It's christmas and the last weeks, I remembered what my father (he died in 1996) told me about his experiences in the war. He was a teenager in southern germany back then and the air war was his contact with the enemy most of the time. He told me, that he doesn't feared the Liberators, which he described as a flying bus, but he was especially afraid of something he called "Gabelschwänzle" and i could never forget this strange name. Today I know, that he talked about the P-38 Lightning, the forktail-devil, and yesterday i read, that it was known as "two planes, one pilot" in Japan. The similar shaped german FW-189 was called "Rama", "Rahmen" or frame by the russians. I'm sure, you guys from overseas will know a lot of nicknames, especially for german or japanese weapons or equipment, i never heard of. And, not to forget, merry christmas to everyone!
