"Couldn't hit the broadside of a barn"
During MSAS-32, Big Blue Gemini brought up the firstStingbat Uninhabited Combat Spacecraft (UCS) to conducttests with. During the test, the Stingbat had trouble locking onto the GINO, so Lt. Col Chris âOxâ Jones spun Big G around to present the âbroadside of a barnâ as he put it. The UCS still couldnât lock on, and instead targeted a passing satellite- several hundred miles away. âWhat a dingbat,â Ox quipped, and the nickname stuck.
