Best leaking engine quote ever...
Comin back the Carolina's in 2 engine turbo prop, with about 60 of us on board.
I was on the starboard wing seat. An hour in the air with drink in hand I noticed a fine yellow run down the engine cowl starting from the forward end of the engine.
I notified the steward and shortly afterwards a very young pilot sat down beside me. He looked across me and then asked what did I think. I told him that to watch to turbo / oil pressure and temps. As long as there was a streak we were good and to get me home. I was hoping that at 5k, a good glide path would get me there if he could baby it for another 45 min ;-) He did and no one but knew the reason for a number of bright red vehicles standing by as we made final approach.
