Mr. Grundy’s English Class

I often see writers use the term “aircrafts” when referring to two or more aircraft. “Aircraft” is the correct term for both singular and plural cases.

Example the first: “The aircraft flew until it ran out of fuel. Then it made a sudden landing.”

Example the second: “The aircraft were parked wingtip to wingtip making them easy targets for strafing by treacherous seagulls.

It’s one of those wonderfully wacky word usages that make English so much fun 🙂

        Besides Miss. Grundy from Archie comics, my High School English teacher was David Grundy. He was the first person to compliment me on my writing and mentor me in school. I never forgot that. I’ve looked for him, but he seems to have moved to a desert island without internet.
