Ten Great Tweets From Chuck Yeager

Task & Purpose: The 10 Greatest Tweets From 93-Year-Old Airman Chuck Yeager

World War II fighter ace Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier 70 years ago. Now he tweets hilarious shit.

Air Force Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager has had an epic career. During World War II, he flew 64 missions and decimated 13 enemy planes. Though he was shot down during a mission in France, he evaded capture using the French Underground. When he returned home after the war, he was among several pilots to test the experimental Bell X-1 rocket plane, and became the first human to break the sound barrier in October of 1947.

Now at 93, he has revealed yet another talent aside from being a record-holding pilot: sarcastic tweeting.

Though there are hundreds of funny quips, we pulled 10 of the greatest replies ever from Chuck Yeager’s Twitter.
