One Step Away
Some of the best humor on earth comes from the firing line. Here, let
me give you a few examples that prove my point.|
"Mankind has a perfect record in aviation; we have never left one up there!"
"The Piper Cub is the safest airplane in the world; it can just barely kill you." - Attributed to Max Stanley (Northrop test pilot)
"Even with ammunition, the USAF is just another expensive flying club."
The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
The landing of the plane he was testing was a rough one. The wings and the tail disintegrated in the crash. The fuselage split down the middle when the cockpit shoved its way backwards. The pilot climbs out with blood streaming from various punctures just as the crash truck arrives. An eager rescuer leaps from the truck and races to the bloodied pilot and gulps "What happened?".
The pilot turns his one remaining eye to study his inquisitor, then replies: "I don't know, I just got here myself!" - Attributed to Ray Crandell (Lockheed test pilot)
"Flying the airplane is more important than
radioing your plight to a person on the ground incapable of understanding or
doing anything about it."
"Though I Fly Through the Valley of Death, I Shall Fear No Evil. For I am at 80,000 Feet and Climbing."
"You know that your landing gear is still up and locked when it takes full
power to taxi to the terminal."|
"It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed." - U.S. Air Force Manual
"You've never been lost until you've been lost
"You, you, and you ... Panic!
"Friendly fire - isn't"
"Never trade luck for skill."
"Whoever said the pen is mightier than the
sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons." - General
