Wrong Number

When I worked in the airforce, the golden rule was not to make assumptions in aircraft maintenance. We had a situation where the part number in the manual was different to the part number in the catalogue. We were told to order it anyway - they were the same. So we called up the supplier and found out that they weren't the same at all! If we got that wrong we could have grounded the aircraft!
