    It's a lot easier just saying 'aircraft'. We sold the US all our Harriers - stupid decision by the MoD - so the USN and USM carriers are all Harrier Carriers. Another British invention gone 'stateside'.

    French is labelled as a 'logical' language. The French were on both sides, Vichy with the Axis, Free French with the Allies.

    Anyway, with grammar as convoluted as French and German, I'd say English is a more logical language, with easier grammar

    'Flying machines' is a bit archaic, isn't it? Aircraft covers planes, helicopters/choppers, drones and spaceships - that we can also call 'spacecraft'. 'Craft', as applied to vessels was also the option taken early on for the flying variety.
