Not exactly funny but just write-ups I have gotten when the Pilot does not know his Aircraft

-Unable to transmit on OBS Seat ACP
(No supposed to be able to)
-Both Thrust Reversers W/N Deploy on Landing
(They Did not select 14th Stage Bleed Air, Which on a CRJ-200 operates the T/R's)
-Standby Com/NAVUnit Display INOP
(My sign-off was; Found to be normal operation when knob selected to OFF. The guy was so used to it always being on when it was turned off he was stumped)

MX responded with something like "Exhaust temperatures in excess of 1400 degrees... Exhaust will be hot"

Best one I had was-
Squawk: Loud noise under cockpit floor, sounds like a large bear growling.

Signoff: Found no evidence of bear under cockpit floor, could not duplicate problem.

I figured QC would kick this one back to me, but they didnt (I did verify there was no noise).

Another one I see every couple months is
Squawk: Thrust levers diffcult to move

Our usual signoff: loosened friction knob

It's funny how people forget the obvious. I dont know how many times I've seen write-ups for dim lights, and then a sign-off of "adjusted dimmer knob"

A few I remember from recent stuff at my school:

Squawk: Aircraft ran off runway (first time C172 solo student, she was crying on the radio afterwards  cry  )

Signoff: ops chk good (just a few weeds caught in between the brake discs Big grin )


Squawk: Flashlight fell into left fuel tank (a PA-44)

Signoff: Tank drained, flashlight removed, ops chk good


Squawk: a/c yaws left (a PA-44)

Signoff: rudder trim set to neutral, ops chk good

The ones for our sims are even funnier (blue screens of death, 999kts on groundspeed, no control loading etc) and 99% time they can be fixed by a hard reset of the system.

I'm serious these pilots needs more common sense. And not write up the problem unless it's surely needs to be looked at. I mean did you try it again to see if it works?

I can go on but I don't have it over my head as of now...

Here's a good one:

Problem: Main Cabin door paint does not match aircraft.

Spoke with the captain... he said "the paint on the door doesn't match the plane. I stare at him for a min thinkin how !#$% stupid he is... then I said "ok from the logbook, the door was robbed from a C-check aircraft due to the original door being damaged."
He says the same thing he said a min ago "but the paint doesn't match the plane!"

I said "listen, do you want to fly or not?"

Captain: "yes..."

I said "Ok, go back to the logbook and write "Entered In Error with your employee number"

Write up: "Turd smell on cockpit".

One of my instructors did this at America West after a pilot was a total prick to him, he ended up getting into trouble for being a 'smart-ass' in the logbook. True story, I kid you not except the actual problem was something like "Strange noises, sounds like chewing in the cockpit". Then the solution was the same, pretty much "Will Install Cat When Available".

A funny thing often occurs in the small jet part 135 arena...I can speak with a pilot via phone about to fly his last leg of a long trip back to base (his home) and he will say the plane's in great shape. When he get's home and finds out he's going back out in the morning (in the same plane) suddenly write ups appear in the logbook! It's funny, but also EXTREMELY unproductive for a company...I can't complain though...it keeps me employed.

It helps when the Crew writes the PDRs in more detail like Giving Max Information pertaining to the Phase,Speed,Sequencewise of the snag.More details make Mx work easier to Troubleshoot,rather than one line entries of Two or Three words.

Hi MXSUP, Buzz here. Another weird noise gripe was on a 737-300, with some history of nose gear door vibration: "Nose gear doors moan like a constapated rhinocerous".
I really wanted to become poetic on this one, comparing it to a standard Boeing rhino noise. But after a couple hours (and jacking the nose to re-adjust the NLG door pre-load) I simply signed it off something like "adjusted nose gear door pre-load" If the NLG doors don't have a certain stress on them, they vibrate.

Another gripe was "Cockpit door sticks inflight, OK on ground"... how might we figure out where the problem lies on that one?

Same pilots, same flight: "Capt. side window crazed". This guy had made 4 or 5 gripes on that flight, the #3 window was still within limits and we really wanted to write in the logbook "Window within limits, Captain crazed".

I haven't had many "colorful" gripes in the last 5 years or so.

When I worked at Douglas there was a female inspector who wrote a DI-SR on something or other on the horizontal stabilizer of an MD80. She identified it as "the little wing above the big wing".

Which lead to an early retirement-later that afternoon, so I'm told.

Years ago, our cabin defect logbooks had white master, yellow and pink carbon copies. It took years to figure out that the yellow and pink went everywhere together once pulled. With a new book, sans pink, a F/A wrote up: "defect book missing pink paper sheets" rectification: "pink sheets not installed due shortage of pink trees"

I almost forgot about this one, we had a flight attendant who could not get one of the galley drawers to open. The captain sent the FO back during a turn to see if he could figure out why it was stuck. Since the FO couldn't budge the drawer either, the captain entered into the aircraft log, "FO unable to get into Flight Attenants drawers."

Not bad here and now,but I worked for operation in the late 80's where the crews took pride in carrying an airplane,here it's not a problem,with ACARS they can get deferral authorizations pretty quick and be on their way home.

So the problem can be tracked and have it fixed before the MEL limit expires.

We're talking about Mx. Say if you have engine bleed valve fail, you can lock it closed and defer it.
But the deferral authorization is there to keep track of the problem and make sure it can be deferred.

Also is the APU is inop and theres a bleed valve fail, we can't defer it unless we fix one of them due to the MEL requring the engine bleed valve to be working while the APU is inop. Or the other way around.

