And a joke from my archives…especially for those who are scared of flying……

After every flight, 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 humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance 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: #2 Propeller seeping prop fluid
  • S: #2 Propeller seepage normal – #1 #3 and #4 propellers lack normal seepage
  • 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 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 lyric
  • 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.


Thank you for dropping in today and if you have enjoyed please pass on the laughter. Thanks Sally
