A sampling from our collections
Offering a reward of better maintenance and safer flying, Chance Vought Corporation issued these "wanted" posters for several members of the Murphy family (of Murphy's law fame).
Born while the taxi was backing out of a one-way street; Habitually puts things together backwards
Disregards torque limits; Thinks a good turn is one which won't go any farther
Has trouble seeing what he is looking at; Frequently passes bad (maintenance) checks
Feels no need to read the Maintenance Manual; Thinks he knows all of the answers
Never refers to the Maintenance Manual when in doubt; Usually mutters "that's how we did it on the ________"
Believed to be a son-of-a-bolt; Known to frequently strip joints (threads, that is)
