Subject: RE: BS: Waaaaay UP! To Alaska....
Gary once passengered up to White Mountain in a single engine Cessna. Being a pipe smoker, he arranged with the pilot that he could smoke once they had made it into the air. Gary was in the right seat, next to the pilot. There were passengers sitting behind as well, one of them a bit 'under the weather.' The pilot taxied the plane out to the runway, made his runup, rolled out, and took off. As they climbed out, Gary then lit his pipe, and no sooner was drawing on it when something 'popped'up in the engine compartment and the cabin filled with smoke.

As if that weren't bad enough, the inebriated guy sitting in back reached into the front seat, grabbed the pilot by the neck and screamed, "make him put out the pipe! make him put out the pipe!"
