Welcome to the site :)
Nothing I hate about the viper, then again, I've never flown it or worked on it :P
Enjoy your stay

...it's not that we maintenance folks hate all the Vipers, just on occasion one gets under our skin and becomes a sore we can't be rid of...

THAT's when a guy (or gal) wants to roll said Viper (the broken one that fights every effort made to fix it) off the ramp into the drainage ditch at the end, fill the ditch with some spare JP8 and set it on fire.... some days it would be so much easier.

Obviously we never take things that far, we either calm down or prevail over the stubbornness of the hard-broke Viper. :cheers:

BTW, I don't think are there any write-offs for maintenance-rage? (IE Jet parked in ditch and BBQ'd for multiple CND Red-X discrepancies?)

and welcome FuelS!

Keep 'em flyin' (stress free)
