NOT A CAPTION

David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young is seated in the row directly in front of our computer geek subject. Though thoroughly enjoying the excellent caption contributions, he is in a hurry to get to his destination and has instructed me to select a winner on 24/7/2022 at or about 1500Z.

Right, I'm in!
If this doesn't get me a mention on PPRuNe then nothing will.

Well played, all! The usual plethora of superior entries by the usual suspects, but as the main gear deploys the winner is Chu Chu with:

"After the incident, all agreed that the passenger in 27A looked rather sketchy."

Well done! The Coffman Starter Trophy will be sent your way as soon as I can get my laptop to print a mailing label.

Having seen the troubles that the 737 Max got into by only having one airspeed probe, the Skunk Works built in some backups.

As it was being anally probed, the Blackbird fantasized about how its future pilots who would take to heaven and back would look like.

The Blackbird was designed to have some damn good TV reception!
