Do you think the Pocket Oxford Dictionary should be corrected :

Airbus n. propr. short-haul passenger aircraft

from POD, 1994

Right, I've got a relative working at OUP. I'll get her on it.

Any contributions related to what it should read?

From a music dictionary,

"Benjamin Britten - see under Peter Piers",

*thumb, thumb, thumb, then,*
