loadie

loady

1. slang A shortening of "loadmaster," the crew member of an aircraft responsible for loading and unloading aerial cargo. I'm hoping be a loady when I join the Airforce—that way I shouldn't have to face much direct fighting. After being honorably discharged in '84, my father got a job as a loady for a civilian airline.
2. slang A person who is frequently or constantly intoxicated with drugs or alcohol. I used to party with Tom back in college, but I gave drugs up once I got a real job. He's still just a loady, though, from what I hear.

At last came a handheld red light from the loadie. We all joined in with a loud scream: `Red on, red on!"
The loadie's light changed to green and he shouted: "Green on!" He moved back as we all shouted to ourselves: "Ready!" We rocked forward, trying to scream above the roar: "Set!" Then we rocked back.
He flashed a red light at us and the driver shouted: "That's it, let's go." Our vehicle edged forward then the Previa bumped up the ramp as if we were driving onto a cross-Channel ferry and one of the loadies signalled us to a stop.
