how about C-TITZ

You're gonna wait a while for that one...currently all Canadian-reg planes start C-Fxx or C-Gxx.

I'd like to see F-UCKU, OY-VEY, or maybe OH-SHT Big grin (if they exist)

One of Wardairs 741's:
CF-FUN. Perfect for such an airline.

If I recall correctly, that was also the reg. of his first (and only) 721, although I could very well be wrong.

ZS-SAU Is My Favourite!

Tue Oct 23, 2001 6:20 pm

My favourite is SAA's B743 ZS-SAU.
Sau means female pig in German; calling somebody 'Sau' is very rude and can cause you quite a problem...

Certainly, most "speaking" regs can be found at VS, with VIRG, VGIN, VOYG, VSEA, VWOW, VTOP, VBIG, VJFK, VLAX, VZZZ (Morning Glory), VCAT, VBEE, VSKY, VXLG, VAIR, VFLY and many others with I don't have in my mind now.

Latest German one is D-ABBA of Air Berlin, having been named "Dancing Queen"...
