Callsign of the day

Callsign "Skippy"

I was in the F-16 sim, and I came in for my landing. Well, apparently I was a little rough as I bounced a bit and went into the dirt, and the first words out of Tractor's mouth were, "Come on, Skippy!" He then gave me the option for that or SUV, and Skippy stuck.
