Best leaking engine quote ever...

From AP story about 70 year career airplane mechanic Azriel Blackman, who has no plans to retire:

"Back on the ground, he said modern jet engines are more reliable than vintage engines like the DC-3's.

"These leak oil all over the place," Blackman said. "When they're not leaking oil, it's not good. They're not running well."
