I've seen recently some references to Chinooks as being 'wokkas', but I seem to remember from my days in the Army (in the '70's and '80's, admittedly!), that a Huey UH-1 was a wokka, and a Chinook was a 'thwakka'.

Obviously we need clarification of this important naming convention!

When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.
