Registration Number "Words"

Thu Jul 10, 2003 8:36 pm

I figured it would be cool to have a little fun with registration numbers.

What registration number of planes are pronouncable?

Air France Concorde G-BOAC is one that you can jsut SAY without reading off each letter. Same with G-BOAG I guess.

Any others out there? Post a picture of the plane too (Man, I have to include something to make it a plugfest, don't I?

You list yourself as a comedian, but to call the G-BOAC Concorde an Air France aircraft is sacrilege!!!

G-BOAC is the third of seven British Airways Concordes, first registered by the greatest airline ever to fly - British Overseas Airways Corporation, or BOAC for short!
