While being transported to basic training, a new enlistee of the Air National Guard accidentally opened a parachute in the rear of the C-47.
The plane was piloted by a major and a captain, and the new enlistee felt intimidated as he opened the cockpit door to confess what he had done.
Expecting to be severely chastised, he was surprised by the captain's calm response. "Well, son," he said, "if this plane goes down, that chute is yours."
