in thread My favorite silent English letter is:

Rather severe misspelling of "mnemonic." Don't ask me how it started; "pneumonic" is certainly a word, and a kind of plague, but the context was short (six or so letter) names for strain gauge locations like "main gearbox -- port forward foot rosette." The author of one of the flight test reports couldn't spell.
