Aviation Jokes & Humour

During an episode of bad weather in Scotland UK, a News group reported live from Edinburgh airport; stating that no airports were correctly open and nothing was flying due to the conditions. While the live feed was being broadcast; a pair of Eurofighter Typhoons based at RAF Leuchars in Fife Scotland, rattled over the top!

 

A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight. While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asks, "What was your last known position?" The reply:
"When I was number one for takeoff".
