P-47D “Goona”, 42-22784, coded E9:C


I hope you'll forgive me if this isn't an appropriate question for this site but here goes:-

I'm trying to research the origins of my surname, and a Yahoo search on the name Goona lead me here. Does anyone have any information on why Maj. Roy B. Caviness' plane is called Goona? Is it named after a specific person, area or incident? Any information that you can provide would be very welcome.

Thank you.
