Wonderful Workmanship
« on: January 24, 2014, 05:14:04 PM »

Interesting article in the Daily Mail ...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2544733/The-ultimate-PAPER-airplane-Student-builds-Boeing-777-model-complete-engine-using-just-card-glue.html

only thing that spoils it is that they (the Daily Mail) haven't bothered to correct
the spelling in what was probably an American news item originally.

The word is A-E-R-O-P-L-A-N-E,  not airplane! <*<

Richard, to quote Professor Henry Higgins in "My Fair Lady" regarding correct usage of the English language - " In America, they haven't used it for years" :-)

Boeings are American, so may be 'airplane' is correct.
For an Airbus, probably aeroplane (or perhaps whatever the French say).
