Please show some respect for tradition , his grandfather was responsible for bringing down over two hundred Fokker und Messerschmitt aircraft . His family has been fixing aircraft for four generations . His Grandfather might not have been the best mechanic in the Luftwaffe, but you have to respect tradition.

Weight and balances got complicated when the PC brigade banned the use of the term No Fat Chicks in the rear of the aircraft

Oh, I think I know why it crashed. The Regimental Quartermaster wrote off 100,00 lbs of gear he said was on the helicopter !

They attempted to lift off vertically with the wrong chemtrail unit attached that is not the helio chemical kit , but a kit for the A380 , everyone knows that you need to use the conveyor belt treadmill runway conversion kit to get airborne when loaded at thirty three percent over gross on a hot day !

In the remake of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy's helicopter still managed a direct hit on the Wicked Witch of the East, who was riding her ATV through Munchkin Land.

The last transmission heard from the crew: "I love the smell of those burning heroine poppies in the morning".

As the aircraft crashed in the Mach Loop, the crew thought the snappers were coming to help rescue them, However Social Media posts and souvenirs were more in their minds..

Hoskins, no matter how many bits you take off.....no one is going to believe you when you say you thought it was a Taliban UAV you took out!
