When a plane works well it is NOT broken!!!!  Working is the opposite of broken.  When a plane doesn't work; than its broken.  This is basic English but it has an added benefit.  If we as a community start using the term properly we can avoid the constant nerfs and instead get buffs to our favorite planes.  For example the f94 is broken.  It was made to hunt bombers but in the game it doesn't have enough altitude.  Since its not doing its job its broken.  Nobody is going to get upset if their favorite plane gets better but they sure as hell will if you take something away especially if its something they paid for.

Same goes for the F5U, it wasn’t broken, it was just working well.  Bring it back to its former glory.

A good pilot who knows his plane, what it can and can't do, and then gets the most out of said plane does  NOT mean it is a broken plane.  It is the crossroads of technology, tactics, and skill coming together in a beautiful deadly ensemble.  A true thing of beauty to behold.

I was thinking about this recently, and I think that the term comes from "game breaking" as in "This (whatever) broke the game"  and it just got shortened to "this (whatever) is broken."

 

Seemed plausible enough while stuck in traffic.

Yep. in the context of games, a plane is broken when it is game breaking... as opposed to a real plane which is broken... seemingly whenever i want to fly somewhere...
