"Do we really need all this ****"?
"Oh yes, and more. I'm thinking knives. We can keep them in our boots, and we'll also look hard".

That's the trouble when you have a 4 hour flight, but a 2 hr bladder

Having successfully delivered the aircraft to the front line Squadron, the ferry pilots asked the CO to sign for it. As it was allocated to PO Hoskins will see you again next week.

There must be something wrong when the preflight dressing takes longer than the flight.

"Leave those strings coming out of my nose alone. They're my emergency AOA indicator, and if anything goes wrong, I tell you and you tell the chap at the back to adjust the angle of his head until we're flying level again. It's one better than the last system - I call it Nasal Crash Avoidance Solution."

"Buddy, you got it ass-about: "No drinking within 100' of the aircraft, and no smoking 8 hrs before flight."
"Yeah, at this rate it will be 8 hours before you are ready!"

Know throughout the squadron for his strange sense of humour, Sgt Bloggs is caught by our camera undoing the release cable from the parachute pack retaining pin of his aircraft commander. "Won't 'arf be a laugh if we 'ave to bail out. Imagine the look on ol' Smiffy's face when he pulls that 'andle!"

In an attempt to get out of Tier 4, Hoskins arranges a Pleasure flight over the Channel.
But we cannot land, France has closed tbe border. .
Why do you think I have a parachute??

....and if we run out of bullets, point your fingers at the Hun and shout dagga, dagga, dagga.
Hoskins claimed a kill with that last week.

"Fag?"

* Not a Caption *

FYI, the photo is labelled ... Woman pilots attaching their parachutes beside an aeroplane, 10 January 1940. 'Women's Section of the Air Transport Auxiliary. Somewhere in England. Ferry pilots for the RAF (Royal Air Force), somewhere in England'.
