Navy cracks down on "Supermanning" stunt
A U.S. Navy commander who was surprised to hear that some naval crewmen were dangling out of helicopters with minimal support in a "Superman"-style pose instituted disciplinary measures to deter such activity after an officer fell to his death in the Persian Gulf.
The Norfolk (VA) Virginian-Pilot used FOIA to obtain a copy of the investigation report.
