Mad Flasher, Ha Ha Ha !!


Paddy and Murphy are flying along in their old Tiger Moth, Murphy asks.
"Hey Paddy, if we fly upside down do you think we'll fall out?".
Paddy "No Murphy, I think we'll still be friends"


Just after taking off, the captain of a jumbo makes his customary announcement about the length of the journey, expected arrival time and so on. But after he's finished he forgets to turn off the microphone, turns to his co-pilot and says, "Right, I'll finish this sandwich, then I think I'll nip back and make love to that new blonde stewardess." In horror, the stewardess, who is at the rear of the plane, rushes down the aisle to prevent the captain's indiscretion going any further. On her way, an old lady grabs her arm. "Why rush, dear?" she says. "He said he had to finish his sandwich first."




A few Flying Definitions

ANGLE OF ATTACK - Direction from which you are hit after setting up a nice mid-air with your club mate's new plane. 
AUTOROTATION - What your car does on icy roads.       
CRASH - Quick method of removing radio and engine from a model to fit them in your new one.       
CYANO (Super Glue) - Stuff usually dripping on your clothes, turning them into armor and you into a modeler knight. 
DEAD STICK - Two of these can be found on your transmitter after failing to properly charge your batteries. 
DEAD STICK - The Yucca your aunt gave you to clear the air in your workshop after 3 months lack of water.   
ENGINE - Device designed to make noise. Will suddenly stop making this noise when beyond glide-in distance. 
EPOXY - The stuff that has replaced the balsa after the flying season. 
FAIL SAFE - Option on PCM radio's that allows a pilot to choose whether to crash near him, or a long way away. 
FLARE - What someone has when they're good enough to show off.   
FLYING WING - To be seen after too tight a loop. 
FUEL TANK - Plastic bottle, designed to leak when placed in totally inaccessible locations.     
GLITCH - What you shout when you pull up elevator while flying inverted at 10ft altitude. 
GRAVITY - Force of nature designed to reduce aircraft to their component parts. 
LANDING GEAR - Structure to separate fuselage from runway after landing. Does not always succeed in doing so. 
LANDING - Comes in multiple forms
    GOOD - The plane comes in contact with the ground, and all bits are still there. (rare form) 
    AVERAGE - The plane comes in contact with the ground, and most bits are still there. (most common form) 
    BAD - The plane comes in contact with the ground, and all bits have grown in number but diminished in size. (common form)   
MEAN AIR CHORD - That nasty minor eighth note caused when your wings snap on launch and whack together. 
MIXTURE SCREW - Device to meter too little fuel to engine at critical moments.    
O.S. - Initials of the two words that an r/c pilot says when he loses control going straight down. 
PATTERN PLAN - Make a copy of the plans so when it crashes, you have the patterns to build another one. 
PROPELLER - Rotating knife that cuts holes in the air, which the aircraft falls into, thus propelling the aircraft.   
PROP NUT - What Glider pilots call Power pilots.        
SWEPT AREA - The only part of your house not covered in balsa dust.       
TREE - Implement used to separate Wings from Fuselage.     
WING AREA - What you get more of in the car by leaving the wife at home.




Tips and advice for flyers

1. Flying isn't dangerous. It’s Crashing that's dangerous.

2. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

3. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you've made.

4. Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.

5. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.


6. It’s always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much as possible.




Two strangers, a man and a woman, were seated next to each other on a plane, the man turned to this beautiful blonde woman, and made his move by saying, "Let's talk." I've heard that flights will go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The blonde, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly, and said to the man, "What would you like to discuss?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the man. "How about nuclear power?"

"OK," said the blonde. That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass, “The same stuff,” Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. “Why do you suppose that is?”

"Oh brother," said the man. "I have no idea."

"Well, then," said the blonde, "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit?"
