Ground Activated Guillotine Apparatus
As followers of our epic Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) project will know, we recently laid our grubby mitts on a RockBLOCK Iridium satellite comms unit, courtesy of Rock Seven, and we're now giving one linguistically deft reader the chance to do the same. Top and bottom views of the RockBLOCK In fact, this is …
I didn't see a rule restricting multiple entries so here goes:
CRUFTS - Craft Returns Uncontrolled From The Sky
GIVE-UP - Gravity Initiates Vehicular Equipment's Unconditional Precipitation
UPLIFTED - Unconditional Panic Letting It Fall To Earth Deliberately
And my personal favorite

If we're going to have MILEY, it should surely be:
