I just heard the name, Sven, I have always liked it. The second part of my name came from one day watching Dogfights on the History Channel. It was a whole marathon of Dogfights inside of the Vietnam era. So I named myself the mainstay fighter of the US. The F-4 Phantom

Lets see.... I've been using Justen Not Relevent since I was about 12, and I misspelled it... because I was 12, and thats what 12 year olds do. The reason I've kept it misspelled is because of the E in my name, Justen... I dunno, I just thought it kinda fit.

Anyways, my first name is Justen, and I didn't want to give away my last name.

I had gotten interested in flying simulation aircraft, but I figured that I probably had more navigation
skills than piloting skills. plus, I spent time in the US Navy on-board a vessel in our Gator Fleet, SSoo...
It just happened to work together.

I was interested in the team 'Plunderbird' from Robot Wars. (robotic combat show) When it was on TV in the UK. Got all the 'team gear' they used to wear, including a team shirt! So it was an obvious choice.

(forum) Hammer -- from the J.A.G TV series, it was the call sign of the main character http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112022/

(servers) Thor -- has a nice ring and I love the mythology behind it :); the tag -=RoAF=- is the short name of the Air Force from my country: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanian_Air_Force

I have different usernames because I was often confused with Thor12 so I've switched to Hammer on the forum...

I used to visit YSP a lot for the addons, and eventually I started lurking around. Eventually I joined and went with Omnipresent because I was hooked and was always on. People just called me Omni so when I made the switch to HQ I just went with it. Now, with 3 jobs and 2 kids, I barely have enough time to check the forums so the name really doesn't suit me anymore... Just too confusing to switch it up now so Omni it is.

I played Ace Combat a lot when I was younger, I still play it, but not as much. I joined a group called Aquila Wing. The squadron I joined was one that flies American planes, and it was called Cobalt Squadron. For a while I referred to myself as Viper 9, so then I just adjusted my name to Cobalt 9, then added the 0 to make it more formal. Also, I would've been Raven, but I noticed someone with the name and went with Cobalt 09. Yeah, long overexplained story.

I believe mine is pretty obvious. You don't deserve to be on the internet if you don't know the reference. Also, I was known as aragorn15 previously. IRL my call sign in airsoft wars and other games and such used to be Camo which was inspired the the old USAF field jacket I always wore. I also considered it to be an abbreviation of Cameron, my first name. Now I just use Badger or Hotel Bravo (HB=Honey Badger). In LARP (mainly alone in my house or my head...*shakes head*), I use names inspired by the Inheritance Cycle (best book series EVAR) like Valinor (not the LOTR location), Duathgarm (one of my own inventions. It's the Ancient Language for "Death-wolf" :twisted: ), Edoc'sil, etc. BTW, Fantasy was inspired by the Middle Ages...they can TOO be in the same sentence. Lots of people in the Middle Ages believed in some things Fantasy is known for now like trolls and dragons...sheesh.

Well, Shadow R1 is a Modified Beech King Air 200 that the RAF use. I live near the airbase that operates it so ya. At some point I'm going to change my YSFHQ name to Nath, since that's my real name. :)

Mine should be pretty obvious by now but, I'm a commercial aviation enthusiast (some might beg to differ and call me a commercial aviation freak) and I'm a big fan of turbofan-powered aircraft. And that's what I decided to use.
