Recommended Posts

I hope you find it enjoyable to read, and get a good laugh from it. HERE IT IS:After every flight, pilots complete a gripe sheet, which conveys to> > the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight> > that need repair or correction. The form is a piece of paper that the> pilot> > completes and then the mechanics read and correct the problem. They then> > respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial actionwas> > taken and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.> Never let it> > be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humour. Here are> > some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by> QUANTAS > > pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers. By the way,> QUANTAS> > is the only major airline that has never had an accident.> >> > (P = the problem logged by the pilot.
