New, unread, unmarked. Which WWI types were known as the Rumpety, Gnome Sandwich, Blockbuster, Bognor Bloater and Harry Tate? Where will you find a Pig, Possum and Plastic Parrot? This book will tell you. John Horton has compiled a comprehensive A-Z of aircraft names which is a rich and fascinating as the history of aviation itself. This book explores evocative names such as Aardvark, which refers to the General Dynamics F-111 and its service use rather than its appearances a great long nose grubbing the dirt. The subculture of informal and colloquial names has remained as vigorous and inventive throughout the century and Horton covers models from WWI to Vietnam. Such names not only tend to be humorous and anecdotal in nature, but also reveal the more interesting characteristics of the aircraft concerned. ; 256 pages
