American news media love few things more than catchy nicknames.  In the pantheon of catchy nicknames, “Shepherd One,” certainly does the trick.

Awaiting the arrival of Pope Francis on American soil this week news anchors across the country, and around the world, could not stop talking about Shepherd One, the plane that carries the pope.

It’s a bit of a misnomer since the pope doesn’t actually own his own plane. Shepherd One isn’t a private plane. Rather, the name actually refers to whatever commercial plane the pope happens to be traveling on at the time.
