Etemology Military pilot type talk
To perform quick, fast, and in a hurry simulated landings. With touch and goes, all same proceedures for a landing are performed with exception that once the wheels and or arresting gear hits the deck, the craft goes to full power. Rather than coming to a complete hault as in a normal landing, the craft is airborne as quickly as it hit the deck. In this manner, touch and goes facilitate the ability to make as many runs as possible in the shortest amount of time.
Grunt Gunny: Damn Marine, what happed to your face it's all swollen?
Grunt Marine: Ah fuck Gunny, those fucking mosquitos were doing touch and goes whilst I was sleeping.
refers to the situation surrounding a narrow escape or avoidance of a difficult issue.
"So all of a sudden my girlfriend is sobbing on the couch and talking about how we're never going to get married and her family hates her! I managed to calm her down, but boy was it tense! It was touch and go for a few minutes there."
's jargon for a practice landing. You land the plane long enough to roll the wheels on the runway, then apply full power and take off again. Used to practice many landings in a short time.
"I did 8 touch-and-goes today, and boy was that crosswind rough! Any coffee around here?"
a touch and go is NOT a military term for a bad carrier landing as others maintain. there is not a standard term for that as many things can cause it.
the two most common problems that cause a pilot to be "waved off" or "go around" are landing long and missing all 3 catch (trip) wires OR not lining up the aircraft up on the carrier decks' center-line, risking a streering/braking contolled-flight-into-terrain (cfit) type accident.
by the time you are allowed to play with a $20 million dollar piece of the tax-payers money, you should be past doing a "dolphin" which is when you allow the aircraft to regain sufficient airflow over the wings that is does not stall properly and land. this is usually caused by not holding back on the stick or yoke resulting something akin to dolphins jumping out of the water in a repeated fashion. it can also result from an overreaction to an excessively hard landing. some mistake this for a touch and go. the trained observer can spot the difference in a minute by the control (or lack of thereof) of the aircraft in question.
a real touch-and-go is a term used to describe the practicing of repeated take offs and landings; hence, TOUCH down or GO around which is the most physically and coordinationally challenging thing a pilot can do. the flying between points is almost boring after awhile. its mostly procedural if you keep an eye outside the aircraft, one on the weather and one on your basic mechanicals.
on touchdowns, you basically are conf...
Prior to going down on a skank, you need to do the a finger check to confirm that her snatch is clean. If she fails the Touch, she's got to Go! Hense, Touch and Go
Kyle: So did you hook up with that Navy Air Traffic Controller last night?
Steve: Hell yeah, she was a easy! I had to do a Touch and Go on her first to make sure there was no FOD on the runway.
Waking up borderline still drunk or hazy from the night before. Feeling like you are still out of it from too much partying.
Why did I stay out so late? Now I'm touch and go at work!!
Taken from the military term for aircraft hitting the deck on a carrier and taking back off again. When your head starts bobbing from sleep deprivation. Your eyes are heavy, your head drops and you jerk awake suddenly and your head pops back up and you look around to see if anyone could tell you were asleep. Also called four-wheeling
I was sitting in advanced algebra and the room was hot, and I was still hung from the night before, I couldn't keep my eyes open at all! I was doing touch and go's the whole time, I missed the lesson.
