Just for laughs...

(this plopped into my inbox this afternoon and I thought I’d share the wealth :get it?: )

After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which
conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during
the flight that need repair or correction.

The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in
writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken, and
the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor.

Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as
submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance
engineers. By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never
had a crash.

(P = The problem logged by the pilot.)
(S = The solution and action taken by the engineers.)

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.
S: Something tightened in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That’s what they’re there for.

P: IFF inoperative.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you’re right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget
pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget.

Nice one there. Its pretty funny.:hahaha;

LOL, just what I needed.

I thought only intelligent people could be pilots. Anyway, LOL.

Heard that on Snopes.

Ah well. Funny still.

Heh. Yeah, I’ve seen this one …

Some of my friends are thinking of joining the RAF. Maybe I should them this, but only the list. That might be good for a laugh.

The pay level is not paralell with the level of intelligence. Too bad, since I want to become a teacher.

Heh - good one thanks for the post =)

I needed that laugh.

Seen it before, months ago, but still great. laughs so hard it hurts

“Evidence removed”
