Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Page moved to 1933 Imperial Airways Dixmude crash. There was some discussion. What was clear is that the old name was not acceptable. However the target page was not clear. I made a decision based on the comments. If there is a better choice, feel free to nominate. Vegaswikian (talk) 00:32, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

The City of Liverpool disaster1933 Imperial Airways Armstrong Whitworth Argosy crash — Name better fits the naming convention for aircrash articles, per WP:AVIMOS the naming convention on aircraft accidents. Mjroots (talk) 18:17, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

I did move the article recently from the original City of Liverpool (aircraft) to 1933 Imperial Airways Argosy crash then as the Times reported as The City of Liverpool disaster I moved it again per common name. The naming convention for accidents at Wikipedia:WikiProject Aviation/Aviation accident task force rather than AVIMOS allows an exception 'if the event has acquired a popular name, that name should be used' hence my use of the contempory name. I would not oppose a move but as I moved it last time I will let others comment. MilborneOne (talk) 18:27, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
I stand corrected, link amended above. Mjroots2 (talk) 21:18, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment if this is the common name, then it should not be moved to the suggested title. However I feel the current title is insufficiently disambiguous, as it could refer to a disaster in the city of Liverpool. 64.229.103.232 (talk) 05:30, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Or to a disaster to a ship named City of Liverpool (should one have happened). The move request means that the existing title will remain as a redirect until such time that it is proved that it needs to be converted into a disambiguation page. Mjroots (talk) 13:56, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Seems like a good reason to move it to your suggestion mjr. MilborneOne (talk) 19:44, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Number of Deaths[edit]

  • Infobox states that there were 12 passengers, 6 crew and 15 fatalities (all). If all perished then shouldn't it be 18 fatalities or am I missing something? 151.170.240.10 (talk) 07:33, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
