Piloten banter


Recommended Posts

Heard the word "Abshush" (SP?) at one time or another and tried finding it on line for a definition..was about to give thinking I am misremembering the word when during an old film about the Star of Africa the piloten downs an aircraft and yells "Abshush!" the subtitles translated it as "bulls eye" but the google translate doesn't agree with the translation...long story longer...what does this word translate to?
