Maxwell's Aircraft Preflight Tutorial

In honor of Aviation History Month (observed each November), Maxwell will instruct you on how to properly preflight the plane before takeoff.

"A good walkaround is Priority 1."

"First, you check all the control surfaces, like the flaps..."
"...and the elevator and rudder."
"Oil and brake fluid look good. They'd better - I just emptied
my kibble account to pay for that annual!"
"Yup, fuel is to the tabs."
"Now where'd I put that pesky fuel tester? ...FARADAY!"
  
"Looking good - let's fire her up!"

  6. MOUSES! I didn't think my comment had gone through so I clicked a second time. Sorry 'bout that.

    Truth be told, I clicked a third time in there, too. Guess one of those times, it really didn't go through, huh?

  16. You lucky kitties to have your own plane, Is it a one seater or a two seater? We know Raz at the Florida Furkids wanted one of those but don't know of he ever got it. Please be careful when you take flight. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  19. Apparently the American Airlines cat did NOT perform a proper preflight check for your mother's plane. Maybe you should send them your resume.
