Cruise control

While enroute back home to Fort Bragg one summer day, I stopped at Fort Campbell for gas. I noticed a Chinook being towed into the hangar. The front of the aircraft was in dire need of repair and the whole thing generally looked like an extra in the movie ‘Twister’. I asked a maintenance type standing nearby what had happened. He told me that the lieutenant had set the ‘cruise control’ and then went in the back to make a sandwich.
