Look, I've been given the leather jacket so I'm the pilot.

or

Right the blokes didn't didn't come back from the last mission so we've been tasked with taking out enemy HIMARs units. If they couldn't do it with the modern kit, we've no chance, so head North West, hug the ground and try not to get shot by the poles before you can surrender. When you get to the UK, tell them you're under 18 and have been trafficked.

The instructions say - take part No 4482, with the red circle, locate and cement the lug into part 4402.

I don't know, do you know why they called it a Hurricane Patricia?

So we'll start at the Dog and Duck, if we can't pull in there we will head up to the Nags Head, they're not so choosy.

It says here the sweet spot on the Merlin is about 2200RPM when the vibration is at its highest intensity.

Right that's the aircraft delivered here to the front line squadron, now all we have to do is find where ' here ' is so we can call a taxi back to the factory.

The Russian fighter pilots are glad to get the supply of Aircraft off PQ17. So they can plan their route to defect to the West.

That bloody sexist Flight lieutenant Smithers told me I'd be better off as a nose art model.

Don't worry he won't get away with stuff like that in the future.
