|After being completely unable to think of a decent name for
this website I turned for inspiration to two of my other interests -
flying and mythology. The title for this site comes from the nose
art applied to a Rockwell B-1B Lancer, No. 86-0103 of the United
States Air Force. We have been fortunate enough to see this aircraft
on three occasions since the early 90's, twice in static displays at
RAF Mildenhall (the latest being the 2001 show) and in the flying
display at RAF Waddington. 86-0103 was not the first aircraft to
carry this titling, it having been applied to a B-17G of the 96th
Bomb Group during World War 2, the crew taking the name from the
Disney film of the same name. If anyone can supply me with more
details of either of these aircraft, I would be very interested.
