Are there any lists that include the best/funniest/creative names pilots gave their planes?

I only know a few...

I've been watching ~ was hoping there would be more posts. My husband has a book of noseart, includes full photos of the aircraft, close up shots of the noseart itself, and each one has the patch attached which that particular unit wore.  It's a pretty awsome book, in fact.  Maybe I'll dig it out.Smiley

I seem to recall seeing a photo of a battle-damaged B17 called "the Iron Ass."

Rino's post is the one that made me think of it.  "My aching back" is one of the ones featured in that book I was talking about. I did look at the book again.  It was really interesting, and fantastic pictures.  None, I think, are striking though.  The standard half-nude women with catchy names bit.... (hmmm... now that I'm thinking of it, I guess that's why TxDad bought it to begin with).  But I didn't see any that I liked enough to share.  Have to keep searching I think. Smiley
