Yankee? Certainly you didn't read the text where it mentions half a dozen locations in Australia?

The headline also only makes sense in 'Strine. A 'snag' is a problem, but also a sausage.... Barbies have two wheels, four burners, and usually a few more than one snag. Still, I reckon he's clearly a few prawns short on the barbie... ;)

I noticed that I had posted the wrong photo, and tried to access WIX for the last couple of days to try to fix it, but was unable to get the #$%^& pages to load up.

Tillerman,

Here is one of many misspells that I shake my head at daily. Yes, it is stencilled onto an airplane, and yes, that is black overspray all around it.

My favorite, though, (I don't currently have a photo example) is the upside-down stencilling on the inboard side of the engines where the passengers can see it. VERY professional.

I'm glad we don't paint the Boeing script on our equipment, Martin, or that spelling would become the norm. They have enough trouble with "hoist point", "no step", etc. :roll:

Can anyone convert to English what is being said by the little guy in the LAGG-3 ? Good chance it's not even remotely humorous, but I thought I'd give it a shot.
