My real reason for posting was to highlight the classic statement made within.
Quote:
"Thank God it was on the ground and not in the air"!!!!

Watched a report a few days ago on the local news about a RAF Tornado locating a crashed Glider on a mountain top in the wilds of Northumbria ,the dizzy bint doing the interview seemed supprised the lads did not land immediately land and pick the chap up themselves.

We had an aircraft crash near here after what sounded a lot like a departure stall, but was actually caused by flying through a "dustless dust devil" (no really). On the news they reported it as being a "good thing that this happened so low" :rolleyes:

Aaaargh ("a" button getting worn oot !)


Bit like the one in Los Angeles which piled into a nice little neighbourhood having, arhem, run out of fuel - to which said reporter commented, "There was no fire because, luckily.........................there was no fuel on board :D

:ugh:

Luckily, they were only taxiing. But some might ask: "Have they done the knowledge, it ain't right?!"

More poignantly, rules exist for whenever there aren't traffic lights etc. for whatever reason. For example, at sea, ships give way to traffic coming from the right. Same thing for when the lights are on the blink on a French road - you give way to the right (which is why driving on the left-hand side of the road should be a criminal offence anywhere in the EU)...?! :E

Next thing you know, the authorities will be telling us that one of the planes didn't use its indicators. Or the brake lights were faulty...?! :rolleyes:

I reckon one of the pilots was texting on his mobile...:ok:

Will anyone be claiming for whiplash injuries?
