Do you remember the scene in the Life of Brian where the Roman Centurion is correcting Brian's graffiti?

Graeme....this one?
Brian: It says, "Romans go home. "
Centurion: No it doesn't ! What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on !
Brian: Er, "Romanus" !
Centurion: Vocative plural of "Romanus" is?
Brian: Er, er, "Romani" !
Classic stuff......

Uh Reg, if you've done the substitution then there is only one aircraft that comes up!

That's the one Reg...the Poage Eindekker aka the Midwing Special. Do a search for N101SC and you'll find it. Interestingly the FAA register shows N101SC as a PA-18, experimental!

RegDep has control

Oooo you….. It is there as Piper PA-18 Super Cub…..

And I even looked for shoulder-wing, but this one is

One-of-a-kind 'Midwing Special' , originally a Piper PA-18 Super Cub, highly modded with Lycoming O-320, clipped wings, shoulder mounted. Still listed as a PA-18 in current registry.
Moment. I surprised myself empty-handed.

If someone is ready shoot something out, do so, please.

While we wait for Reg.....continuing the story:
Centurion: [Writes "Romani" over Brian's graffiti] "Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go" !
Brian: Er, "Ire". Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt".
Centurion: So, "eunt" is...?
Brian: Third person plural present indicative, "they go".
Centurion: But, "Romans, go home" is an order. So you must use...?
[He twists Brian's ear]
Brian: Aaagh ! The imperative !
Graeme, go to: Life of Brian (1979) - Memorable quotes

Edit to say, Reg, I'm out of silhouettes.....Graeme, you got anything?
