Apocryphal Tales

We've all heard them. The stories that we all love to regale but rarely, if ever, actually know the true origins.

So I thought I'd start this thread as a way for us to tell those tall stories that we all love and see if we can actually get to the truth behind them. That way, in future when we tell the stories, we can say with authority when and where they happened! Here's a couple for starters, that I've heard but am unsure of their origins:

1. Lightning gets airborne during ground run with engineer on board.
2. Transport aircraft returning from the Falklands where the Captain got in trouble for informing the female passengers that they were all ugly again.
