Callsign of the day

Callsign "Fluffy"

1) The guys on my ship thought I was too nice of a guy, so they called me 'Fluffy'. 2) My wingmen had a few beers with the guys on my ship, they swapped stories, and the callsign followed me to the squadron. 3) The true story I tell to the public (and the ladies that still want to talk to me after they learn my callsign) is that I have very, very soft landings!
