Well you see sir, Hoskins here has mixed up the paperwork, so we're not sure if we're pulling this one apart, or putting it back together.

SEngO: When I said to move Bravo Yankee to the other side of the hangar. I did not mean one bit at a time!
JEngO: But we can't find the towing arm, sir.

Finding that the reassembly procedures are written in French, Hoskins decides to wing it.

Now we just fill in the gap, and we'll have room for an Upkeep under each wing.

Normally we arrogantly use this for the SEngO to embarrass the apprentices, but in this occasion we will need the suggestion box.

I've been wielding my span-ner
On the Wing Co's Jaguar
When he finds out he'll do his nut
And kick me hard right in the butt

The first time they put together they were left with two bolts , so they took it apart and put together again and they had three bolts left over .
Only the cunning artificer laughing in the corner knows where the mystery prank bolts came from
