I'm always amazed for the growing number of a.netters who join periodically and for the nicknames used to post messages. Although some of them are clearly understandable (name + favourite aircraft, favourite route, etc), others have likely unknown origins for most of the users.
Mine, for instance, is the English translation of the name of Alitalia's old logo, la Freccia Alata, which is no longer in use. I choosed it because at the time I registered on a.net I used to work for AZ
and I thought it was on original way to let others know. But, of course, is not so obvious.
The nicknames we choose are surely civil aviation related, so I hope this thread won't be deleted soon. If you're willing to share the origins of your a.net nickname, just take a moment to turn your attention from usual topics to post a little message here. Otherwise don't judge me as a nosey parker, just ignore my curiosity and push the Back button!!!
