RAF 100 flypast

I am rather looking forward to this on Tuesday.
One matter of interest - the callsigns of the various sub-formations. Some have a basis in reality, but others betray a fevered brow somewhere in the RAF, e.g.:
Zorro for the C-130
Grizzly for the Atlas
Monster (Tornado GR4), and
A mammoth feat by servicemen. Let us not forget air traffickers for gluing the assembly together (Heathrow will be shut for 20 mins), and the RAF's engineers for trying to get 100 serviceable airframes into the air at once.
