Other meanings for the word "blivet" include
- an external fuel bladder sometimes used to increase the range of bombers
- a sac or pouch constructed of rubber or other thin, flexible material.
- any sort of expedient solution to a problem.
Can't vouch for the accuracy of these definitions, since I didn't go

Who has done some "hangar flying" himself.
