That's a great fun-fact. I'll incorporate that into my next PA.

Tool of the day: me.

Finding out that the female FAA "cabin inspector" was in fact, a maintenance inspector who would be not only in the jumpseat for the flight, but walking around with me on the preflight.

Ahhh, good old DB at ZW. The epitome of the term "douche bag", no doubt. Insipid is how I described him after a lunch during recurrent ground school.

Having what appears to be a violent seizure on the flight controls on every landing then calling the herky jerky disaster your "technique". Strangely, I only see PFTers doing it. Huh!

You sir, have my vote for special tool of the day.
