In brief, for all those who want it:

Pilots cock up landing in big old bomber.
End up at end of REALLY SHORT runway, stuck in the tarmac.
Take a week to get extracted and fixed.
Nav-man (Bloke who wrote story) denies any part in it.

Sorry i couldn't make it shorter. :p

You really have no idea about such concepts as humour, do you?

It'd be a good case study for a Flight Safety course, but I have a hard time believing that it was expressly intended as an amusing anecdote.

A categoric no.

Cnut.

PS- was wondering how long it would take for this thread to end up in The Hole.

I doubt that ground crew and especially civilians, wanabees, 'desk jocky' administrators would get much out of it. Or Army ground pounders, although as I point out below, there are those types in the ground forces too.

Why did you post it here then :?:

I didn't post it here. The Mods moved it here from the aviation tread.

As current, serving aircrew I thought it was a load of old shoite and deserving of its place in the "hole".

Nice job on the cut and paste though.
