Conjecture[edit]

Experts speculate that the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is likely to be the last U.S. manned fighter.. This needs to have some clarification. Knowing a lot of USAF pilots, and having asked them this very question, I would disagree with this statement, based upon their input. Can you provide some clarification here? It's not really like an NPOV issue, but a matter of clarifying conjecture. Avriette 01:44, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

how about... we remove the sentence because encyclopedias do not publish speculation. (i very well may have authored it too.) ✈ James C. 23:31, 2005 May 2 (UTC)
just checked the first version of the article. it was me. ✈ James C. 23:34, 2005 May 2 (UTC)

Different Variants[edit]

Like what was briefly discussed in the Northrop Grumman X-47 article, the different variants of this aircraft, the "A" and the "C", are radically different. Right now it is probably fine to keep them in together in one article, but as more information becomes available on the "C", it should probably be split off into its own article. -SidewinderX (talk) 12:32, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Related aircraft[edit]

Right now the McDonnell Douglas X-36 and the Boeing Bird of Prey are listed as related aircraft. As far as I know, those aircraft aren't directly related (and I don't see anything cited in the article to contradict that). I'm sure things learned from those programs were applied to the X-45, in the same way that any company incorparates earlier work into later work, but I don't think they are related in the way that we usually mean for that field. I just wanted to leave a note here as explaination as I remove them. -SidewinderX (talk) 20:06, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/x-45-ucav/
    Triggered by \bairforce-technology\.com\b on the local blacklist
  • http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/x-45-ucav/specs.html

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:44, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
