Since I was a B-52 Radar Navigator and more familiar with the flight controls in that aircraft, I assumed these were co-pilot gloves. Pilots would need the directions reversed on their gloves since the throttles were on the center console. I guess they were probably issued the new pair when they upgraded. 😎

I was just wondering. Do Buff pilots have 8 fingers and need special gloves for all those fingers if they do or does each finger have to control 2 throttles each?

How about a pair of boots with rudder and brake instructions.

Buff pilots can't wear flight boots, "cause they have to use their toes AND fingers.
The rudder and brakes are the responsibility of the Altitude and Airspeed Control Officer (Co-Pilot)

It's been so long since I've been in one I can't remember, but I do remember the answer to the question, "How many pilots does it take to shingle a roof?" Only one if you slice him real thin.

Okay Wayne. You've left me with no choice. I have to tell my favorite Buff story, apocryphal no doubt, but you and the devil are making me do it.

The pattern was full of fighters at the local base when a call over the UHF came through to the tower. A passing Buff had developed engine trouble and had to shut one down. The Buff pilot declared an emergency and wanted to land.

This would require all aircraft in the pattern to either land or depart the pattern to give way to the aircraft requiring priority.

There was a pregnant pause followed by the following transmission from one of the fighters.

Ohhh! Nooo! The dreaded 7 engine approach.

Naw, they have four arms giving a total of 10 fingers.
