Call sign possibly comes from what the aircraft is doing as "ASPIRIN" was the code name used in WW2 for the equipment to upset the Luftwaffe's  Knickebein radio signals to "bend the beams"

Thanks for that.  I did wonder whether there was something more significant about the FlightID.  Two of their aircraft have used ASPIRIN, and another used MONICA, which is also listed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_World_War_II_electronic_warfare_equipment

I love this hobby!!
