[An “Air Abort” is a situation whereby the aircraft cannot continue flying due to weather or operational or technical reasons].
On this fateful day at our Flight Line, the young EO (Engineering Officer) had a multitude of distractions, most notable being his new married life. Others notable being: Their batman was on leave, and the couple was running errands. Flight Line was having a field day, with a loads and loads of flying effort.
In the morning, the noujawan had committed his better half (who was a working lady too) that he will sure get the milk boiled and refrigerated in time. And in fact, before coming late to office, he did receive the milk from milk-man (but missed the most important part: preserving it).
The momentous day became more unforgiving when an aircraft with a VIP onboard had an air abort, and henceforth all the time and energies of the officer went into it, leaving everything aside.
At sunset, he had a phone call by the returned-from-office lady. After the exchange of pleasantries, the couple cried about the spilt milk.
The gentleman tried to explain that: “An air abort is a situation whereby the aircraft cannot continue flying due to …………….”.
The lady interrupted, “Whatsoever it is…… Air Abort or Land Abort or Sea Abort…….. One Kilo of Milk Abort matters more than everything else in this world…”.
