Whilst clearing some very old emails I came across this one and it still makes me laugh ~ or at least the contents do, pasted below for a Friday afternoon chuckle to share :D Whether actually true or not they bring a smile!

After every flight Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a

"gripesheet," which tells mechanics about problems with the

Aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their

Repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before

The next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a

Sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints

Submitted by Qantas' pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded

(marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.
P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement

S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.

S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.

S: Something tightened in cockpit

P: Dead bugs on windshield.

S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute

Descent.

S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.

S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.

S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.

S: That's what friction locks are for.

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode

S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.

S: Suspect you're right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.

S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny. (I love this one!)

S: Aircraft warned to: straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.

S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.

S: Cat installed.

And the best one for last...............

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget

Pounding on something with a hammer.

S: Took hammer away from midget.


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Lucky you Adrian I've got yesterday's shoot to do today as we had to reschedule.
I was asked to see the bank manager yesterday and as any normal person would feared the worse but know he was nice to me and even though I haven't asked wants to give me money, I've no problem with that it's the paying back bit I don't like, but now I find myself looking at 5D Mk3's.
