Black smoke begins to fill your cockpit, as sparks shoot out from the instrument panel!

“Now, at times, smoke can be helpful, like when you want to preserve meat! I remember coming back from a survival training program at Eglin Air Force Base where I had learned to smoke beef. I got home and like a big shot, wanted to show my friends how much I learned! So in the back yard, I set up a teepee kind of affair with parachute fabric, and quite professionally hung strips of beef on wires inside and set up an interior smoker with charcoal. A few hours later when I checked up on it, the whole daggone thing had burned down! Anyway, smoke is good for producing colored military signals, and protecting orchards from freezing! But this is not good smoke you're seeing here, so I suggest you dial 911 and talk to William Shatner!”
