The Best Place for Fun - Airplane Maintenance

     After every flight Quantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet", which tells the mechanics about problems with the aircraft.  The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, then the pilots review the gripe sheets right before the next flight.  Never let it be said that the ground crews lack a sense of humor.

     Here are some of the actual maintenance complaints submitted by the Quantas pilots (as marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (as marked with an S) by the maintenance engineers.

     By the way, it is relevant to note that Quantas is the only major airline in the world that has never, ever, had an accident!
