Article class reassessment[edit]

I have reassessed this article per request over at WP:AVIATION. I have assessed this a C-class article. While it passes referencing, structure, grammar, and supporting material requirements for B-class, I feel that it does not cover the topic extensively enough for a B-class article. Further expansion would involve information about the investigation, search/rescue/recovery, and other aftermath (lawsuits and so on). --Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 22:02, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I agree with that. Further research means resorting to local newspapers via the library. Anyone in West Kent like to assist? Mjroots (talk) 22:08, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Have you tried the Google news archives? --Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 22:46, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Let me know if you need the NYT article; I have a subscription. --Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 22:54, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
