If you think the tyre is flat just wait until it rolls forward.

(Muffled) Yes Sir, I can confirm the inboard side is only flat on the bottom as well.

Baffled by the persistent tire air pressure warning, Hoskins replaces the sensor for the third time.

Hoskins looked desperately for the missing air.....but in the end conceded he would need to put another stores request in!

The RAF crews were disappointed to learn that they were also a part of the 'Boots on ground' initiative.

The Lawers following the Ambulance expecting a big pay day call it all off when they found it was only Calamity Crash Dummy on a training exercise

Not to worry. I've been down on everything but the Titanic, I'll soon have this blown up.

If you're going to be a human substitute for the missing air, you'll have to wrap yourself round a bit better than that.

OK, a quick game is a fast game.

This week's award goes to Dan Gerous for

"Not to worry. I've been down on everything but the Titanic, I'll soon have this blown up."

Take it away, Dan.
(The story behind the flat tyre: a pair of Hueys were working from Weipa, the far north pointy bit of Oz, when the local yokels pulled a strike at the fuel farm. A Herc was despatched full of fuel drums for us, but blew the tyre on landing and was stuck on the runway. We had to unload the drums and roll them along the runway to our fuel dump, the Herc taxied clear and waited a day for a new tyre to come on another Herc. Then a Huey got an engine chip, needing a new engine. This one came by Caribou, which blew its own engine on departure and came back to Weipa. Another Caribou brought their spare engine, but for a while we had a stack of air force planes on a piddly airport. The local motel loved us.)

After rubbing the lamp he found in the sand and meeting the genie...Hoskins wished he had been more specific when asking for a 'large chopper'
