Cautionary Tales Short – A Screw Loose At 17,000ft

13th May, 2022

Cautionary Tales will be back next Friday (and every other Friday thereafter). For  Pushkin+ subscribers, I proudly present another Cautionary Tales “Short”.


The ideal source on Maintenance Guy and his travails is Matt Parker’s wonderful book Humble Pi; the official accident report (pdf) is also worth reading.

The terrifying aftermath was described in contemporary reports from the Sunday Mercury, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The New York Times and the Financial Times.
