No, we can't use that ruler, its calibration is out of date.

So the pilot is reporting that when in a dive the engine cuts out? I'm testing it now and I think he's right.

I told you not to loosen that bolt as it was holding the engine on, but did you listen?

If it cannot be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

Replacing the silica gel packs with dilithium crystals should get the warp drive test bed aircraft at Tinian island ready for the big push .

No need for the torque wrench , when my tennis elbow pops that is as tight as it gets

Are you sure it's Newton Meters, not foot lbs??
Oh **** it stripped the threads... again...
Tick it as serviceable it's the 26 mission and no one has EVER returned from 26 so just blame the ack ack over the target. ..

I don’t know why they call them Snap On, most stuff I use them on Snaps Off.
