In 2004, a movie came out entitled “Soul Plane.” Having a NetFlix account with unlimited rentals, I decided to go against both my sanity and better judgment and rent it. My love for aviation won out against my love for avoiding horrible movies, as it did previously with “Snakes on a Plane” (for dignity’s sake I must note that I’m a movie buff and my true taste should in no way be confused with the mention of these two movies…upon penalty of death.) The movie stars Tom Arnold and Snoop Dogg and basically fails miserably in its attempt to be anywhere close to funny. I want to say it follows a similar plot to that of the movie “Airplane”, but that would be blasphemy, so forget I mentioned it.
Rather than turn it off, I decided to keep an eye out for movie mistakes. That didn’t last too long because I fell asleep for half of it. To quench my own curiosity, I did however look up some mistakes and found that the center console of the plane had three thrust levers despite the fact that it was a Boeing 747 having 4 engines. There, I just eliminated any lingering reason you may have had for watching the movie.
Anyway, I could write up a “99 Thesis” on why this movie stinks and nail it to Snoop Dogg’s door, but let’s turn our focus toward the real Soul of a Plane…the engine.
Soul maintenance for your aircraft falls on you, but it is a mutually beneficial situation. You keep the aircraft running like a dream…it brings you enjoyment, freedom and a sense of overall satisfaction.
Below we’ve provided you with what you need to keep the soul ball rolling. You can view all of our Aircraft Engine Parts & Maintenance products here to find everything you need to maintain a happy engine. For a quick jump to some specific sections, link out from the categories below.
Well, that’s it for this week everyone, take care (and don’t rent Soul Plane)!
