Silence is golden...... Duct tape is silver

Everything works with smoke, if the smoke escapes, it stops working.

Alloys, not steel
It's a generic term, sak jou kuite!

Antonov An-225
Generally acknowledged as the largest airplane in the world, the single Antonov An-225 is the world's heaviest aircraft ever (maximum takeoff weight greater than 640 tons) and the largest heavier-than-air aircraft (in length and wingspan) ever entering operational service.



640 ton!!!!!
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

It's the only AN-225 flying, however there are 3 more examples that rumour has it are being rebuilt for operational life.
Just because your bachelors did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.
