Arline Service Technicians

After every flight pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which
conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during
the flight that need repair or correction.

The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing
on the lower half of the form what remedial action was 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 humor!

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.)
(S= The solution and action taken by the engineers.)

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: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny.
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.

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget
pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget.

Make life challenging. Be the underdog!
