Nothing makes Vietnam fun like a broken toilet and some whimsy.
#5. U.S. Navy Sailors Toilet-Bombed Vietnam
This literal stink bomb was fitted onto [Commander Clarence “Bill”] Stoddard’s plane, then the flight deck crew stood between the aircraft and the ship’s air boss to block his view of the special payload as Stoddard took off. When he arrived at the target area, Stoddard read off his ordinance list to the flight controllers — ending with “and one code name Sani-Flush” — and then taught a toilet how to fly. After turning and almost striking his aircraft (he didn’t teach it very well), it plummeted to earth, reportedly whistling the whole way down.
