"Er, listen boss, I know you're trying to impress me with your technical ability, but honestly, I can even see where you've painted the garden hose orange and what's more, you've stuck it to the nose with blu-tac."

"And at the end of each flight we simply plug into the charger using this cable. The next morning we have enough power in the batteries to take us about 30 miles, which is quite enough for a pilot of your experience"

In the light of PN's post below:

"............. enough power in the batteries to take us about 30 miles, which is quite far enough from home for a navigator of your experience"

And when you've finished being a navigator... there'll be another "M" you'll work under, and it'll be fries, not pies, you'll be serving.

"And this cable is. .. ermm . . ..something to do with the groundcrew I think . . .. or at the very least the Air Engineer . . . . But if anyone asks you what it is, just say "GPU" in a knowing and convincing manner and then go back to your maps. . . . . .. . .Basically, as a WSO, don't go near it. Please."
