The world's tallest pilot?  (Notice the legs protruding from the wheel well)
T33_1.jpg (43014 bytes)

USAF T-33 jet trainer number R-822. This photo was probably taken at Webb AFB, Texas, 1953.

This photograph reminds me of the old Flintston's cartoon, when Fred Flintstone uses his feet to start and stop his car in.  I'm sure  this photo was a staged gag.  Were the pilots making a commentary about the cramped cockpit of the T-33?  It's slow accelleration?  The brakes?  All of the above?
