Arrow Air Force mechanic saves life of fighter pilot

Air Force Mechanic Saves Life of Air Force Fighter Pilot During
Horse-Back Riding Mishap

Phoenix, AZ, May 25, 2007

An Air Force Fighter Pilot with the 309th Fighter Squadron narrowly
escaped serious injury recently when he attempted horseback riding with
no prior experience. He mounted the horse, unassisted, and the horse
immediately began moving. As it galloped along at a steady and
rhythmic
pace, the pilot began to slip sideways from the saddle. Although
attempting to grab for the horse's mane he could not get a firm grip.
He
then threw his arms around the horse's neck but continued to slide down
the side of the horse.

The horse galloped along, seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider.
Finally, losing his grip, the Captain attempted to leap away from the
horse and throw himself to safety. His foot became entangled in the
stirrup, and he was at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as his
head and upper body repeatedly struck the ground. Moments away from
unconsciousness and being trampled or beaten to death, to his great
fortune an Air Force Mechanic shopping at Wal-Mart saw him and quickly
unplugged the horse.

Typical Fighter Pilot... He can fly a fighter means he can do anything and once again a Mechanic has to save his ass .
