A mess[edit]

This template is a ridiculous, cluttered mess. Gene Nygaard 00:18, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

I agree, and I'm removing it anywhere I see it. ericg 06:23, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

The brief description of each plane was helpful when it was part of the X-planes page only. gparker 07:02, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

It is part of the xplane pages only. I have restored the template as there is currently no way to get from xplane to xplane. -Ravedave (help name my baby) 03:26, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

X-Series only[edit]

The article is about planes in the DoD's X-series of aircraft designations (see 1962 United States Tri-Service aircraft designation system), currently X-1 through X-51. There have been other types of experimental aircraft, such as the Chance-Vought/LTV XC-142A. However, the XC-142 is in the Cargo-series; it was intended to be put into eventual production. As all other aircraft in the X-plane list are in the X-series, and the list is fairly long already, I believe it is best to leave the XC-142 off of this list. --BillCJ 03:40, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Agree. // Duccio 09:55, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

List of experimental aircraft lists US experimental aircraft in the other designation series (XA, XB, etc.) The XC-142 is under the XC category. BTW, the list does need more work, particularly XC and XP. --BillCJ 15:46, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Breat at the beginning[edit]

I put a break in at the beginning (and reverted Ericg's edit removing it) because in Netscape, without this break, the text runs over the v.d.e. buttons at the top left. Akradecki 01:14, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

I saw your edit and was curious because I couldn't reproduce the problem... Which versions of Netscape? Because I thought Netscape used the same rendering engine of Firefox, and here under Firefox the templatre looks ok. // Duccio 02:22, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
I've got Netscape 7 on one of my laptops, and I know others (though a minority) use it as well. My thoughts are to make the template as universal as possible. Akradecki 03:02, 5 January 2007 (UTC)


Where is that plane?--HoneymaneHeghlu meH QaQ jajvam 02:40, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

It was never assigned. See http://www.designation-systems.net/usmilav/missing-mds.html, near the bottom of the page. That site is well-researched, usually using data released by the USAF on designations. - BillCJ 02:52, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
