the scariest picture in existence
i've flown many times, not anymore...thanks to this :shock:
I have never had the nerve to fly and now seeing that picture they would have to give me an elephant trqualizer to even get me on borad. :shock:
Funny. Obviously (and poorly) photoshopped, but funny.
Can you imagine the conversation over the radios with one another...?
"We've got the entire sky, and you just have to fly right here!"
(Yeah, I know, kinda dumb, but that's my imagination for you...)
Re: the scariest picture in existence
Now, I'll bet that was a scary experience! Praise God that He took care of everything! That is quite a testimony.
If that still doesnt scare you. Keep reading
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.
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 had an accident.
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: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.
P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute
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 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. (this one is good...)
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
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.
That's funny! I like the "live bugs on back-order!" :lol:
That is a scary picture Brother Jeff.
But the truth is, I love flying. I always have.
Ive been Blessed to have gone to Italy 3 times to see Family. Jamaica for my honeymoon, and Florida for a vacation.
I even took a ride on one of those small little airplanes with the single engine. That one was the best yet.
The sound of the engine reving up before the take off, the feel of the plane in flight moving around....very cool.
My favorite parts are the take off and the landing of an air plane.
