I know a popular thread on this board is to have nicknames for airlines on this board (Doesn't Ever Leave The Airport, for example) how about a nickname for individual types of airplanes, which I haven't seen before on the board? I'll get this show started...

Super-80: Subpar-80
CRJ: CRappyJet
DC-9: DeadCorpse-9

"SMURF JET"

KLM Cityhopper. Shithopper! I heard it once near the runway at AMS while spotting. I guess because it is very boring to see them whole day out here.


I love both Airbus and Boeing as much as I love aviation!

I see a lot of New Jersey Air National Guard KC-135s flying patterns near my house, I call them "Old Smokies" for obvious reasons.
