They are totally useless for aviation with the cuffs sewn together like that.

Clearly not a pilot - watch is tiny, and he's in a back garden. Off duty pilots are in bars or by pools.

Obviously not a pilot,

He is almost smiling! plus the waistline is too thin (could be from lack of funds to buy food)

Shoulder bars aren't big enough and the undisputable proof is the size of the watch!

Well, lets do the math here...

He's not a Freight Dog on account of him being up n about during the day & he's smiling.

He's not a Pilot, as per the above & also there's only 2 bars on his epaulettes & he's smiling.

He's not an engineer because he's smiling, the shirt isn't stained & there's no tool in his hand.

He's not a Loadmaster because he's smiling, his arms are crossed & he seems to be taking orders.

He's not Cabin Crew because his hair isn't neat enough, the picture is cropped too high & he's smiling.

That leaves Management. He's got no F***ing idea why he's there, he seems excited to look like a Pilot, he's in someone elses backyard and appears comfortable entering through the back door, & he's smiling...which means he's just figured out how to make the photographer redundant!

Yep, a Manager.

Of course all this raises the question - why was Jinkster searching e-bay for pilots clobber in the first place?

That's what I told him when I met him at the local Lodge.

Finger my palm? Sorry did I say "at the local Lodge" - :mad: spellchecker meant to say local fancy dress shop.

The first ebay guy looks like David Gower and as for droopy epaulettes, is he hiding the Morpeth giant rabbit under his hat ??

He'd quit smiling if he knew about the plane approaching at 170 kts...

My bet is he`s a microlighter. Look at some of the other auctions.

He is certainly not an engineer cos most of us only have clip on ties on account of it being too difficult to do one up, and those that have mastered the real ones never have the top button done up, oh and he dosent have any galley stash under his arm.:)
