When I was in the ATC many moons ago (97 squadron) one of the officers was a chap by the name of Bill Goody. He was a really nice bloke who had a great way with kids and treated us to all kinds of stories about his time as a Mozzie pilot.

His kindness has always stayed with me, and his call-sign was Cricket23.

So, my little tribute to him.

Mine is pretty much self-explained...

Do Glamgirls find scruffy bachelor pilot types attractive? I clean up nice, and I'd look good on your arm, I bet!

Most Glamgirls will complement a gentleman's arm with their presence, however the trick is achieving the goal of making her look great by virtue of your presence.
If you do indeed scrub up nicely, then you are half way there.

I'm just slightly batty, and that's where I keep them. Besides, bats do fly, don't they?

Mine is pretty simple - its a tribute to the best handle i have seen so far:
Paul de Gearup

flap sup, can you elaborate?

I wrote them
SOPS, really?
Can you come to my next dinner party? I'm sure my guests would love to be enlightened about SOPS.

V2

I thought it might irritate people. I wish I had made it The Captain Speedbird in retrospect.

I used to be two faced 'J-NUS' (That's J not A) but a mod sense of humour failure ended up with the poor sod miserabled to the point of paralysis. He still lives, but in a shadowy world of log-outs, time-outs, and blank screens.
Captain Speedbird, too bad about "J-Nus," but do not despair; your former handle will go down in the anals of PPRuNe for its outstanding creativity.

V2

I think we should be told about the author of the 'Wearing uniform in public' thread

mustpost, Another thing I must have missed.

V2

My previously registered name was permanently banned; as were others following a protracted pointless war of words with the "management" with me anxious to prove my point and them anxious to demonstrate how macho they were. I eventually had a somewhat pyrrhic victory and they backed down - kind of.

I therefore registered as Sisemen (nemesis) for obvious reasons - and if that one gets mucked about with for no good reason then there will be trouble
sisemen, ahhhhh, the reverse spelling trick.

!GMO-2V

nemesis - rats! why didn't I get that? Not bright enough I have to conclude
I'd explain mine but it would upset some people on another forum known for industrial confrontation.
Basil/lisaB, nemesis/siseman has started something. We may become obsessive about it, and will back-spelling all the handles looking for secret codes, the meaning of life, the exact location of Jimmy Hoffa's grave etc.

Monty Python, and a lack of creativity!

I definately vote for Buster as one of the best.
A Comfy Chair, no lack of creativity there, ACC. I like it!

The Multifunction Control and Diplay Unit (MCDU) on the Airbus is affectionately know as the 'McDoo' by pilots. Was 'Cap'n Sidestick' for many years but left PPRuNe after 9-11 coz of all the crap being spouted. Came back a few years later and had forgotten my log in details... D'oh.
McDoo, thanks for that....although I am a fan of that great American aerospace company....you know, the one that starts with "B."

V2

Ever since i gained my PPL and CPL. i have always loved Ultralight and minimum aircraft, now im earning a living flying them.not only that, people have said i am a little unusual, and flying them is considered dangerous to the general public and you have to be nuts to fly them.
Ultralights, flying is flying. It's all good, man!

V2

Pythonesque.

Wodawick - shortened to Wod.
Wod, I love your location. An old flying boat station...

Wow! Sounds like the stuff of dreams.

After solving the world's problems over several bottles of red, with the skipper I boarded with, he christened me, an F/O, Capt Claret.

I vaguely recall a similar thread on this subject prior to the great server crash. In it, folks voted for the best names. I still think Buster Hyman is the best nick on this BB.

The AvgasDinosaur

Does exactly what is says on the tin.
I am a Dinosaur and I really appreciate the older transport types. "115/145 truly nectar of the skygods" Being of a certain age these were the types I grew up with. I would love to have the brass ( cash and balls !) to trace the guys who flew Yorks, Vikings, DC-3,4,6,7, Constellations, Heremes, C-123, C-124 etc and publish their war stories with my own book company.
I will never ever catch up up with reality, I now have great affection for Diesel 8, 707, Tristar, DC-10 and classic 747s and their crews. Not forgetting Britannia and CL-44s, 1-11, Comets.
Any flight engineers out there looking for a title for their autobiography how about "Around the world sideways - the true view from the most important seat in the house"
In tropical fish keeping circles I have the nom-de-plume "dwarfhunter" as I love keeping dwarf cichlids !
Always a clue in the title.
Be lucky

Haven't trawled through 15 odd pages, but mine. I have aready let on before so forget it....favourites though..

Burnt Fish Tousers, just fantastic in this wierd surreal way, I mean I try to eat some fish a couple of times a weak, and I adore some crispy, yet oily salmon skin on a really lovely cut of Salmon, and, without fail, Burnt Fish Trousers comes to mind, can't fecking remember a thing he/she ever posted, but a great name.

Buster Hymen, always remids me of the American swimmer from Sydney Olympics, Misty Hymen (?)...pricelesss,

Labia Votex.............what a handle!..brilliant,...(You go girl!, need a hand, just call )

Not unlike Burnt Fish Trousers, I haven't seen for ages, CUNNING LINGUIST, get that man (or woman , a drink!)

Is it a bird, is it a plane (or perhaps it's a boat?)

Hi Everyone

I'm a very fortunate individual who owns and operates this amazing machine that goes some way to explaining my PPRuNe name. Anyone who flies and is reading this will well know that feeling of flying over a beautiful waterway in the summer, be it a river or lake, with a white sandy beach, just wishing you could land somewhere to go for a swim. Well we have the extraordinary ability to glide down and with a gentle woosh on the hull, pull up at a place no ordinary aeroplane can go (well it might go there, but can't take off again aka Capt Sully's A320!) Once you've tasted water flying you cannot go back. When all you regular aviators are attending some fly-in at a dusty aerodrome miles from town swathed in heat and flies, myself and the rest of us from the Seaplane Pilots Association of Australia are at a splash-in frolicing in the crystal waters and enjoying scenes, vistas and flying experiences one can't begin to imagine unless you've done it. An amphibious aircraft like this Lake Renegade opens a whole new world and that's why I'm a RenegadeMan .

Thanks to all contributors on PPRuNe, it's a great community!

regards

Rene

harrowing

harro: from a common, or rather, regular nickname based on my surname
wing: from, you guessed it, aviation
Tony Draper called it very down to earth or agricultural.
Others, less generous, use it to descibe their flying experience with me.

Capt Claret - a great moniker - it rather becomes you

Now where did I put that bottle...

Mine is the aircraft I most want a flight in. IMHO the best looking jetline ever built. I know it ain't gonna happen but never mind. I've flown in the next best (DH89A) and next best after that though (DC-3).
