Rules of Flying

When a flight is proceeding incredibly well, something was forgotten.
 (Robert Livingston, "Flying The Aeronca")
 
Just remember, if you crash because of weather, your funeral will be held on a sunny day.
(Layton A. Bennett, "Never fly the 'A' model of anything")
 
When a prang seems inevitable, endeavour to strike the softest, cheapest object in the vicinity as slowly and gently as possible.
(Advice given to RAF pilots during W.W.II)
 
The Cub is the safest airplane in the world; it can just barely kill you.
 (Attributed to Max Stanley, Northrop test pilot)
 
A pilot who doesn't have any fear probably isn't flying his plane to its maximum.
(Jon McBride, astronaut)
 
If you're faced with a forced landing, fly the thing as far into the crash as possible.
(Bob Hoover)
 
If an airplane is still in one piece, don't cheat on it; ride the b****d down.
(Ernest K. Gann, advice from the 'old pelican')
 
Though I Fly Through the Valley of Death I Shall Fear No Evil For I Am 80,000 Feet and Climbing.
(Sign over the entrance to the SR-71 operating location on Kadena)
 
You've never been lost until you've been lost at Mach 3.
(Paul F. Crickmore)
 
Never fly in the same cockpit with someone braver than you.
(Richard Herman, Jr., "Firebreak")
 
There is no reason to fly through a thunderstorm in peacetime.
(Sign over squadron ops desk at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ, 1970)
 
The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement. The night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities in life where you get to experience all three at the same time.
