In a bar, Mulder hears aircraft fly overhead and glasses on the shelves are shaking. The barmen:
— F-15 Eagle pulling about four g's. Those boys think they are such hotshots. Get a few drinks in 'em, you'd think it was them up there flapping their wings.
The X-Files, TV series

That means "when they get drunk they behave as if it was they who flew in the sky without any aircraft", am I right?
Thanks.

    Yes, that's what it sounds like.

    (Not necessarily when they're drunk drunk but even when they've just had enough to loosen their tongues.)
