One tree! There was just one tree in this desert & you hit it! Good luck finding another one to straighten your wing!

The early chemtrails experiments created huge distortions in the time space continuum, some parts of the aircraft arrived before they departed .

When designers drop too much acid in their youth , you get the Aircraft equivalent of the Philadelphia Experiment , and if it crashes it can always be blamed on pilot error . He erred by attempting to fly something that looked liked the fruit of two close cousins .

Flying over the buried magnetic field kept the wing flying straight, but the fuselage yawed like a bastard. Musta been the pilot's watch.

Hoskins flew on regardless, pondering the shiny big metal pin and attached flag in the cockpit pocket and wondering what it was for.
