His call sign was "Lightning." The assignment of call signs is usually the province
of junior officers, but in Ben's case, his peers had a hand in it and he didn't like it

Pilots flying the YF-22 prototype used the radio call signLightning” during test
flights in 1990, and it was widely thought that the F-22 would have that as its
official nickname. However, it was formally christened “Raptor" by the Air Force in
1997. Lockheed built the 200,000-square-foot L-22 Building south of the runway
in the early 1990s to house those working on the F-22 program; however, these
pictures were snapped in the B-1 assembly building. On the wall are two signs.

All the old rules about changing your call signs so no-one could identify you went
out the window. We kept to the same call sign, "Dylan", day in and day out
because everyone knew that was the Nimrod.' The Nimrods' peacetime
deployment to Oman had been codenamed Magic Roundabout, from the BBC

roundabout and clocktower in Muscat. So it followed that the Nimrods should be
given codenames from the ...

were hired guns for Chiang Kai Shek before America entered the war against

number. When the Air Force became a separate service in 1947, they took the
number with them but not the orphaned nickname. Flying Tiger veterans used it
to start a freight ...
