What is it with childish names. Tiffie (or is it Tiffy), Dave, Wokka, Tonka. Pathetic and tragic.

Jag, Herk, leaping heap, tomb, flying flick knife, the list is endless and in most cases come from the users themselves so maybe it is you who is 'P and T'.

You'll find traveller in the dictionary, unlike wokka and tiffy. It describes a person who regularly travels to see the world. That's me. Highly successful, financially affluent, well travelled and experienced in global affairs, in fact highly thought of by my peers.

Jag and Herc are merely abbreviations which I can understand. Completely irrelevant nicknames I don't.

Makes me chuckle when I see someone telling people how great they are. More so when they've acted like a total tit.

The various nicknames may not be in the dictionary but they are names given to them in service.

Methinks his tongue might have been in his cheek just a little :clown:

Unfortunately I believe Traveller was being quite serious in his response! As to abbreviations whether aircraft related or otherwise, does it really matter?

A "747" is still a "Jumbo Jet" in my lifetime! :smile:

The nose appears to dip really sharply just prior to the main wheels blowing, almost as though the brakes were applied or a system fault causes them to apply.

Good job keeping that one on the straight and narrow though, looked close to rotation too.

Don't be so hard on yourself Traveller, I am sure things will get better for you soon.

I know that Harrier Jump Jet seems to annoy people quite a lot, didn't realise it was the same for Wokka, Jumbo Jet, Bone etc. What the heck is a flying flick knife anyway?

:shock: I hope all the wittle horsies and doggies and bunnies never got to wee-wee or poo-poo after the nasty Tiffie tyres went pop!

I'm guessing all those Americans are pathetic and tragic too, with their Buffs, Slufs, Bones, Tooms, Double Uglies, Willy Fudds, Spads, Rhinos, Warthogs, Thuds, Huns, Deuces, Varks, Banjos, Eggs, Fat Alberts, Hummers, Hueys, Scooters, Sleds, Whales etc etc etc

I'm sure you probably had some nicknames at school as well? :whistle:

It looks pretty much at the same time, as if a sudden brake application caused the nose dip and tyre burst. Interesting.

For the record, I hate aircraft nicknames as well but I am clearly not in the same league as Traveller in terms of personal achievement and self-aggrandisement.

Well I don't know about "highly" thought of, but in his line of work he's done reasonably well...though didn't quite make it to "full" ambassador...and I wouldn't care to talk about his personal finances but he's certainly made it as far as Russia and Slovakia!

One wonders if he thinks a little too highly of himself, though, certainly for someone so highly thought of he never seems to convince anyone on here that he's right, and he certainly seems over concerned with things such a man would care so little about.

Must be something to do with the background you come from as i use nicknames and have one in mind just now! :whistle: I mean, WTF does financially affluent mean? :lol:
