    It’s a derivative of the French word hanghart which means enclosure near a house. Other definitions include enclosure or out building.

    Lotsa aviation terms come from the French language. Aileron, empennage, fuselage, etc. Also, your passengers will be MUCH more impressed if you say, "merde" after a botched landing.....

    I taxied my 1946 BC12D thru a ditch once, it stood on its nose just fine. And stayed there. We had to pull it down.
