That is great, my uncle is a retired Navy pilot. We love to get him drunk and then he starts to open up with his stories. Back when he was newly retired from flying F-14's he was telling us a story that he was testing a radar altimeter and that it locked up and when he finally got it to work he let it slip how high we was, and was well above the general knowledge of the service ceiling.
He also told us that the intake of the F-8 can fit two people. He landed his F-8 on the taxiway at LAX because he was low on fuel. He buzzed some work vehicles on a highway in Texas. Him and his buddies were on an all night bender when he got called back to the ship. He told his boss that they were drunk, but his boss did not care so they flew back to the ship while still drunk. He did some bomb testing with the F-14 with dummy bombs was before they F-14's were dropping bombs. He was chewed out in front of crew but later got a pat on his back because he proved the F-14's avionics worked with dropping bombs.
