-------------------------------------------------------

"Blue water Navy truism: There are more planes in the ocean than submarines in the sky."

- From an old carrier sailor

------------------------------------------------------

"If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter -- and therefore, unsafe."

-------------------------------------------------------

"When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane, you always have enough power left to get you to the scene of the crash."

-------------------------------------------------------

"Without munitions, the USAF would be just another expensive flying club."

-------------------------------------------------------

"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."

"Weather forecasts are horoscopes with numbers."

"Airspeed, altitude and brains.

Two are always needed to complete the flight successfully."

-------------------------------------------------------

"Mankind has a perfect record in aviation; we've never left one up there!"

-------------------------------------------------------

"Flashlights are tubular metal containers kept in a flight bag to store dead batteries."

--------------------------------------------------------

"The Piper Cub is the safest airplane in the world; it can just barely kill you."

- Sign over squadron ops desk at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ, 1970

---------------------------------------------------------

"If something hasn't broken on your helicopter, it's about to."

--------------------------------------------------------

Basic Flying Rules: "Try to stay in the middle of the air. Do not go near the edges of it. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space.

It is much more difficult to fly there."

-------------------------------------------------------

"You know that your landing gear is up and locked when it takes full power to taxi to the terminal."

--------------------------------------------------------------

As the test pilot climbs out of the experimental aircraft, having torn off the wings and tail in the crash landing, the crash truck arrives, the rescuer sees a bloodied pilot and asks, "What happened?".

The pilot's reply, "I don't know, I just got here myself!"

Best,
