    Aeroplane joke for a change

    Qantas Airlines: Repair Division








    In case you need a laugh:


    Remember, it takes a college degree to fly a plane but only a high school diploma to fix one.




    After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a 'Gripe Sheet' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.


    The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the Gripe Sheets before the next flight.


    Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humour.


    Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.




    By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.




    P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.


    S: Almost replaced left inside main tyre.




    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 friction locks are for.




    P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.


    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............ (I love this one!)


    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.




    And the best one for last..................


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



    S: Took hammer away from midget.
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    I did too. My Dad (who just passed on this year) was a nagivator in WW-II, so I sent it to all of his pilot friends, and the mechanic who worked with him in one of the other wars he was in (they saw each other by chance 40 years later & recognized each other, isn't that amazing?)

    Oh dear that started the plane songs now.

    That sounds like Aussie humor as well as the hands-on guys knowing the real deal.
