once is a precedent, twice is a habit, three times is a custom of the RAF.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

If it is raining it will continue or stop.
If it is sunny in UK it will rain.

Squipper porn...

If your parachute fails, its not the fall that will kill you, just the sudden stop at the end

If at first you don't succeed, give up at once.

The only acceptable excuse for running out of fuel is:- bullet holes.

Everybody talks about the weather, but no one ever does anything about it.

No matter what goes wrong, there is is someone who knew it would.

The female is deadlier than the male.

The higher up the tree the monkey climbs.... the more you see his ugly side.

Dumb breeds dumb.

Of course I will still love you in the morning - (and others that are probably not suitable for a public forum)

The job's not finished until the paperwork has been done!

Three things of no use to a pilot:
  • Fuel on the ground
  • Runway behind you
  • Height above you

Child on a flightdeck visit: "When I grow up I want to be a pilot".
Captain: "Sorry, you can't do both".

The 4 rules of flying: 1. Don't crash. 2. Don't break the aeroplane. 3. Don't p**s off the locals. 4. Don't get caught.

My favourite:

If you keep doing what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got.

Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.

If something hasn't broken on your helicopter, it's about to.

We were told, "Laugh lads, things could be worse".
So we laughed, ans sure enough things got worse.

Half-height half-blind half-cripple, pickled in brandy.

Sounds about right.
