Match the vest with a new pilot uniform, orange jumpsuit with "Convict" printed on the back and make us pick up FOD while doing the exterior preflight.
You don't already pick up FOD during exterior inspection?

Yea that was my point. I usually nab anywhere from 1 to 6 bits of FOD during my walkaround, usually broken zipper pulls but it's included just about everything you can imagine, including drink cans that have been run over several times so it's obvious they've been on the ramp for quite a while.

A flattened soda can could easily get lifted and sucked in and would cause quite a bit of damage.

Anyone who changes their voice, cadence, accent, speed of speech or changes wording for a checklist. Stop it. Now. Also, at least look at it. Thatís the point. Iím glad you have it memorized. Good job. However, read it.
