Bush the Sky Pilot

How high did he fly?

Most pilots have flying in the blood; some dream of becoming test pilots or trying out for astronaut training. I would think that would have been every pilot's dream at the height of the Apollo program, especially in Texas. I can only think something terrible must have happened to Bush to give up his wings.

Well, according to my anonymous source:

Young Lt. Bush was flying agricultural specimens cross-country, some of which he sampled.

He lost his way and before he finally ran out of fuel he decided to put it down on a road.

With hardly any cars on the road he managed to coast his aircraft into a gas station and said sloppily to the attendant, "Fill 'er up!"

The attendant just looked at him.

"I bet you don't get too many airplanes asking for a refuel," said Bush.

The attendant replied: "True, most pilots use that airport over there."
