I agree with you. I'm a jet engine mechanic of 30 years and I think that the engineers be required to perform hands on maintenance on the things before putting them in the field. That would take care of almost all the problems.

I quit A level maths twenty years ago. Since then, the only time I have ever used Maths is when teaching it!! And when "Pythagorus Theory" came to me it was like a bulb went on, and I had so much fun... it was like being in Year 5 all over - but not having to do anything!!!
