A pilot had to have 5 victories over the enemy to be called " Un As". Of course we also use the word "as " in card games, if you are keen on playing " la belote" or " le bridge" you'll know that you have:
L' as de pique, l'as de cœur, l'as de carreau et l'as de trèfle.
If you missed the talk on Les aviateurs et les aviatrices, why not go to the website of : Le musée de l'air et de l'espace, you'll see wonderful photos or to the Bristol museum where there is an exhibition on the history of aviation until the end of January 2011.
If you want to share your interest either on card games or planes, why not write a comment?
