    1. PDP = Pre departure pee [or poo].
    2. Piddle packs...we would utilize piddle packs* when I flew Seahawks in the military.
    3. Land [somewhere] and go pee [or poo].
    4. Pee [or poo] in your pants.

    *NOTE: Along the lines of “piddle packs”...I’ve never heard of “poo packs”...BUT...if I were to invent a “poo pack”, I bet I would make a boat load of coin...AND...that would mean I would buy a boat load of watches. Upon further review, I’m thinking that a “poo pack” has already been invented...it’s called a diaper...so disregard this entire *NOTE section. ::censored::

    Back in the olden days when I worked on Grumman S2E Trackers, the crew had a little funnel and a tube that went to an exit on the fuselage skin.

    One of the old timers told me that if you rotated the little dome where the tube was on the bottom of the fuselage, it would reverse the suction action and create the reverse so that if a crewie peed in the funnel, it wouldn't drain but spray around the area.

    I never tried it though.

    And when there was a sortie over ocean in extreme weather, the crew had to wear waterproof Immersion suits with rubber collars that sealed the extremities of the body, being the neck, two wrists, and the little guy (which was covered by a "modesty flap") feet were in bootees.

    A special custom strap for a much coveted watch. With multiple postings as I took so many pictures of it.

    We had the same thing in the T-34C during Navy primary pilot training. It was placarded as the “relief tube”. We were advised by our instructor pilots not to use it...and I followed that advice...which was fairly easy since our sorties in the T-34C only lasted 1.0 to 1.5 hours.
