Been a long time since I last posted, but I though this might amuse you all.

I was reading a few posts on a non-aviation discussion board, when someone wanted to know what MEL stood for. Of course, me being a bit straight laced said it was the 'Minimum Equipment List'. Quick as a flash, a couple of guys came back with their own interpretations which I though I would share with you.

Maintenance Expenditure Limit
Mineral Exploration Licence

Just two of my favourites, can anyone else add to this?

A thread on JB is a hell of a way to find out that MEL doesn't actually mean "You don't mind if we wait writing that up until we're airborne, do you love?"
Sheesh.

At one time, there was a company at Crawley making military gear (Clansman was some of it) called Mullard Equipment Limited - they officially became MEL.
