1950 Tete de I'Obiou C-54 Crash[edit]

Hi WS, regarding this article, you only cite one source which is ASN. But the material you added includes many more details, of which ASN covers only a small part. Would you mind telling where you got that material? And why that source is not mentioned in the article? Thanks, Crum375 (talk) 01:26, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Concorde crash[edit]

Hi Matthew. I hope you don't mind my pointing it out but your edit to the Air France Flight 4590 article doesn't seem entirely appropriate, since it's discussing the topic itself, not the article, which is what we're supposed to do on Talk pages. If you can comment on the way we are writing and structuring the article itself then great, but discussing the actual subject itself is a bit of a no-no since it tends to distract from, and interfere with, the process of improving the encyclopaedia. And I guess (but don't know!) that there are lots of other places on the internet where you can discuss this without people getting snarky with you! There's more on this at WP:NOTAFORUM and WP:TPG. Hope this is helpful, happy editing, best wishes DBaK (talk) 17:44, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Template:Infobox aircraft type[edit]

I have reverted you change to the Template:Infobox aircraft type as I could not find any supporting discussion, and apology if you have agreed this somewhere but I could find it. I have raised the issue at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aircraft#Infobox aircraft type your comment would be welcome, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 22:47, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the messsage, I appreciate that you made the change in good faith but with any changes made to the template appearing in loads of aircraft articles we have to take care. If you have any ideas then a suggestion on the template talk page or even better on the WP:AVIATION talk page might get support for any change. MilborneOne (talk) 14:37, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lockheed Constellation production list[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lockheed Constellation production list has been proposed for deletion. The proposed-deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.


I have nominated this for delete. Not because it is a bad idea, but because there is absolutely no relevant content even in the links supplied. If you are in the process of building the article/list please do it in your sandbox before sending to main-space.(forgot to sign)Petebutt (talk) 04:47, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Deleting the Lockheed Constellation production list[edit]

Hi again, I think you have the wrong end of the stick. You haven't done any harm, in fact you have taken part in the process that is Wikipedia. The reason the lists have been deleted is not that they were harmful or you did wrong in writing them, just that they were in the wrong place and there is no need for them on Wikipedia. It is important that you understand that your input is welcome, but may be modified, and possibly deleted, by others to make it fit into the various guidelines, with the same applying to every edit made including mine!! So keepyour pecker up and carry on inputting. If you want someone to check out your articles before posting them in main space you could drop them in my sandbox [User:Petebutt/Sandbox] and leave a note on my talk page.Petebutt (talk) 18:46, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Lockheed L-1249 Super Constellation maximum takeoff weight vs. empty weight[edit]

Hello White Star Line Fan! It has been pointed out on the Science Ref Desk that the Max. takeoff weight of 136,000 lbs is less than the empty weight of 150,999 lbs currently given in the Lockheed L-1249 Super Constellation that you created back in October 2011. Can you please verify these figures? (Even if they were reversed, a 15,000 lb difference doesn't sound like much capacity. I see that Lockheed Constellation gives an Empty weight of 79,700 lb and a maximum takeoff weight of 137,500 lb.) -- ToE 02:58, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited U.S. Route 99, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Burbank and Glendale (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
