Very Superstitious

  • Ronald Davis
  • Interview by: Tod Nicol


On one occasion, we had this Australian pilot.

Holt, he was called.

Very, very nice fellow.

And one very funny story,

he was very superstitious, as most air crew were,

and they used to do strange things before flights,

operational flights.

His particular crew used to stand against the rear wheel

of the Hampden, and have a pee together

before they took off.

A couple of days later,

there was a DRO, it's Daily Routine Orders.

The words are, I can remember to this day, were,

"Promiscuous urination against tail wheels

"will cease forthwith." (laughs)

(snorts) Very funny, but I don't think it stopped it!
