Entry: aerodyne (n.)

In context: "...a thick M.F. cup, caught by a sudden gust as it falls, twirling, is caught at some aerodyne's angle and blown spinning all the way of the storefront of one 'Antitoi Entertainment'..."

Definition: now chiefly hist. a heavier-than-air aircraft; an aeroplane.

Also, helpfully from Wikipedia: heavier-than-air aircraft, deriving life from dynamic motion through the air.
