Not the first time Fred flew without his spectacles, but this latest prang has him considering LASIK.

In response to the recent incident at Bird Rock Aerodrome (EBRA), the AAIB recommends modifying the GPWS call from, "Too low Flaps" to, "Too low, Flap Harder".

Overweight, no flaps, a tail wind and a late flare, what could possibly go wrong? Did the nose gear survive?

"Double somersault, half twist, degree of difficulty too much for your ability; and next time fill the pool with water."

The recruiter: "you passed the theory, but failed the practical. Don't call us and we wont call you. Consider another profession. The circus, non-flying, comes to mind."

"I suggest the grass will be more forgiving than the rocks until you've had more practice."

Puffins are members of the auk family - the great auk is extinct.

@treadigraph: thank you sir, I was thinking back to a report I did in 4th grade on extinct species ... great auk was one of the birds I wrote up.


Caption 3: ... and that's how I earned the call sign "Auk Riste"

Forget the species, but mum and dad nest high up on cliffs. Once fledged it's time for Junior to get to the water.

After a good landing Junior can make it to the water for fishing lessons and upgrading his flight capability:ok:

The local foxes clean up the bad landings:uhoh:

While the local foxes can't make it to nests on the cliffs, patience yields more substantial meals:E
