    So this jet comes down "Code 3." That pretty much means the crew thinks it's broke and can't fly another mission. Their brevity code translated into something with the ACM (climate/pressure control module thing IIRC). Our E&E guys get to debrief to talk with the crew. They shut down the ACM mid-flight because of a really foul stench about the whole aircraft.

    E&E finally gets a chance to run some engines and fires up the ACM. They go up there and the jet smells like a hat full of smashed ass. They get the engines running, fire up the ACM, and can't really figure it out. Then they start looking. Someone starts heading to the rear of the aircraft to figure out just where this smell was coming from. Sure enough, passing the latrine, it was strongest. Enter the latrine and there was an explosion of ass in the ****ter. Flush the ****ter, smell dissapates.

    Now, imagine this. Some crewmember dropped a deuce in flight. It stunk so bad the rest of the crew was disturbed by it. Person that dropped said deuce is too embarassed to admit it. So, they come in early, and call maintenance. Now we know the reason. Just how would you sign this off?

    We were thinking of all sorts of ways. "Discovered smell in latrine, toilet ops check good. No smell from ACM." "Smell traced to latrine, fecal matter disposed. ACM check good." "Glade Plug-In installed in Latrine. 2nd flight verification required"

    Super made them CND (could not duplicate) the write-up though.


    Funny ****, literally. 15 man-hours, at least a few hundred dollars worth of JP-8.... all because someone dropped a deuce and wouldn't own up to it.

    That is just too funny. A sh!ter full of poo causes an emergency landing. I have some cousins, who are retired pilots for the Marines, that I am going to tell this story to.

    :confused: :confused: :confused:
    Jeez, now I'm wondering if I'll fit-in with the Air Farce.
    In the Corps, not only would the deuce-dropper have declared it (and probably called for a verifier), he woulda gotten props for it!

    Of course, the Marine would have flushed the f**kin' thing when all was said & done... Maybe your zoomies need some extra toilet training?:haha:

    Thanks for the story. I thoroughly enjoy a/c stories, especially the write-ups. What type of a/c do you work on??

    Here are a few I have saved from somewhere:

    DESCREPANCY: "Left inside main tire almost needs replacement"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Almost replaced left inside main tire"

    DESCREPANCY: "Test flight OK, except autoland very rough"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Autoland not installed on this aircraft"

    DESCREPANCY: "The autopilot doesn't"
    Signed off : "IT DOES NOW"

    DESCREPANCY: "Something loose in the cockpit"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Something tightened in the cockpit"

    DESCREPANCY: "Evidence of hydraulic leak on right main landing gear"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Evidence removed"

    DESCREPANCY: "DME volume unbelievably loud"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Volume set to more believable level"

    DESCREPANCY: "Dead bugs on windshield"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Live bugs on order"

    DESCREPANCY: "Autopilot in altitude hold mode produces a 200 fpm descent"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Cannot reproduce problem on ground"

    DESCREPANCY: "IFF inoperative"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "IFF inoperative in OFF mode"

    DESCREPANCY: "Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "That's what they're there for"

    DESCREPANCY: "Number three engine missing"
    CORRECTIVE ACTION: "Engine found on right wing after brief search"

    That's why you call for the verifier. Gotta have that neutral-2nd-party to observe and verify the claim...

    For the record, thats how it would have been here in Canuckistania.

    Good to see atleast the marines do it right!


    also for the record, this is possibly the funniest thread I've read in a long time....
