A totally objective and unbiased accident investigation report.

Accident Brief

No. 3 Brief

 Summary of No. 3 Brief dated October 1917

 Major W. de Kitkag-Watney's Neuport Scout was extensively damaged when it
 failed to become airborne.

 The original court of Inquiry found that the primary cause of the accident
 was carelessness and poor airmanship on the part of  a very experienced
 pilot.

 The Commandant General, however, not being wholly convinced that Major de
 Kitkag-Watney could be guilty of so culpable a mistake ordered that the
 court should be re-convened.

 After extensive inquiries and lengthy discussions with the Meteorlogical
 Officer and Astronomer Royal, the Court came to the conclusion that the
 pilot unfortunately was authorized to fly his aircraft on a day when there
 was absolutely no lift in the air and could not be held responsible for
the accident.

 The Court wishes to take this opportunity to extend congratulations to
Major de Kitkag-Watney  on his reprieve and also on his engagement to the
 Commandant General's daughter, which was announced shortly before the
 accident.

LOL. Don't you just hate it when there is "absolutely no lift in the air"?

I guess the undue command influence just sucked the air right out of the sky.

Would that be a command vacuum then?

So the thrust of your pun is that would be a drag?

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."
