What if pilots have to mitricate during the flight, is there a pee tube? Or do they just go?

May the wind sweep you off your feet, and guide you to the distant stars.

Watch out for the yellow stream coming out that hose on the bottom of the fuselage../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Prior to America's entry into the war, the US sold Britain some early model B-17s. The Brits hated them because of their tendence for the bomb doors to stick. Extensive research eventually solved the problem: The crew were relieving themselves down the bomb bay expecting the urine to drain through the cracks but instead it froze at the altitude the B-17s flew causing the doors to stick.

Planes generally had relief tubes.

I know not what course others may choose, but as for me, give me computer games or give me television!

RAF bombers like the Lancaster had a toilet known as an Elsan. There are tales (true or not Im not quite sure) that during particularly violent evasive maneuvers, the Elsan could break free of its mount and fly around the fuselage. This was rumoured to be the cause of some nasty (if comical) injuries.

Someone posted a link with a Finnish pilot interview and the dude said they flew their Curtiss P~36 (*I think?) and they pee into a tube over Soviet's Kronstadt naval base (on the Finnish map so we can sim this for ourselves)

I'm sure some hose and an empty bottle would suit the figher pilots, just make sure that the parts are taped in tight.

Although, when bailing out things could get sticky /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Feel sorry for those who were mitricating and accidentally pushed forward on the stick, only let to let the negative gs splatter the holy water unto themselves. I wonder if it ever happened.