To add to that,any MEL items will show up on the release,so the crew will know of restrictions,and also to brief the cabin crew of any items which might affect service i.e. ovens,coffee makers,that type of stuff,some items also require a call to dispatch and routing in case of the impact it might have downline...airstart units at an airport..enroute weather forecasts which might restrict flights...as 777WT posted it helps planning and mx control if we provide any troubleshooting info that may help with ordering parts and schedulin downtime.

The problem is here the terms can be different between operators,so going to another co. you have to leave some of your "past life" behind. It's all basically the same idea just slightly terminology.

Ok guys this is a little long but bear with me.

The 727-100 engine fire loops when tested are actually heated, current is applied to them, they heat up and set off the light and the bell. Procedure is to pull the circuit breakers and test them one at a time, cutting the bell out with each one tested. You only test them once with each flight leg, they can burn out.
I get a call out to a gate, as I come in the aft stair door I hear the fire bell sounding, as I get to the mid cabin galley I hear the bell again.
I enter the cockpit and find the FE doing his preflight.
Me: Whats wrong?
FE: The fire warning test isn't working right.
At this point he hits the test button, for the third time that I know of,.The #1 fire handle lights up, bell sounds, #2 and #3 fire handles light up at the same time, and he says "see it's not right".
Me: did you pull the breakers on the other two and test them one at a time like you are supposed to do?
FE: Why would I want to do it that way? That's not how you test it!
Me: Yes it is, this is a 727-100......and I preceded to tell him how the system works and how to test it again.
By this time the captain has arrived and he is listening to me explain this to the FE. The FE reaches for the button to test it AGAIN so the captain can see what the problem is, and I say "Don't touch that button again, you burn those fire loops out and the airplane is out of service"
FE: That's not how it works on all the other 727s I fly.
Captain: Looks at me and says "can I see you on the jet bridge".
I take the logbook out on the jet bridge and sign off the write up.
Captain: Sorry about that, I'll take care of it...ok.
Me: Have fun chief.
AT that point the captain went back to the cockpit and I let the jet bridge door slam but stayed on the jet bridge.
Captain: You [email protected]&!ing moron, do you realize how stupid he thinks you are, I'm not sure if I want to fly with you!
FE: But....But....but.
Captain: He's right about how you test that system.......idiot!
I slid out of the jet bridge door giggiling like a little kid.

Just this one from yesterday call on one of the aircraft for a missing observer headset... came to the plane with a new one only to be told that they found it in the cockpit....... Told them to write 'Entered in Error' in the logbook.


Other one from sometime back, they couldn't find the other logbook which a new one was installed. The new one didn't have an Airworthiness release, it was in the old one and they called us for it.
And the plane was already boarded with pax...

Came to the plane and found the old logbook right behind the captain's seat....

Other one from sometime back, they couldn't find the other logbook which a new one was installed.

We usually keep an extra headset, logbook, QRH, and other essentials in the front wardrobe to keep stuff like this from happening.

Although we have had a few pilots that were so stupid that they forgot to look here and called mx anyways...  banghead 
They build them to a higher standard at Long Beach!

The logbook they were looking for had an airworthiness release signed in it and it was full already, the new one only had a few pages used and it wasn't in it, it was supposed to be stored inside the metal logbook case but for some reason they left it out because the end of the logbook was curling and causing problems keeping it shut closed.

I wish I could have the often needed parts left in the truck to save the time it takes to get back to the office and finding the parts in the parts dept. It used to be like this from what I was told but then the manager moved everything back into the office because people wern't signing them out in the truck and parts dept lost track of them.

So since it's being done this way, I'm not going to rush to get the parts. If it has to cause a delay for a minor thing, then there's the reason why.

i dont know if you were working with us then 777WT but once we got a call from Shuttle to go on a roadtrip to JFK, the book said something like this:

"upon taxing a passanger reported a loud grinding noise coming for the left hand inboard landing gear brake"

i always wondered if the passenger knew the tire pressure and the O2 chrage as well.

How could the pax know it was the left hand inboard brake and not the l/h outboard brake...

Since 2 months ago, We don't do roadtrips for shuttle anymore.
Now a contractor does it.

About 2 months ago, the manager set up a conference call with the DM, Shuttle Mtx Ctrl and their managers and he told them we only do contract work for them if we have time. If not, then they will have to call a contractor if we're busy with the planes we're working on.

And to respect us more when calling us. No demanding or do this and that. Just ask if we can do it and if we tell them we're kinda busy, they have to call a contractor from there on.

This was because they were basically telling us "YOU MUST DO IT" for a reinspection and it wasn't done and the plane took off.
Even told them that they can't give us more than a few service checks because we are not their mechanics, we are for the company planes and contract if time is avail, and they must contact our company mtx control first to see how busy we are and how's the day looking.

Ever since, it's been a bit better.

-At one time I was about to tow away a 767 from it´s gate to a remote parking during it´s nightstop and found a friend of mine crawling in the fwd lav.
-He had already torn almost the entire assy.apart:panels,pipes and the chair..obviously searching for something and got a little disturbed as I asked him to stop whatever he was doin´and get into the captain´s seat to watch the tow and apply brakes if needed ( this was a snowy cold winter night).
-A qiuck glance in the log told me why the entire fwd lav was scattered all over the fwd parts of the cabin,the note read:"Fwd toilet stinks"...

-We completed the tow and went back to the toilet problem...of course nothin´was found malfunctioning so the toilet was restored into working order and the note was written off as :"Fwd toilet always stinks after use,ops check ok"..
