Never before have I more clearly seen the connection between flying machines and homoerotic/hyper-masculine symbolism.
I wonder if there is an aircraft called "Buckmaster" or "Manhole".

I agree, hatchetjack. And car names have always cracked me up. Hummer, Probe, Ram, Lancer... Why not just give in and call it "Big Throbbing Man Meat"?

Absolutely fabulously geeky post. Thanks breezeway. I'm off to learn the cockpit of the Grumman Avenger....

When I hover the cursor over "Starlifter," I see "Shirtlifer." What's up with that?

I'm planning to make a trip over to Dayton to see the USAF Museum when the weather's a little more convenient for walking around outside looking at parked aircraft. I hope I get to look inside a few; instrument panels are fascinating. One of my happier memories is when a C-130 driver at an air show let my son, then 7, play in the pilot's seat for almost half an hour.
