But if your engine failed at NIGHT, it would make for less of a workload, because it would save you that extra step of CLOSING YOUR EYES, which of course is the first thing you do when the engine dies.

No, no, you flip on the landing light.  If you don't like what you see, just turn it back off!
God looks out for drunks and dumb animals.  Fortunately, I qualify on both counts.

Hahaha, that's a funny strip, but I can't understand why several magazines didn't like it, it's a joke afterall, well partly :D

People in the US are very sensitive. For example TAP said no because they were worried about Cessna, who is one of their biggest customers, finding out and being upset that we slam their product...
Actually a valid point so we're not mad. TAP almost got sued once before because of us, believe it or not...  ::loony::

Another magazine was worried about the Skymaster-Club (I guess there actually is such a thing) getting upset with them and dropping their ad's ....


You'd be amazed how many lives a strip with chickens flying airplanes can affect . . .   ;) ;D
