Sir, why do we need Ejector Seats ?

Well we spent $12 on your training and so the aircraft is expendable, you are not

Ok, write up the tech log Hoskins, Scout XX1234, severe vibration and then give them the list of locations where they can find the parts.

How much do you weigh?

-- 82 kg

-- Damn, I'm 81 - I'm just off to get a 1 kg weight or this thing'll be uncontrollable.

Small steps...

The quest to have an in-flight toilet starts by hanging a chain above the pilots.

Where's Hoskins? Wasn't meant to take this test flight?
No he had a message to...
"Stay Home"
"Protect the NHS"
"Save Lives"

Who is he to ignore advice from the Government...

NTSB and AAIB can stand down....

Nobody ever claimed that it would fly - but it does produce lovely creamy coffee.

Lets go and lift out that Chinook stuck in that muddy field. That'll wipe the smirk off their face's.

Amazing what Photoshop can do - here we are, cruising along at 30,000' while the PR photo is going to show us stuck on the tarmac. That'll confuse the Russians.
