hope all is well with you this mid-October? Well it's
been quite a hectic past couple months here at the FNC, especially with
our fearless leader Dave 'The Cyber Kid' who had an interesting event
happen to him at the end of September. Just a few weeks ago, Dave
"The Flight Guy" had a malfunction of the nose gear extension
actuator which resulted in a failure of the nose gear to extend.
After many futile attempts to troubleshoot the problem, the Cyber Kid was
left with only one option, to land the aircraft with only the main gear
down and locked.
FUBAR Aviation Division (FAD) was not at all surprised to learn the
outcome of the incident was nothing more than a scraped underside of the
nose and precautionary tear-down of the engines as he was able to shut
them off prior to the nose impacting the runway; a testiment to Dave's
twelve years of flying experience. All in all it was the best
possible outcome for the situation and Dave was rewarded with a case of
BEvERages for his efforts.
FUBAR Accident and Transportation Safety Board (FATSB) investigating the
incident have not ruled out foul play as part of their findings into the
incident. A spokesperson had this to say, "We are conducting a
thorough investigation and as soon as we know if there was foul-play here,
we will let you know." When asked if they had any suspects, the
spokesperson added, "Not at this time, but we understand Dave has had
extensive dealings with various "tagged" individuals, including
Mark "the Armadillo" Avellino, Chris "Sticky Thumbs"
Roth and the Russo Crime Family. We are looking at all of these
persons and others as to a motive and they will be brought in for
questioning if and only if the case takes that route. Until then, we
have nothing further."
FNC have begun there own investigation into the incident and as we learn
more, so we shall pass it onto you, our loyal comrades. During out
initial investigation however, it should be noted, that the FNC learned
that Jeff "The Film Critic" Engel was suddenly called into work
around the same time as The Cyber Kid's incident. Eyewitnesses say
they also observed an argument between Dave and Mr. Engel only a couple
days before in which the two men argued about dog behaviors. Jeff
was said to have been "quite miffed" as one person put it.
witnesses say they saw Mr. Engel and the Cyber Kid the very day of the
incident at the airport only a few hours before the flight having lunch
and that they were both "jovial" but the whole thing was
suspicious as Jeff, "never comes to this FBO, but maybe it was the
free food today?" said one source. FNC has tried,
unsuccessfully, to reach Mr. Engel for comment, but as of time of
printing, he refuses to return our calls. The details at this point
are, sketchy at best, but we are working the case 24-7.
until we know more, we have turned our findings over to the FATSB for
further investigation and will continue to conduct our own in-house
assessment. As soon as the details become clearer, we will provide
you with the info.
again, this has been your faithful and loyal news service bringing you
only the crap you sort of want to read. Until next time, once again,
stay out or trouble, we're watching you (especially you Jesse!).
