How do you pronounce all the commercial aviation things? Boeing- Boing or Bo-ing? Airbus- Air-bus or Air Bus? Airbus aircraft- 320 or Ahe-320 or A320? Boeing aircraft- 777 or triple seven? Boeing aircraft- seven-four-seven or seven forty seven? Boeing aircraft- B747 or just 747? Bomarder- Bomba-dear or Bom-bard-er? McDonnell Douglas/ Douglas- Douglas MD80, McDonnell Douglas, MD or DC? Airliners.net- www.airliners.net or airliners.net? Also do you go straight to hyyp://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/ or do you access this through the homepage? Just trivial interest.

Uh-oh, there's a shortened version of the Triple Seven (the name of it, not the a/c itself). Apparently US aircrew now call it the "Tee Seven". Also I have heard Bombardier pronounced kind of Euro: "Bomb. Bard. Ee. Ay." Very Francais.

In America, we pronounce Boeing as Bow-ing (bow as in elBOW), Airbus is Airbus, one word, A320 as a-three-twenty, 777 as either seven-seventy-seven or triple-seven, 747 as seven-forty-seven, Bombardier as bom-bard-ear, MD-80 as M-D-eighty, DC as D-C, www.airliners.net as just airliners dot net, I go through both the homepage AND I have bookmarked the forum also. I hope this helps.
