Does this have notability issues. Military crashes are seldom notable but is there enough to elevate this one out of the List of accidents and incidents involving military aircraft (1960–1974)?Petebutt (talk) 05:20, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

A single-plane crash is usually considered notable if it kills civilian bystanders on the ground. Also, the crash was one of a series of incidents involving US military assets that injured or killed Japanese citizens or damaged Japanese facilities or equipment (see Ehime Maru and USS Greeneville collision) since the end of WWII and have caused consternation and controversy in Japan. There are several other related crashes that need their own articles in en.Wikipedia as soon as I get around to it. Cla68 (talk) 22:56, 5 November 2012 (UTC)


The crash occurred after the designation was changed from F8U to F-8.--Petebutt (talk) 17:13, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
