This guy's an old school pilot. No matter what's going on you never show emotion over the radio.

Story from Tom Wolfe's The Right Stuff.

Over the skies of Korea a pilot was in trouble and knew it. He got on the radio and began screaming "There's a MIG on my tail! There's a MIG on my tail!" Another voice broke in over the radio and calmly said, "Shut up and die like an aviator."
All I can say, is that is much easier said then done.. We all wanted to be chuck yeager, but few have found their way..
