  It seems our friends down under are having fun with their reggies.

On our airfield near London (the proper, original London that is) we have
G-STUA and G-STUB which should be self-explanatory.  I used to fly a G-BSIS
which again is obvious but is no longer with us.  Still on the same field we
have G-SPIN and G-LOOP (an S2A and S1D).  We have just lost, on being sold,
another S1S called G-WAZZ (which means something different over here from
what I think it means in the USA).

Elsewhere in the UK is an S1S called G-FLIK, a G-PITS and a G-PITZ and a very
shiny silver S1S called G-LITZ.

So we have fun with reggies here too, and discussions can get interesting to
see what can be got past the CAA watchdogs.  When Louisa Knapp was planning
to register her first Extra 300, the favourite for a shrt while was G-SPOT...
but it never came to be.
