Thanks guys I knew most of them but I always though that CAP meant cover and patrol what ever base you was on and that DEAD STICK meant an aircraft without engine power.  There are several of these I have seen that I did not know but ego being what it was I was waiting for someone else to ask or volunteer the info.  Once again thanks

...and as obvious as this seems, I've had several people ask lately what "check 6" means.

It means you have an enemy behind you, usually close. 6 o'clock is to the rear of the plane, 12 o'clock is in front, 3 o'clock is to the right, etc.
