Default OT early humour. Losing an Engine



Losing an Engine

Santa Claus, like all pilots, gets regular visits from the Federal =
Aviation Administration, and it was shortly before Christmas when the =
FAA examiner arrived.

The examiner walked slowly around the sled. He checked the reindeer =
harnesses, the landing gear, and Rudolf's nose. He painstakingly =
reviewed Santa's weight and balance calculations for the sled's enormous =
payload.

Finally, they were ready for the check ride. Santa got in, and the =
examiner hopped in carrying, to Santa's surprise, a shotgun.

"What's that for?" asked Santa incredulously.

The examiner winked and said, "I'm not supposed to tell you this, but =
you're gonna lose an engine on takeoff."

When it's all said and done, then he tells us.

Make a nice MPEG of it that doesn't look like every cartoon we have seen
before, post a link, and I'm sure it will be appreciated!

Can we modify the newsgroup charter so that it says nobody is allowed
to post this joke at least until December?

I've been in aviation awhile and I hadn't heard it. I was amused.
