This is a question Bullshit and Bullshitters

We've had questions about lies and liars in the past, but this time we're asking about the sort of fantasist who constantly claims they've got a helicopter in the garden or was "second onto the balcony at the Iranian Embassy siege". Tell us about the cobblers you've been told, or the complete lies you've come out with.

Thanks to dozer for the suggestion

My mum and the RAF
My mum firmly believes that when she drives over the mountain passes of Snowdonia where the RAF pilots fly regularly to and from the Anglesey base, that they wave to her and have even poked out their tongues in a cheeky manner. Unfortunately due to being a rather gullible child and obedient daughter, I did wave at aeroplane all the time.

My now husband soon put a stop to it. He has an excellent bullsh*t detector especially when it comes to his mother-in-law.

So, what you're saying here is that your husband is a controlling killjoy?

No he's not a controlling killjoy
He just told me to stop waving at planes now I'm an adult. I've never had anyone wave back yet so I'm starting to think it might be bullshit.

facts from the sky
Some years ago I was flying hawks up that way. There was a local farmer who'd painted "piss off biggles" on his roof.

Of course, for about 3 years his barn roof became the most visited place short of the bar and the clap clinic by pilots on low level training. Silly sod...

And yes, we do wave back and (yes you can see us sticking our tongues out too, if you happen to be inside our oxygen masks) so tell your husband to stop being such a misery.

I thought
you meant in a falconry type way when you actually meant Hawk airyplanes like the Red Arrows use. I'm such a fuckwit.

In that case, you are or were a Red Arrow pilot AICMFP.

sadly not
I have flown *with* the red arrows, sadly was never *in* the red arrows


But seeing that picture has completely made my night (in a way a spreadsheet with 983 tabs strangely couldn't)

I've never had a wave back.
You have given me hope that this isn't bullshit after all.
