I have more pictures to share - my fascination was with the tail images, and the pilots nicknames, as evidenced by this primarily photo blog.


GizmoThis had special meaning to me, as I have a rescued cat named Gizmo. Not sure the LT would like the reference.


BeenieI can only imagine "how" these nicknames are earned!



Really, don't you think this is a very specific nickname????? 



Lt CDR Chuckles......well, his plane on the flight deck at least.


Creepy JakeWe all loved this name!


DozerOk, there were probably a million other pictures, but I could not avoid the nicknames and the tail insignia...



The bronze statue of the namesake of the ship...This ship is unique in that their namesake is still living, has visited twice and writes personal letters to the departing sailors thanking them for their service.


MopeyAnd one of the seven dwarfs...I did not see the other six names anywhere that I recall..


Tio Pepe

And , of course, Uncle Pepe....who could fly without him.

The service is one great organization filled with traditions and wonderful life long relationships.  I came from a family where both of my parents served and my dad was a career officer.  The stories behind the nicknames, now that is fun!  Thanks for sharing, love the post and memories it brought back to me.

Carol - Great pictures. It's interesting seeing the nicknames of the pilots. More interesting is to find out how they get those nicknames.

Your fascination sounds like mine when I am at a marina... looking at the boat's name! Love it! I actually did not know that pilots get to put their "signatures" on some of those "babies". Very cool!
