At Newquay Airport Hoskins was offered the chance to sit in tbe Museum 's Harrier and dream of being a Pilot. But dressing up in a G Suit and Mae West was a nerdy thing too far.

Long before the internet, Kiltrash thought of a fabulous last-minute CapComp entry before going flying, and needs to find a post-box, which the groundcrew says is "over there."

Sir, I do not care for how long your assignment at Falklands lasted, you were supposed to hand over your aircraft a decade ago at Fleet Air Arm Museum THAT WAY.

Or

Sir, we have F35's nowadays. Please take your antiquated collection of parts flying in loose formation somewhere else.

No, sorry old boy, we don't offer Greenshield Stamps, I think Leeming might if you take a full tank and get the oil topped up.

Elementary Falconry gone awry: as Hoskins flips through page after page trying to find the instruction on luring wayward birds back to the arm, his optimistic assistant, Murgatroyd, waits patiently. Neither notice that the bird has been sucked in to the left intake of the Harrier, barbecued, and spat out as an overcooked squab!

I'll be glad when we get the LRMTS installed in the nose, as this pointing a pen at the target isn't really doing it for me.

Pilot was the last to realise a seagull had shat on his helmet.

"It's called a Jump Jet because not all of them have ladders to help you get into the cockpit. Yours is that one over there."

"Well, of course, Sir, being in the Army I would just run over there in a couple of minutes, but if you want to fly there in your plane, I have no authority to stop you."
