A mid-air collision involving two airmen has occurred during a top secret mission aimed at ridding Midway of an insidious Axis listening station. The following photographs reveal the true story:
It is the official finding of the War Department’s Special Committee on Spectacularly Failed Operations (WDSCSFO) that the cause of this incident was exceedingly poor communication and flying on the parts of both Lt. Wilmer “Uncle Sticky” Stickenfocker and Cpt. David “Dickie” Martinez. The blame is believed to be distributed equally.
The pilotwings of both airmen are to be posthumously revoked, their ranks similarly stripped, and, as the remains of neither man are available for the purpose, mock remains are to be constructed of both men and buried after being vigorously urinated upon.
