RAF ace Ben PLANK lived up to his name when he hit the wrong button

He transformed into a long, flat piece of timber? Man, that was the wrong button.

I wonder if he made the same mistake when he met Morpheus.

What a planker.

As mistakes go, while at 10,000 feet going 500 MPH, that's not such a bad one.
 
2013-06-11 09:52:41 AM  
And he's one of the most skilled pilots in the RAF.

Looks like we can cross the UK off our list of reliable allies.

/which means we're down to Australia

Maybe he is colorblind.  You don't know.

Hide your head in shame, Ben Plank. May your children curse you and hang their heads in sorrow when they hear the name of their father, the name of the man who disgraced the family name forever.

Only in Britain could you count on being able to see blue smoke stand out clearly against the sky on any given day.
 
2013-06-11 09:56:49 AM  
Man - I released some smoke on my fly through the office this morning, I tell ya!
It wasn't blue - but it sure made some faces green.

Why do they load the planes with colours they won't be using?

I thought they just had one single button, and that one would release whatever colour the canister had been loaded with.

Instead it turns out they have, well, how many colour button do they have?

Yellow button. The yellow button is lemoney.

I can't text and drive, but these guys get to fly a plane and run the smoke machine? That seems like a good idea.
 
2013-06-11 10:19:52 AM  
Well, he didn't bank left into the other planes.  So he got that right.

Colorblindness is a no-no.  Pilots need to be able to see which side of the plane has grass stains on it.

At least he didn't hit the button for polka-dots.

His cock-up was seen by 50,000 people. Heh. Cock-up.

More than three aircraft will produce the same colour at certain points during the display.

I hope he didn't use up all the blue for when he was really supposed to use it then. :P

The government wastes more than the cost of the Red Arrows on paperclips.

To be fair, it is an attractive nuisance, especially if you are a Big Idjit.

I'd like to see some gay activists sabotage the smoke canisters causing a rainbow smoke trail at the next nascar race. Now that would be amusing.

And God said "don't eat from that tree", according to the cdesign proponentsists, and expected Adam and Eve to just not eat from that tree.

Sorry, Reggie.  Bit of a cock-up on the button pushing front.
