A (true) cockpit voice recorder story.

The 4 jet Nimrod MPA arrives on task and IAW SOPs shuts down the 2 outboard engines to save fuel.

A few hours into the sortie the 1st pilot decides to go back to talk to the (button pusher :wink: ) aircraft captain in the tactical area and see how things are going with their tracking of a Type 6 Soviet nuclear submarine.

Shortly after, the (very young) copilot declares an emergency. A fire in the port inboard engine. The 1st pilot does a "chariots of fire" run back to the flight deck.

In accordance with the Flight Reference Cards the (very young) copilot carries out the shutdown procedure for the burning engine.

The last thing heard on the CVR - before all 4 generators are lost and the standby system fails to engage - is from the hairy assed flight engineer to the (very young) copilot:

THAT'S THE WRONG FUCKING ENG..................................................

At that point the aircraft becomes an 80 ton glider.

Luckily, the 1st pilot gets back into the LH seat and - with help from the hairy assed flight engineer - relights an outboard engine.

Tell me about it. :lol:

No! You definitely don’t want to go near Melbourne for a while. :shock:


Melbourne is out of control.

It just amazes me how we have extremely low numbers in every other state apart from Melbourne which is on an exponential COVID curve.

And the weird thing is that Victoria had the toughest restrictions. Go figure that one.

So this COVID thing doesn't obey rules.


Can anyone explain why only Melbourne has been hit hard and not the rest of the country?


There are a number of things and some the Government is trying to cover up.

Just some background. Victoria is referred to as the People’s Republic of Victoria. It has a very woke, and left wing Government. A nutter in the truest sense who has introduced 765 different genders. You get the idea. The Premier there is batshit stupid.

When the Australian ADF was mobilised at airports, checkpoints in a supporting role to the police, the Victorian Government objected to the military being on the streets. So in Victoria, they employed lowly trained security guards to transport people to i salt ion centres and hotels. Everywhere else, that was the responsibility of the military.

So what happened was the isolated were able to bribe the private security guards to go out and do stuff. Well done had COVID and it was transmitted to the rest of the community. In addition to this, there are reports that some security guards were having sex with isolated persons in the hotels, and the guards also spread it to the outside community.

Also, whilst everyone else had to abide by restrictions, there was a BLM protest with 40,000 demonstrators not exactly social distancing.

Then the disease infiltrated old aged care facilities. It was going from one facility to the next because the staff were spreading it.

So now it is beyond out of control.

The military have now been called into Victoria. They are at airports, checkpoints and on borders.

This is a lot more common than most people think. Seen hairy assed Captains do it as well.

That’s why the flying duties are split to Pilot Flying and Pilot Not Flying.

Pilot NOT Flying runs the check lists. When you go for the Fuel Shut Off to shut an engine down, PNF checks the engine indications to identify the correct engine, then states Fuel Shut Off left or right or number 1, 2, 3 or 4 as the case maybe.

PF must confirm and then give the command: close.

PF could be the FO but must give the command to close as PF.

The hardest role is the PNF Role. There are a lot of check lists.

But back to shutting down the wrong engine. Mistakes like this can easily occur when workloads and stress are at their highest. Which is why we have procedures in place to avoid this situation. It happens a fair bit in the sim. I’ve done it once. In my case I placed my hand by mistake on the wrong shut off lever. An error that was picked up by the PF in the confirmation process.

Also, Sim instructors sometimes tell the PNF to put hand on wrong lever to test the PF out and see the response. You get this little trick at least once in the sim.
