I tell you what, we’ll write it up as tripod leg collapsed, that doesn’t sound as bad.

Can we get the film developed pronto? I can’t wait to see the shots of the Captains face as we slid past the bridge.

Suffering from transient disorientation, the pilot couldn't remember which side was the hook and which side the drag chute so pulled both.

Right, here we go:
In a well deserved second place, Wensleydale with "High Speed Into Net Service."

The winner (on the basis that old brommers as a back seater himself would appreciate at dig at navs), Nutloose with "Yes bridge, the engines are shut down, the high pitch whining you can still hear is coming from the back seat."
