    I have been really enjoying the coverage live from Heathrow this week but cringe each time your presenters call the aircraft a "plane". They are all equally guilty and if they reviewed all their interviews they would be horrified to see how unprofessional it sounds. All the interviewees, whether BA or Heathrow professionals, refer to the aircraft as "aircraft" and yet Kate Hamble and the rest of your team persist in using the word "plane", which, by definition is a flat surface.
    It's the final programme tonight so I've no doubt Im going to continue to cringe but maybe next time??? Otherwise fab programme.

    Welcome to the board Gordon Smith that very point has been raised and debunked here

    www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb...

    That link is to the main thread discussing the programme and I'm sure that you will get a more lively debate there than in this duplicate.
