Well if you have not shown off with the fly past the tower you would have landed when the tide was still in..

Even when he grew up * and became a Pilot* Hoskins could not forget being carried by his long suffering parents when he would just sit down in the mud and refuse to budge till the cry " I wanna carry " was answered in the positive to him...
* Both these statements can't be true.

In the Army, Staff Officers jump over other Staff Officers' backs. The Navy inevitably does it differently.

Normally when one parks away from the spot allocated one has to suffer the indignation of walking to the crew room...Hoskins however has a app * for that...
* Other pick you up from any where taxi apps are available.

Later it was discovered that PO Symington -Smyths claim to have downed 5 Fockers in the morning was nearly a ruse to get a celebratory carry across the field.

Hoskins didn't mind giving a piggyback ride - it was towing the floatplane to rotation speed that aggravated him.
