The Repair Shop was foxed when this was brought in to be repaired.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the unveiling to our new piece of kit which I hope you will all aspire to operate one day. Please note that in order to do so, however, you will need to pass a series of ground exams, undertake dual instruction in the two seat version (to be delivered shortly), build some solo hours and further experience (at your own expense I might add) and maybe even work as instructor for a while before we might employ you. Oh, and you will need a helicopter licence as well."

Many good entries this time round...seemed to be a theme of helicopter/JCB crossbreeding developing

I thought there might be scope for a "Caterpillar Club" related caption but guess not many pilots escape crashing helicopters by parachute...........

However the Jury awards the CST to Big Pistons Forever for:

"Robinson had a little fun with the Chinese hackers who thought they had stolen the production drawings."

Over to you BPF

Actually it looks more like a Schweizer than a Robinson...





Well done BPF

I never thought it would be possible to create a pig's arse out of a silk purse Bloggs, but your design for our latest MB escape system has managed to disabuse me of every notion I hold dear...

Well done BPF...!

While waiting for the next offering thought I would muse a caption for the upcoming picture

Matt Hancock was glad to get in his holiday in Cornwall compiled with Covid -19 regulations, however dissapointed to find Piers Morgan was his neighbour

Maybe he thought that the description of “a nice house near Piers” meant a sea view?

This country will spare no efforts to ensure that the UK covid variant beats the world, and in particular, the so-called South African variant.

The advert said "Join the Royal Navy and feel a man" - so that's exactly what Claire did...

Larry Flynt's dying regret was that he never got Section Officer Harvey into Hustler magazine to display her cockpit.

... and so, by simple maths, we can see that if we all fire our pea-shooters at once, we have a good chance of downing an enemy aircraft.

Guy’s. I am having technology challenges and will be unlikely to be able to post a picture for a few days so I declare the CAPCOM open to the fastest fingers in PPRUNE-dom.
