Then again, they can be very blasé about things. On the gruesome side, I was operating a Canadian registered DHC-5E, C-DOG. A sudanese gent was running away with a jerry can from the mound of stuff we where unloading in a small strip in Sudan, Pachalla. Well we always kept one turning on the ground in the remote strips, as the APU was soooo reliable. Well the unfortunate thief ran through the prop arc, reliving him of his head. The Sudanese police on the spot where not concerned, he was a thief and deserved it, Allah's will and all that. So mildly concerned, I got on the sat phone to MOT when I got back to Loki to see what mound of forms I needed to fill out.
Well, MOT goes; Sudanese not concerned? So we are not concerned. Just get all the blood off the airplane, it is really corrosive, -click-.

As for the federallies up here, true they never had much time/inclination to check us boonie pilots but now they're training the RCMP to do ramp checks, as well as other hassle factor thingies to other types of licencees (boats, rv's, etc. Can you imagine a cop doing a ramp check??
