Thank God this one hasn't got props, Rudolph's antlers still haven't grown fully back after tangling with that Herc during training.

Blitzen to Rudolf - C'mon just a bit faster and we can get a free ride across the Atlantic. It'll be hard work after all the port and sherry in Europe otherwise...

All this night time flying cargo, wish I had a day job.
Oh stop complaining, isn't like you have to load the thing as well on a cold, wet and draughty apron.
( bloody pilots, always moaning )

Boomer to Pilot. Santa is asking where the chimney is so he can deliver our presents, what do I tell him ?

Pilot to Boomer, tell him no need to give me presents, just being an Air Force pilot is good enough for me !

Boomer to Pilot: Never mind.....

Well - that was a fantastic selection of captions - such good quality throughout.

Honourable mentions to the following:

NutLoose - Thank God this one hasn't got props, Rudolph's antlers still haven't grown fully back after tangling with that Herc during training.

622 - "Boomer to Pilot....positive ID, looks like Reindeer"

"Roger, thanks for the weather update....but don't call me dear on duty"

Wensleydale - If we can hide under this thing then NORAD will not be able to track us this year!

Surplus - Santa's No2 was Dasher, he was known as the brown nose reindeer, just as fast as Rudolph, but rubbish brakes.

Dan Gerous - 364 days to do the pre-flight, and you forgot to check the fuel!

However - because I love a pun my winner is:

treadigraph with "Fill 'em up, Jet Hay 1 please..."

CST is jingling its way over to you!

I actually laughed aloud at this one:
Santa did not anticipate the re designed Sleigh MAX had a unexpected nose up when he applied power

After a good feed of sauerkraut, the lads needed to raise one leg, open their greatcoats, and let rip...

Lt. Gruber was totally wrong with his interpretation of Blitzkreig.

We're trying to lure out the von Trapps, we know they're here somewhere.

The nostalgia week of "Lets Dance", the German version of Strictly, did not go down too well with the viewers.
