Aiplane* (for Airplane*)

Chicago had a bit of a scare last week when we learned that bombs had been sent via airplane to several area synagogues. Fortunately, our intelligence intercepted them before they were delivered, but it was another wake-up call that the United States is vulnerable. Today's typo, dropping the r, appears on Section E, or lowest probability on the Ballard list, but it does appear 3 times in the OhioLINK catalog. Make sure your craft can take off from the ground by making sure they're in the air, not the ai!
