You’re gonna need a bigger bog truck than that mate, the crew seriously sh*t themselves when the spar went.

Not sure the Honey Wagon will be able to handle those No.4 curries if the main spar canít

Pre-bending stress loading the wing before the fire service gets them for fire suppression might not be such a money saving idea after all ?

Good work. But I told you to use an A-400. "Starlifter Shrugged" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

The crew are refusing to fly it Sir. They say it is leaning so far over to the right, it's making the boarding ladder to steep to climb.

The new BAe aircrew watch had not been fully evaluated in the operational environment.

It's the new aircraft for Boris Johnson/Scott Morrison/Donald Trump (choose as appropriate). Thats why it's leaning so far to the right.

Hoskins, there's a reason it says "No Step" on the wingtip.

You can always tell the Japanese export version. The other models only kneel.

I told you that new searchlight was too heavy, too large and impractical to mount on the starboard wing!

The " Let's get all the Squadron Crew stand on the wing, jump up and wave our caps in the air " Christmas photo call did not go according to plan.
