    I was looking at some of your usernames and got curious about where you got them and what do they mean?

    I got P38 Pilot because of 2 reasons:

    1) Its my favorite WWII Aircraft
    2) My great uncle was in the 1181st Engineers and built landing strips for aircraft in the Mariannas and the Phillipines during WWII. One story he told me was how a squadron of P38s landed and asked my Great Uncle who built the landing strip. He built it but said said,
    "The 1181st built it."
    The P38 Pilot replied, "This is the best landing strip since we were back in the States. Nice work!"

    FLYBOYJ = 3 angles. My wife got a personalized license plate for me for my birthday, FLYBOY was taken so she used the first letter of my first name. A whole bunch of us used to play trivial pursuit at a restaurant and my moniker was "FLYBOY" given to me by a former roomate. One night when I was wearing a flight jacket some chick started to get real flirty with me while my wife (at the time girlfriend) was standing there. She kept calling me "Flyboy." After that several friends started razzing me over it...

    The rest is history....

    Pretty easy, my nickname given to me by my father and mother when I was small, it is short for Hendrik and everyone knows me by Henk. I just do not like to think of names so I used it. Plain and simple.
