I need to know the word for "fuselage" in French please. Thanks in advance!

Gear = un train (les trains)
Tail = la derive
Engine = un reacteur
Wing = une aile


Bonjour Chef!

Hate to tell you this but fuselage is of French origin... so no translation needed.

As far as I know, fuselage is as french as you can get. No other way to translate it.


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Also there is:

Mayday = 'M'aider' which means help in French
Pan = 'Panne' which means something broke down

I'm know there are other similarities but i can't think of them right now.

I believe in French, when something is broken down it is "en panne" not just "panne"

Of course I prefer "pain" which is bread, and you will find no better "pain" in the world except en France!

Phlflyer: Nicolaki is French, so that may be an argument you will lose  Smile However, you are correct in saying that if something is broken you would say "en panne". I was reading an old Paris Match magazine from the Millennium, and the day before New Year's, France had a "tempête" that ravaged the countryside and killed some people. Anyways, in the magazine was an article titled "La France en Panne" so you are correct, however, when used in aviation, the word is "pan" which derives from "panne" as Nicolaki said.
