit of advice if i may,... If you want to claim to be a "fighter pilot" in the RNZAF do a bit of research before heading out... We do not to my knowledge have or have ever had in the RNZAF "F-15 Golden Eagles" and we did not fly them in Iraq... (isn't golden eagle and upgrade for the F-15 or some sort of hand gun)
Also ...."my" aircraft is a rented p"A"-38 which is a single engine two seat civil trainer,... and not a twin engine twin tail warbird,.... sorry ..you started it..
Ahhh right the ROKAF plane, their display team is the Black Eagles??? - makes sense
The guy did indeed have "big cajones" i have to hand it to him he didn't back down from the story
even when he must have known he was rumbled. even said he'd ejected once!!! the balls!!!
I didn't have the heart to rip him down... i actually had fun playing along, TBH most of the people in the group still weren't aware he was bullshitting or if we still flew Spads or f-16's or something... .
However the lady did impress when she came over to the bar and said "dude you have to come over there is a guy there who thinks he's a pilot"
So i think enough of my pilot/modelling nerdiness has rubbed off on her at least to develop enough of a bullshit detector,
So if this walking tragedy of a human being was stationed in Iraq with RNZAF (1991?) that would make him 50 plus years old.... (unless he was some petri dish black op trained elite toddler pilot picked because they have no understanding or fear of death ) and if I recall correctly we only provided a couple of C-130's... and we all know most of what ejects out a of C-130 comes from the rear end!
I wonder if the BSer was the guy who rang talk-back one night claiming he flew missions over Kosovo & was owed a VC for his efforts,must admit it was bloody funny to listen to....maybe it was a full moon that night usually get a lot of weird stuff then ....still entertaining
