7 fun things to do @ the flying field

here is a bit of flying field humor

1:If your aircraft goes out of control, it is polite to warn other pilots of the fact by calling out "HEADS UP!". Diving under a table and yelling "YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN, SUCKERS!" is not considered appropriate behavior.

2:Always inform the other pilots of your intentions, your intention to takeoff, your intention to land, and your intention to make a big crater in the middle of the runway (it's always hard taxiing around those fuselage tails sticking out of the ground).

3:When walking up to the runway for landing, it is impolite to walk between two people using a buddy box

4:It's considered bad manners to yell at someone who's been tying up the runway, even for a substantial length of time. After all, that's what water balloon bombs are for.

5:It is the ultimate in bad manners to run over someone else's plane when backing out of the parking area, unless that plane is the only one with half a chance at beating you in the next contest.

6:It is not only rude but against club rules to buzz the pits, the road, or the parking area. On the other hand, the guy mowing the strip is always fair game.

7:Always be considerate and patient with a beginner pilot who comes to the flying field with a trainer. Someday he'll be a reckless egotistical pilot, just like you.
Rule Number 1 - RenoRacer is always right.
Rule Number 2 - If RenoRacer is wrong, see Rule Number 1.

How about:

When in combat, it is considered unfair (though a gauranteed win) to aim your plane at the pilot and crop his haircut rather than his plane.
