    Hey, any landing you can walk away from is a good one!

    But landings you can’t account for might be a problem…

    Dang, you’ve forced into pedant mode. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much forcing.

    Any airline pilot is likely to have a differing number of landings from takeoffs. Perhaps not a lot different, but different — by about the degree in the cartoon. That’s because the planes have two (or more) pilots and one or the other has to officially execute the takeoffs and landings. The other doesn’t log them, at least not as Pilot-in-Command.

    Getting enough landings to stay current is a serious problem for pilots of long-range aircraft, who may spend a lot of hours in the seat but are not on all that many flights.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled cartoons.

    Hey Trebuchet:

    Q: How many geeks does it take to ruin a joke?

    A: You mean nerd, not geek, and you mean riddle, not joke, but go ahead.

    ;-)
