Lingo Quiz

I’ve had this idea for a while to have a fun little audience participation quiz.  Every now and then, Caleb will use some phrase, every day words and phrases that refer to something else in the pilot or pilot training world.  I’m familiar with them by this time, but if I step back, it amuses me how odd they are.  Let’s see if you can guess what they mean! (No fair if your husband is an AF pilot 😉  Put your guesses for the meanings of the following words and phrases in the comments(or in an email if you prefer), and I may send a small prize to the person who does the best.  I’ll even use each in a sentence, and will post the correct answers next week.  Good luck! 😀

  1.  Triple turn.  “I’m exhausted; I ended up having to triple turn today.”
  2. Hook a ride.  “We can’t have any more students hook or we’ll be behind the timeline.”
  3. Roll Call.  “We’re having roll call this Friday.”
  4. Arts and crafts. “Arts and crafts time.”
  5. Taco. “John Student got a taco today.”
  6. Show time.  “I can’t wait for next week’s show times.”
  7. Bold face. “John Student still doesn’t know his boldface.”
  8. Helmet fire. “The students got some helmet fire today.”
  9. Step.  “We’re stepping at 1:30.”
  10. Out and back. “I don’t need lunch today because of an out and back.”
