"Is it supposed to do this, Sir?"

(Thanks, Fantome; Ricardian, you are forgiven - suggest substitute "spider" !)

So many excellent suggestions, it's difficult to pick a winner, but I'll go with...
In 3rd place,

Steve Cox, with "Just at the point of take-off Buster's wallet slipped out of his pocket and dropped to the back of the aircraft."

In 2nd place, Danny 42C with "My next trick is impossible !"

Sometimes the obvious ones are the best, so a round of applause, please, for Stanwell, with
"A bit early on the round-out there, Hoskins."

Take it away, Stanwell.

Not able to post a pic - perhaps Danny could do the honours?

Sorry for the delay, as I had not expected this development

Get your teeth into this (kind courtesy of Warmtoast Mar'14, see "Gaining a Brevet..."p.269 #5366 and #5368). (Fantome, your turn next, as discussed).

Bloggs ... The Slow Roll requires 'Push' not 'Pull' to keep the nose on the horizon when inverted

Being the keener cadet Bloggins decided to read ahead and memorize all the procedures for his next aircraft, the Harvard. Unfortunately he did not really understand what the book was talking about in the "Wheels up landing" procedures section.......

This is what happens if you try to stand it on its tail on landing!
