    AIRLINE LOGS
    Some extracts from actual maintenance logs recorded by pilots with the responses of the ground maintenance engineers to the complaint.
    Who said that engineers lack a sense of humour?

    P: Test flight OK, except autoland very rough.
    E: Autoland not installed on this aircraft.

    E: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

    P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.

    E: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

    P: Suspected crack in windshield.

    We were told these as part of my training in the aerospace industry, they defy belief

    I work in Aerospace and we get some components returned to us with stupidly phrased reasoning, this one is a classic

    I heard an ATC recording of a pilot decending and reporting a "layer of icing". ATC responded quick as a flash, "Roger, report clear of the marzipan!".....
    For about the next 2 hours lots of other planes coming on the channel other plane on the channel joined in and ribbed the original pilot, things like "dodgy currents" and "Roger, peel off left to heading 270!" loads of really tenuous cake and cookery related quips.....the controller felt quite bad about what he had started, but it was pretty funny and very quick witted.
