    I would name mine "Speedy Gonzales." After the fast little mouse that came out in cartoons.

    I'd have to spend some time with it to see what characteristics stood out so as I could come up with a name.

    When I was a crewman in Patrol Squadron FIFTY (The Blue Dragons) our crew wanted to go with Dragon-ass Airlines, but for some weird reason, the skipper wouldn't buy off on that.

    Go Figure!

    Ok, if I am in a bomber, fighter, or transport, the names would be a little different I think.
    Bomber -b-24 15th Airforce, Megan's Fire, with noce art of a Pritty Redhead :)
    Fighter, Spitfire, Princess Elizabeth, the Royals stayed home, she was a classy girl even so young. Or maybe St. Paul's that big church stayed standing.
    Transport, PBM-5 Morean -Art work of Mrs. O'Haira on nose.

    So all a bit much? Please let me know.

    Yes, but did he use dull/crimson or did he use the bright red I'm thinking about? And then maybe the Red/White striping like on the late F190 Ds, except the white would be replaced by black, and the red would match the cowling (red paint) color.
