Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just in case you need a laugh: Remember it takes a college degree to fly a
    plane but only a high school diploma to fix one. Reassurance for those of us
    who fly routinely in our jobs.
    After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet,"
    which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics
    correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots
    review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that
    ground crews lack a sense of humor.
    Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' pilots
    (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by
    maintenance engineers. By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has
    never, ever, had an accident.
