Funny aircraft registrations

Anyone ever takes notice of aircraft registrations and that they sometimes inadvertently spell out a word or have a meaning?

Last week I saw a plane with OK-EGO as it's registration lol.
I also once saw an LH aircraft with D-AHLU as it's registration. In my language that means "stick/place it in!"

Rumour has it that an Irishman called McDonald had/has a aircraft with EIEIO (say the letters out loud for full effect).

Sounds like one of those cases where truth is stranger than fiction.

All the best

To Nerik

Sorry to correct you, but there is no aircraft with D-AHLU at LH. There is one registered D-AILU (A319).

So long, DBate

Talking

In PNG, we had "Obscene Airways" collectively known as
P2-COC, P2-BOX and P2_TIT. Italy has an I-Fu*k (Honest)
and the UK has a few that slipped thro the net ... G-ONAD, as has been spotted, was one. G-BOLX (C172) was another.
No doubt, the spottas amongst you, will have a few more.
Oh, yes G-ROWL a pup from memory.....could be wrong.

Saw a Global Express in Male ...........I-LOVE
30 million dollar way to say I love someone.

Now you want funny names for places try intersections. Have crossed the SHITE intersection and started the approach at BALLS. No Joke.

Kenting Aviation has a photosurvey aircraft - can't remember the type - registered CF-ICU. There used to be a Beaver around here registered CF-ART.

C-GKKK, The pilot would call "klan, turning base". I think tower gave him crap for it though.
