Hey Eng - History of the phrase

Recommended Posts

I've been researching the phrase "Hey Eng!" for my blog. I've contacted the Smithsonian and the USAF Library with no luck. Ideally I'd love to know when the phrase was first used and by who. I know it was used during Vietnam but what about earlier? Any help would be great. Thanks!

I spent almost 12 years in airlift in C-130s, C-141s and C-5s and never heard it. Nor did I ever hear Hey Load. These are both post-Vietnam terms and most likely originated on the Internet.

I'm with Sam. I never heard that phrase used during my time, Oct. 1964 thru Oct. 1968.
