A friend of mine has a Cessna 150 he rebuilt after it was blown over in a storm. It is called Mr Bojangles.

When I acquired the RV, my partner almost immediately anthropomorphized it: Its rego is SOL, so, of course, its name needs to be “Solly.” The fairings on the wheels (spats or pants, depending on whether you’re anglo or American) became Solly’s shoes. Everyone gets upset if you stand on his shoes. When I installed the autopilot a couple of years ago, she christened it, “Barry.” So now we climb aboard Solly and let Barry do the flying. Traditionally boats and airplanes have been feminine, but she went in a different direction, which I thought was a bit interesting. - mark _______________________________________________ Aus-soaring mailing list Aus-soaring@lists.base64.com.au http://lists.base64.com.au/listinfo/aus-soaring
