Gangsters in the Sky

Doesn’t everybody like to hear a tall tale that may be true and may be just a tall tale? A hundred years ago when something was maybe true, maybe not, it was called a humbug . . . . . It could not be proved false, but it really stretched the imagination to believe it as true. My favorite contemporary humbug is a story told to me by a friend from Boston. With his thick New England accent he told me about a fellow in New York City who made a living by betting in neighborhood bars. Many of the bars would serve pizza, and this fellow would bet any amount of money that he could convince another fellow to wager that he could completely devour a large pizza with only 13 bites. If you aren’t familiar with New York style pizza, it is large, of course round, and with a very thin crust . . . A whole pizza would be sliced into 8 or so pieces that would each take a normal person a couple of dozen bites to consume . . . No one could eat all 8 pieces in only 13 bites . . . . But once the bet was made, the fellow would instruct the cook to leave the pizza in one piece, without slicing it . . . . He would then roll it up like a large burrito and beginning at one end stuff as much as he could in his mouth and bite it off the roll . . . Thirteen bites later the pizza was gone and the fellow had a full belly and drinking money for the night. I am not sure if that story is true or is only a humbug . . . And in the beginning of this airplane adventure there is a tale told that might just be a humbug . . . Or maybe it will come true before the show is over. Pilots of the bi-wing airplanes of the 1930’s are enjoying an evening at the Cat’s Paw nightclub and one of them tells a story about a fellow who fell out of the open cockpit of a bi-plane . . . But before he could fall to his death, the pilot of the bi-plane swooped down and flew under the falling fellow and he landed gently on the top wing of the bi-plane and lay there until the very soft landing. The pilots in this story work for the border patrol in search of gangsters smuggling hot goods across the border, and before the story is over you will enjoy more great aerial photography of early airplanes in battle than you have ever seen before, and the leading pilot will be unconscious in the front seat of a bi-plane of a gangster who vows to take him high in the air and then fly upside down so that the border patrol pilot will fall to his death. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the ride.
