A helicopter pilot and a jet pilot were arguing about which aircraft was the better. To settle the argument, they agreed on a contest that would pit each aircraft's speed, versatility and strength against the other's.
Points would be awarded for each category and at the end of the contest the winner would receive a beautifully-engraved loving cup .
When the helicopter edged out the Jet, its pilot was asked if he had ever been in doubt about winning.
"Never!" he replied.
"Everybody knows that in a contest like this the whirlybird gets the urn!"
