Interesting post. For those curious about such things, there is also a book entitled "Dictionary of RAF Slang" by Eric Partridge. I came across it after reading your post and listening to the BBC segment, both of which made me curious about RAF and USAF slang differences.

Thanks, John. I didn't know about that book, even though I make frequent reference to Eric Partridge's other books on slang. He has a remarkably broad knowledge.
