Re: Best leaking engine quote ever...
In the best of all possible worlds, you would be dead on correct.
However, most times we are left to do the best we can with what we're given. Many engines (why does my mind always want to add "British" to that description?) are simply known as "leakers" as many have posted earlier.
Unfortunately, fixing every leak at the first sign of seepage would lead to extensive down time for maintenance/repairs. That's OK for some things, but in many cases it gets in the way of enjoying your toy or in many military cases accomplishing the mission.
