As 'OY-AGURK', this has gone completely bananas! Back in 1977 a very popular phrase in Denmark was: "to go bananas". As we do not grow bananas in Denmark we have to say cucumbers (agurk) instead! That is why the nice guy and airborne photographer Thorkild Balslev had added the "RK" to the registraion. The Danish CAA did not like that, so it was removed a few days later. Sadly, Mr Balslev was later killed in this aircraft during take off on a windy runway in Thisted (EKTS/TED) on 11 January 1982.
