    No.1 Progress in airline flying: now a flight attendant can get a pilot pregnant

    No.2 The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

    No.3 You've never been lost until you've been lost at Mach 3.

    No.4 When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane you always have enough power left to get you to the scene of the crash.

    No.5 What is the similarity between air traffic controllers and pilots?
    If a pilot screws up, the pilot dies; If ATC screws up, ...the pilot dies.

    No.6 Airspeed, altitude and brains. Two are always needed to successfully complete the flight.

    No.7 Takeoffs are optional, landings are mandatory.

    No.8 Learning should be fun. If you don't have fun in aviation, then you don't learn, and when learning stops, you die

    No.9 The 3 worst things in aviation: Altitude above you, Runway behind you, and Fuel in the truck

    No.10 Remember, landing is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and repeatedly miss.

    No.11 If you haven't been scared on board an aircraft, then you need to try fly out of the traffic pattern

    Oh well, when I read such things about aviation, pilots and all, I always (for any reason) think about this great video on YouTube, with the grat Foster Brooks visiting Dean Martin. Foster playing a drunk airline pilot...

        Everything here very good (and funny), but to my knowledge Mach 3 is not obtainable for anyone...

        Bless you for this quote, and bless 'Sterkoder' for the video of Dean Martin as the drunk pilot!

          A good point... Mach 3 would probably be stretching the truth quite a bit.

            Airport under roof

            I came across this today:

            From the official correspondence list of "Luftfartstilsynet".

              That was my THIRD big laugh tonight - thinking of what a go-around would look like at this runway:
              (Like when some nitwit stalls his utility vehicle on it shortly before a plane were to touch down...)
              Picture a 737 splattered like a fly all over the insides of that roof? Haaahaha hehehe iiiii my tummy hurts.

              Keep 'em coming, guys.

                Nah, these things have been flying around @ Mach 3+ since the 60s

                  A long time ago I met a SR-71 pilot. We talked a bit about it's top speed. He said that he had heard "rumors" that the SR-71 could go faster. He winked and quietly said "and it can do it for a long time".
