For a bit more on this story:

---EDIT---
Had a Telegraph story there first but the Air & Space is a bit more fleshed out.

900 hours on FA-18's? How comes?


Airplanes are now built to carry a pilot and a dog in the cockpit: the pilot's job is
to feed the dog, and the dog's job is to bite the pilot if he touches anything...
