I've actually been sort of busy on the music front...lost my band project because of my disease, but I seem to be building a rep as a sound tech. Spent the last three weeks gigging...or supporting bands gigging. Got another this Friday.
...that, and on travel for work.

I don't think so, other than the insignia. AFAIK, they were supplied by the Germans from stock on hand.

They are painted in olive green, their sirens make a wining sound, and their drop tanks allow them to rome far and wide. ;-)

I seem to remember the Italians called it the Picchiatelli (Woodpecker, I think)

They used flying creature names for a lot of their bombers, I think my favorite sounding was the SM.81 "Pipistrello" (bat).

By rights, the B-2 should have been named the "Batarang". You want to see a really odd- looking Italian aircraft, look at this one:

single oddest looking flying machine I've ever seen is this one, which amazingly enough actually was built:

I've seen that one before - somewhere. One just doesn't forget that. ;)
That one is completely new to me. I'm not surprised, as many weird things with men riding fell off bridges and other high places. :)
