    "Low visibility isn't the worst problem a pilot faces- the inboard(sic) HGS system can land the plane with zero visibility if it knows the runway GPS. The HGS converts signals from an airport's Instrument Landing System into a virtual image of the runway displayed on the monitor."

    So what is the worst problem a pilot faces?

    That's so awful, it reminds me of the Bulwer-Lytton annual contest, which is a contest to see who can write the absolute worst opening sentence of a novel. (Fortunately, the entrants only have to write the first sentence of the novel, not the whole thing!)

    http://www.bulwer-lytton.com/

    Check it out, some of them are hilarious in their awfulness.

    The winner from last year:

    Well for me it'd be no beer and no boobies. But that's me.

    I don't think that is specific to pilots.

    Heck, my Skyhawk could go faster than "Mach .083" with the barn doors out.
