MEMORABLE "April Fools" pranks...

I thought it might be fun to post-up some memorable pranks, so here goes:

I was a pilot in the Airforce in Ottawa, Canada back in 1970. April 1st, I'm driving in to the Airbase when the morning radio guy announces that the government has decided that ALL major Canadian airports will have to be relocated because "all the lift" has been used-up near their present locations.

I got all pi$$ed-off, arrived at my squadron, grabbed a coffee, then started a rant about this "new program" to whoever would listen.

A navigator looked me in the eye, said - "Forgotten your 'theory of flight' Ed?", and winked at me...!

onewizard, Lours_Polaire and Arion like this.

Always knew it was the navigators that kept the pilots straight.

The only thing which makes airplanes fly is .... money. The higher or faster you want to go, the more money you need, too.
