    I've read this forum and every once in a while someone will refer to their plane with a pet name.

    I call my Cherokee Sabrina. My wife calls it Broomhilda.

    Candy. As seen/mentioned in other threads.

    The story is my sister-in-law said the wheel pants look like candy corns. [Hey, today is Halloween!]

    The funny part is that my dogs have been named Dallas, Haley, Amber, Ashley, and now Autumn. All good stripper names.

    I told a friend my plane's name and she said "Good God, you even gave your plane a stripper name?"

    It hadn't occurred to me. But it is what it is.

    "the plane". Yeah, I know, we get crazy down here.

    Disclaimer, I don't actually own the whole airplane. I figure I own the nut that holds the left main gear on. But if it were all mine, it would still be "the plane".

    All "my" planes are named. I had nothing to do with the naming.

    The Waco is named ‘Woody’.

    The Beech 18 is ‘Walter the Twin Beast’

    Just seemed to fit. I never named any of my earlier airplanes.
