“Fighter Pilot, And A Bastard”
I had the pleasure of having an old friend drop by last week. By old, I mean we haven’t caught up since my wedding and it’s been too damned long kinda old. We’ve kept in touch through Facebook and all, but sometimes that’s not really like old times.
You see Mark and I used to be roommates in college. When the avgas was free (at least to us) and when we didn’t care that we actually had to pay back those student loans. Mark went on to have a distinguished career as a Marine Helicopter Pilot, and I went on to well – write an aviation blog.
We were comparing cool aviation stuff that we had run into on the net. The iPad was blazing with all sorts of wings and things.
Then I asked him if the Marines drank Jeremiah Weed (http://www.jeremiahweed.com), which is a favorite of Air Force Fighter Pilots.
“Only Air Force Pukes Drink that crap” he replied.
Then he asked me if I had heard of Dos Gringos (http://www.dosgringosrocks.com).
Then he explained. Two fighter pilots who sing and have a since of humor. There pretty good at singing and pretty damned funny to boot.
Not only do they drop real bombs, they like to drop F-Bombs too. So if you’re going to listen, wait till the kiddos goto bed.
Their songs have aviation written all over them (here is just a sample, check them all out at http://www.dosgringosrocks.com/music.html):
- I DROPPED THE BOMB
- JEREMIAH WEED
- THE PREDATOR EULOGY
- I’M A PILOT
- JDAM BLUES
- THE WINGMEN
- GOING IN FOR GUNS
- I WISH I HAD A GUN JUST LIKE THE A-10
- I WANT TO TAKEOFF FROM A CARRIER
