See my thread

Search for John Wayne and find my post. It has a link to the schedule for next week. On one night, IITS and TH&TM are showing back to back.

He bitch slaps Captain Robert Stack (actor) in the "High and the Almighty". The ultimate CRM technique. Works every time.

Hahaha...he shoulda turned around and slapped the taste out of the FE's mouth as well...just to grant him his wish.

Because you know the second John Wayne woulda walked off the flight deck, the FE woulda said to the CA, "I wished he would have slapped me like that..."

It was a DC-4, no FE. They did have a navigator though.

FE. As a FE once described himself to me as being a stagecoach driver. Seems that everytime he looked forward the only thing the could see were two horse's arses.

The 3rd guy on the flight deck in this movie was the navigator. There is no FE on a DC4. No INS, No Doppler, No nothin!

From an old guy

OK...cool...didn't know that.

He'd grant the Navigator his wish, then! :D

Actually, there were four guys on the flight deck. The fourth guy was the relief pilot.

Aye, it t'was until 1991. However, Dodie, entrusted me to keep his works alive, and that is why I have republished A Hostage To Fortune, The High and The Mighty, and Island In The Sky. Great writings from a great guy.

The paper back looks great. Dodie inscribed and mailed Islands to me recently. A perfect companion in the cockpit. Do you get up to the island often?

I'd think so. I'd need a relief pilot if I got the taste buds slapped out of my mouth by the FO while flying.

You know I'm just "running with it"...that is the visual image presented by the commercials for that movie with the Duke slapping Robert Stack. How would you make a movie like that today?

I've had to elbow a body builder student in the ribs during a flare now and then...you know the ones, the ones with the "death grip" on the yoke...so I can relate to the Duke in the slapping scene.

Good catch! I had forgooten about the younger guy in the crew. Actually the navigator was perfectly cast in this movie. If you ever were around many navs, this guy was a compilation of everyone I had known.
