Jeremy The Pilot
Reader Star Rating:
The next story about Jeremy.
His owner, Hank, designs and builds a small airplane for Jeremy.
Mike, the midget, is the co-pilot who falls ill during the manoeuvres.
He bails out and is injured.
Jeremy, who was trained with Megan at Cedar Point roller coaster rides, enjoys the flights and manoeuvres
Hank, his owner, took Jeremy and Megan to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; which is a museum in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
Jeremy needed some R and R, rest and relaxation, after his training at Cedar Point with Megan; she had trained Jeremy on the roller coaster rides.
On the same day Cesar Millan, a dog trainer, had taken his son to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
They all met at the Beatles exhibit and Hank asked him if he would train Jeremy.
After they haggled over the price Cesar agreed to work with Jeremy for two days.
Jeremy enjoyed the trip to the museum very much, even though he had to be on a leash.
The next day Cesar came to Strongsville Ohio and they drove to the Robert D Shea Field where Jeremy's plane was in a hanger at the airport.
Cesar taught Jeremy to balance on his hind legs and walk.
He also trained him to operate the plane's doors and how to grasp the control stick, move it up down and sideways.
Jeremy knew how to start the engine with his paw prints on the panel and bark twice for take off and bark three times to land.
He soon became very familiar with the cockpit, the radio and the controls.
The plane also had a copilot seat with controls and functions; Mike, who was a licensed pilot working for the post office became the copilot.
Jeremy and Mike climbed aboard the small plane and buckled up; he liked Mike's outlook, as he was more down to earth.
Jeremy placed his front paws on the start panel and the engine started.
The hair on the back of his neck stood up, he was startled by the noise and covered his ears. Once the warm up was over the engine noise became smoother.
Mike placed a helmet with earflaps on Jeremy and it reduced the noise.
He barked twice, woof-woof and the plane took flight.
When they reached 200 feet Hank took over control of the plane from the ground with his remote controller.
They flew the basic straight and level flight, turns, climbs and descents.
After completing the basic manoeuvres Mike signalled him to go down.
Jeremy pressed on the push-to-talk radio button and barked 3 times.
Jeremy had enjoyed the flight and was a happy dog.
The 2nd flight was to be with manoeuvres, loops, rolls, barrel rolls and wing overs.
Megan kissed Jeremy and wished him good luck.
Mike and he climbed aboard, fastened their safety belts and put on their aviator helmets.
Jeremy placed his paw prints on the start panel and the engine started.
This time he was calm and relaxed during the warm up.
Jeremy barked twice and they took off without a hitch.
Hank radioed that he would guide them into a loop and then a roll.
The plane functioned perfectly and Mike radioed that "It was great and Jeremy was happy."
Next they do barrel rolls (BR) and a wing over (WO).
Hank selects BR and WO on his remote and pushes start.
The plane does these manoeuvres without a problem.
Mike didn't feel well after all of the manoeuvres so Jeremy watched him closely landing the plane. Megan was worried so called for Mike's doctor.
The exciting basic fighter manoeuvres (BFM) were scheduled for the 3rd flight the next day, but this time the day was cloudy and windy.
They arrived at the airport and checked out the plane to ensure their safety.
Mike did not feel enthusiastic about get on board this time, but did not say anything.
He was wearing a parachute.
Jeremy looked at pictures of the manoeuvres and was very excited to get going.
Mike looked worried as Jeremy started the turboprop.
Jeremy barked twice and they climbed up to 1000 feet, this height needed for these difficult manoeuvres.
BFM are moves made by fighter pilots during dog fighting, in order to gain an advantage over the opponent.
The offensive manoeuvres are named barrel roll attack, yoyo, and lag roll.
The defensive ones are called yoyo defence, tightening turn, and reversing turn.
The last ditch move is the difficult defensive spiral.
The first move was the barrel roll attack followed by the yo-yo.
The plane performed well, but Mike was feeling woozy.
Next the yo-yo defence and the reversing turn moves.
Jeremy was a 'happy camper' harnessed in the pilot seat.
Lastly, the defensive spiral and the plane functioned perfectly.
At the end of this set Mike was really feeling ill.
Suddenly the copilot's door opened and Mike tumbled out and fell down to earth.
Jeremy remained cool and did not panic; he moved over to the copilot's seat, closed the open door, then took over the controls and proceeded to land the plane safely.
As he fell out of the plane Mike managed to pull the ring on his parachute and it opened.
He was unable to guide the parachute though, with the strong winds blowing, so landed on his back and was knocked unconscious.
Megan watched Mike's descent and ran in the direction the wind was pushing him.
She ran for mile and located him near highway 71.
She took out her phone and called 911, an ambulance arrived in a few minutes.
The paramedics placed him on a stretcher and took him to the nearest hospital.
When he landed Jeremy opened the copilot's door and happily jumped out of the aircraft barking gleefully.
He jumped up into Hank's arms and licked his face several times.
Hank and Megan were amazed that little Jeremy had landed the plane.
They then drove to the hospital where Mike was being treated.
A week later Mike was released from the hospital.
A month later Megan and Hank were married.
Mike was the best man and Jeremy had the rings in his jacket pocket.
