Saying you lost something in the cockpit can work once or twice.

Turning the wrong way can also lead

We fervently hope these examples of how NOT to get in your tattered bird of prey have been helpful and educational for you.

Now.. last but not least.. the one type of Nieuport Mounting method to not even try.
