Non-military pilots get nicknames too, even those who fly unpowerd hang gliders. One fine day I was setting up a landing, planned a downwind run, 180, settle in to the sand for a perfect no-step landing. Didn't quite turn out that way. Turned about 5 seconds too late, plastered my hang glider into the side of a trailer, which was also the local hang gliding shop. Ever since then I was known as "pancake", for being the only pilot to splat into the trailer.
