About the actual name of the article
Working (on it.wiki) on planes built in the same years, I suggest the actual name for Boeing YB-9 is not correct.
As correctly explained in the article, from this page it's possible to understand the Y1 meaning; so referring to YB-9 mean to talk about a single airframe as shown here. Now I suggest the article has to be named Y1B-9 (as the project never saw action in USAAC apart test flight, so it never became B-9).
- I'm uncertain about this - the 'Y1B' prefix was a bureaucratic construct (the addition of the '1' meant nothing about the aircraft itself, just where the money to buy it came from) that was briefly used. What is the WP:COMMONNAME here? - The Bushranger One ping only 18:08, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
- We would normally name the article B-9 but in the few instances when only Y or X designations were used then we use that. If all the aircraft were Y1B-9s it may be worth considering but at least one was a YB-9 so YB-9 is the common designation. It was common after the testing phase of these aircraft that the "Y1" would be dropped and they would be known as YB-9s. As the Y1 was only used in the 1930s most readers would probably not expect it as the article title. MilborneOne (talk) 18:50, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
- I was sure it's really difficult for me to be sharp in my first edits here. As linked above there was one single airframe named YB-9 as there was only one named Y1B-9. Then five more named Y1B-9A. But, anyway, as we have to point out the name "most readers would probably expect" that doesn't matter. Maybe it will be better to re-name Y1B-7 and Y1B-20, once again only used in 1930's. --Leo Pasini (talk) 20:35, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
