You put your right wing in, you put your left wing out, you put the stick to neutral then you shake it all about...

Anything could happen in the next 30 minutes

As if they could not make right hand circuits more difficult than they need to be ,

High risk complaints about all the straight in approaches at smaller airfield where they expect circuits and patterns to be flown in absolute compliance with published procedures . It would be a brave soul that would attempt a high G break midfield in that pre bent kite .

The NASA AD, for a slanted wing pilot was frowned upon by the early Wokes.

In second place, Buster, with
One tree! There was just one tree in this desert & you hit it! Good luck finding another one to straighten your wing!
Buster also gets an elephant stamp for bringing Hoskins into the game early, with his #8040,

If we make the aircraft into an X, maybe the navigator will be able to put it on the map.
If we can find where to send it to, the CST will be sent on an indirect course to you. Please paint an X on the footpath outside your house.

Thank you very much, Hydromet.

There were a lot of great entries on that one. My personal favorite was ORAC's, because it reminded of the time my wife tried opening the console on a rental car with the parking brake button. (It released as soon as I tapped the brake; I never would have figured it out if she hadn't 'fessed up.)

Along the same lines (or not . . .), I'll give this photo a shot:
