EtymologyEdit

From French aéroplane, first element being from Ancient Greek ἀήρ (aḗr, air). Second element uncertain: either from French plane (to glide, hover), or French plan (plane surface), both from plānus (level, flat); or from Ancient Greek πλάνος (plános, wandering), thus equivalent to ἀερόπλανος (aeróplanos, wandering in air).[1]
