Glad to be of help Sara, there were many famous named RAF aircraft, Phantom of the Ruhr, Mickey the Moocher, to name but 2. At the moment the RAF museum at Cosford have an exhibition of aircraft nose art, give their website a check to see if there's any more.

Regards

WOW! What a fab pic! My grandad was in 90 squadron and was there when this pic would have been taken. I was told that us Brits did'nt name our planes and that only the Yanks did! But my grandad always said that they had named their Stirling the Memphis Belle! So this has just comformed to me what my grandad had always told us. Thanks
