A&P school a waste of time...

... when all you really need is animal husbandry:

Nepal's state-run airline has confirmed that it sacrificed two goats to appease a Hindu god, following technical problems with one of its aircraft.

Nepal Airlines said the animals were slaughtered in front of the plane - a Boeing 757 - at Kathmandu airport.

The offering was made to Akash Bhairab, the Hindu god of sky protection, whose symbol is seen on the company's planes.

The airline said that after Sunday's ceremony the plane successfully completed a flight to Hong Kong.

I wonder if this could be the secret to improving my landings....

  1. "In Akash Bhairab we trust" Have you seen the symbol of the god of sky protection? Is it a nike-like swoosh? Sounds like it might be a neat adornment to an RV fuselage.
