    Ike was an interesting man. As President, he proposed and promoted our interstate highway system. Some of our past Republican Presidents would now be considered too left for today's right wing and they knew how to put partisan differences aside to get things done for our country...so unlike the Republican party of today.

Some Airline Humor

Monday, September 10, 2012

Most pilots possess a college degree in order to fly a commercial aircraft, but only a high school diploma to fix one... a reassurance to those of us who fly routinely in our jobs.

After every flight, UPS 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 UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has never, ever, 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: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit
*
P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.
*
P: Auto pilot 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 am an aircraft mechanic, and that list has been around for a few years, but ie usually attributed to Qantas Airlines. I'll look around at work and send you some more of these gems!

A couple of Late NIght Funnies

Monday, September 10, 2012

Late Night Funny #3

Today, the Democrats added the word ‘God’ to the official party platform. It’s in the part that reads, ‘Did you see Michelle Obama’s biceps. Oh, my God!’

Conan O'Brien



Late Night Funny #4

If Mitt Romney looks familiar it’s because for 18 years on All My Children he played Palmer Courtland. Mitt looks like every model in the Sky Mall catalogue.

David Letterman

    I agree. It's not up to one man or woman to do the job. It's about all of us pulling together to get the job done.

    I was expecting a joke of some kind. It's nice to run across a fellow Obama supporter here on Spark.

    I watched the news about the job numbers, and hear that 96K jobs added sucks, but voting for Romney takes us back to LOSING 800K a month. Americans know that + 96 is better than - 800. We just tend to forget how bad it was, till reminded at the DNC. Glad to see Obama getting farther up on Romney.

My brother and I both have heart problems.. I got disablity, when they put my 2nd ICD in, but he still works, and has no insurance, due to pre-existing conditions. He is going to college at 42, on a Pell grant. If Romney is elected, he loses health care possibility in 2014, and college is gone, since Romney wants to cut Pell grants 50%. What Obama needs to focus on, is not policy, but examples of how those policies actually apply to people in everyday life. If he can show people what the Romney/ Ryan plan will do to people, he should win easily. The DNC was probably the best ever. Hope the bounce continues on through November.
