Is the "Angry Bird" nickname derived from the "Angry Birds" smartphone game?

No, if you expand the fourth photo you can see a set of open doors opposite the IPP exhaust.

No, the prior crew chief and the engineer for the plane had short tempers, and would always butt heads. She got the nickname from that.

I just have to say, I love this forum!

Thanks for the hard work (and this goes to all the other pilots, engineers, etc.) and the great pics. Some of us, especially those of us kissing the dirt below, appreciate your work. A lot.

:applause: 'beaupower32' (is your nickname "beaurepaire"?) :twisted: :roll: many thanks for the great sequence pics and video. I was clueless about the 'doors' for the flares. Now I know - that earlier 'SWP' pic had me puzzled - not now. :doh:
