Caption competition

Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Coffman Starter

As soon as I read Nutty's link, I thought of that touching tribute Warner Brothers did for Mel Blanc & how it seems appropriate to me from the perspective of our beloved little Caption Comp.

Won't be the same without you Coff.

A suitable pause as we remember Coffman Starter.

Sorry to butt in here. Please I briefly bring your attention to a thread that I think you will want to see.

Kindest regards,

Gentlemen, I think an appropriate silence has been held, and hopefully with Coff's approval we can resume our normal business.

What do you mean "all the other pilots land using the long axis of the lake"?

Dave failed to understand why he was being treated as an Outcast just because he had filled his Pants with yesterday's Curry.

I think I might judge this evening, as there's bu66er all on TV

Oh, the responsibility lies heavy on these shoulders, especially as I'm in a slightly diminished state having had yet another tooth removed for lack of attachment!

CapCom - two options for your Temporary Judge, as two very different themes emerged. Those celebrating Gay Pride something, and those that were actually Aviation-related. Gosh, this is harder than I expected [which is not a Caption, but could have been a winner!]

From the Gay category, I chose .

Runner Up = andytug:
Bloggs, that is not what I meant by 'set up camp'
Gay Flight Winner = Tashengurt:
Biggles was stuck on the bank just waiting for Ginger to pull him off.
................
And from the Aviation Category I chose

Runner Up = Arm out of the window:
You've heard of the fleet air arm, well we're the slow air arm.
Aviation Flight Winner = JAVELINBOY:
Well here we are again up shit creek without a paddle
...............

But the winner of the nice warm flying overall with matching helmet, goggles and one glove is .



drum-roll




Tashengurt
