Text dump to McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II[edit]

Please take a look at the large amount of text added to McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II about the "First Supersonic Gun Kill" (from User:Zkhan khan/sandbox). I had removed most of the text and left a summary in the Operational history section, but the text was readded this morning. I think the text is overly detailed and should be summarized. Thanks for any help. -Fnlayson (talk) 16:43, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Also, check my edits and others at Northrop F-5, thanks. -Fnlayson (talk) 16:56, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
I've commented on the Phantom's talk page. The changes are undue for the article, while the other recent major changes (the modifications to Iranian F-4s) are sourced to a forum. Not good for a Featured Article! Nigel Ish (talk) 18:53, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
The text dump was from a declined article for creation draft (experienced editors encouraged adding it to the F-4 article!), there were no wikilinks at all, questionable sources and written in a sensational tone ('spouting bullets' etc). I've removed it. Could not restore to a version before the Iranian detail additions because of an intermediate edit. It's easy to forget that it is a Featured Article and all too easy to ignore low quality additions, I will try to watch it better in future.

Airbus Helicopters redesignations[edit]

Airbus Helicopters has announced that they are redesignating most of their helicopter lineup, as detailed here. We probably need to decide which, if any, of the exiw articles we are going to rename, and move-protect those we are not going to move immediately, as over-eager users will probably be making moves soon. Thanks. - ~~ ~

I guess this was inevitable, but personally I wish they would stop changing the designations with each corp re-org. - Ahunt (talk) 18:18, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
  • The H160 looks to be the first new H model. So that one for sure. The others might be covered by listing alternate names/designations. -Fnlayson (talk) 18:30, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
It might be worth creating redirects from the new names back to the old names as a starting point. MilborneOne (talk) 18:42, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Good point. Also, we probably need to go ahead and create an article on the new Airbus Helicopters H160, as there should be enough reliable sources out there to meet WP:GNG. - BilCat (talk) 18:57, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Also, Template:Eurocopter aircraft should probably be moved to Template:Airbus Helicopters aircraft now, but an admin will need to make the move. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 19:06, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

One editor has been trying for some time to add a large WP:PEACOCK list of operational uses to this article, which is about a company, not an aircraft type. The refs he keeps adding do not mention the company or its products and could be about any drone and so after some talk page text I have removed them, twice now. Some additional input on the talk page would be useful. - Ahunt (talk) 20:51, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
