Quantas Mechanics and Pilots

The claim is made that after every flight, QANTAS pilots fill 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.

The following are maintenance problems submitted by the pilots (marked with a ‘P’) and the solutions recorded (marked by an ‘S’) by maintenance engineers, who by the way have a sense of humor:

———-

P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.

S: Left inside main tyre almost replaced.

———-

P: Test flight OK, auto-land very rough.

S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

———-

P: Something loose in cockpit.

S: Something tightened in cockpit.
