    Lol, yeah. IIRC (which I probably don't) some guy in the UK popped the chute when he got lost.

    This one I think https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-22798139 although I must admit I didn't bother searching for the accident report so may have got the details completely wrong.

    edit:- I did get the details wrong. He apparently got disorientated on an instrument approach https://www.gov.uk/aaib-reports/cirr...ct-6-june-2013 and so 'pulled the pin'.

    Definitely used a starting handle on an Alvis TA14 and on the Lister stationary engine, probably on an A35 in the past too

    Not since the 80's when we used to have diesel dump trucks on sites, lungs that was a while ago.
