Maintenance engineer shenanigans. (Marked by an "S"). After every flight. FEDEX pilots out a form, known as a "gripe sheet" to tell mechanics about pr

(Marked by an "S")

After every flight. FEDEX pilots out a form, known
as a "gripe sheet" to tell mechanics about problems
with the aircraft. The mechanics fix the problem, and
then document their repairs on the form.
Here are some actual maintenance problems submitted
by the pilots (marked with a "PH and the solutions
recorded [marked by an "5") by maintenance
engineers, who by the way have a sense of humor:
P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
St Left Inside main the almost replaced.
P: Test flight UK, except dutchland very rough.
St Dutchland not installed on this aircraft.
P: Something loose in cockpit
5: Something tightened in cockpit
P: Dead bugs on windshield
St Live bugs on back order.
Pt Auto pilot in mode produces a 200
feet per minute descent.
St Can' t reproduce problem on the ground.
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
til: Evidence removed.
P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
St DME volume set more believeable level.
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That' s what friction locks are for.
P: IFF inoperative in {FF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode,
P: Suspect crack in windshield.
St Suspect you' re right.
P: Number 3 engine missing.
St Engine found on right wing after brief search.
P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, tht right and
be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
P: Mouse in cockpit
St Cat installed in cockpit:
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel.

with a hammer.

God damn, I have seen this on there so many times. But it is so ******* funny that I don't give a **** .

you know, when it comes to reposts. it takes more energy to whine and bitch in the comments than it does simply to skip over the content. maybe someone hasnt seen this and they appreciate it being reposted. either way is it the end of the world when someone posts something hey may not know was already posted here?
User avatar #70 to #65 - evilpotato (01/20/2013) [-]
Think of how much old **** is on front page every day. Easily 80%. That's with half the comments being pissed off people who thumbed it down. Think of how much there would be if no one did that.

The time it takes to notice you've seen it before and then skip over piles of reposts makes it worth commenting telling op (frequently zombified) in the hopes they'll at least lower how much they repost daily

so getting pissed off and raging is worth the .5 secs it takes to push the right arrow? as long as the site grows there will be reposts. newer people dont know whats been posted on here before. so instead of raging and making you and the community here look like assholes for raging on people just move onto the next post

not really, My dad worked on F-16's and a pilot said.
P: Sound unfamiliar.
S: Ran jet for 1 hour, Sound now familiar.

I gave it a thumbs up because it's funny, but I suspect this was originally a military joke that's been circulating for some time and later attached to Fed Ex. An IFF (Identify Friend or Foe) and a targeting radar would not be installed on a fed ex aircraft.

I first saw it about 5 or 6 years ago as a qantas airlines
