First pilot I was teamed with used to tell me, "after the release close your eyes and trust me." I'm still here, he must have known what he was doing.

I am sure you found out pretty quick that was a bad idea; right?

I did just what he said for the first release. From then on he made sure I had my eyes open. He told me he often wanted to close his eyes when I had to make my logged landings. The AF was hard on WSOs, we had to log at least one landing a month but they wouldn't let them log any take-offs.

With a crew of 5 - 7 there were more GiBs ("Guys In Back" for the non flyers) in a C-130 than drivers. In Fighters the WSO (Weapon System Operator) could deal with the stick monkey one on one.
