Thanks for humoring an old fart. Richard some of your humor is over my head
Starting a plane, from what little I know about it, is not a key/clicker-nor as Wom says, a simple dip stick operation!
My comments were meant as a little barb toward your Unit Leader for not taking the time to start a plane! I am sure that if it was as simple as turning a key, checking the oil or clicking a clicker, he would have done it himself and not relied on the most important part off getting the plane of the deck-YOU!
so just bear with me. I have to say you nail it perfectly sometimes but other
times I just miss your intent. The nude library takeoff on the Dr. Seuss "Green eggs and ham" poem was priceless.
