....and as a good design feature the forward cargo door was designed without steps as it was only a matter of 3 feet from the ground. It all saves weight.
Hoskins will now demonstrate just how easy it is the hop off..

WTF where's the ground gone. ??

Quick solution.....we shall have a half dozen or so WRAF's walk forward if we cannot get that. Infantry Platoon from the Army for that purpose.

Oh don't worry about it, bound to show up sometime
Isn't fuel the stuff that was delivered in gallons, stored in cubic feet and flown around in ponds?

I don't know why they're bothering with this CAT launch lark. When the Ark goes we'll be using the Ski Jump just like the SHAR's

We could build a plinth under it and call it the gate guard.

Skipper. Next time you decide to pack your watch in your bag, let us know BEFORE we load it in the aft hold.

Hoskins, I told you not to stow the beer in the aft hold.

That can't be the problem, Sir -- it's light beer.

The Tug Driver thought it was going to be easier to push the aircraft to the hangar rather than towing it.

Last orders please, ladies and gents. Last Orders!

My entry would have been:
"That's something you don't often see when you are lining up!"
"What's that skipper?"
"Orion's belt!"

Judging soon

The CST jury gave Honourable Mentions to:
NutLoose: I say Jones, shimmy up that houchin cable and unplug it, there’s a good chap.
Kiltrash: Told you the RB211 was just too heavy, but no you had to try just one more
cattletruck: Fortunately our captain came from DC3s and doesn't foresee any problem with proceeding for departure.
treadigraph: Per ardua ad astra... I doubt the CO will see it that way, Sir..
Tashengurt: The trolley service went downhill from there!

But the wnner sld in under the wire with
NutLoose Bloody hell that APU kicks out some thrust.

Well done sir or however you self identify. The CST will be on its way as soon as we get it down from there.

Caption waiting for picture.

Despite saying he could not be bothered watching football, Nutloose has a long lie in...

( With sympathy but Rashford, Sancho and Saka do not deserve the vile abuse I understand was levelled at them on Social Media...)
