Squadron Officer School (SOS) in 2003

This video couldn't be made today.  The nudity and non-PC jokes would result in court-martial if not a firing squad.  But back in 2003 when we made it, it was actually used as an SOS recruiting video for years after we all left.

Our flight instructor was cool with our class agreeing we didn't want to play flight games and instead just wanted to enjoy ourselves.  His only request was that we call the baby ugly.  Which we did.

And we had a great time doing it.
