I have heard of, maybe, half a dozen more but the rest of the names don't mean anything to me. I guess either I haven't watched enough American war films or British news doesn't use the names of the planes as much as American news programmes must.
Another example is the B-52 Stratofortress (a relative told me that they called them BUFFs, ie Big Ugly Fat F***ers) and that it was a fairly common nickname for them.
It's a truly heroic aircraft though; it sacrifices its own life to rid the world of Marines. :)
