Bush airplaneBush airlines — Bush airlines allows to increase article scope as it allows the article to tell how the airlines function; namely like public transport; people board as a bus and they leave when full; much unlike regular airlines. —Preceding unsigned comment added by KVDP (talkcontribs) 11:01, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose, the article clearly describes planes with certain properties (big tyres, high wings &c.), not airlines.--ospalh (talk) 12:34, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose, same reasons, there isn't a single mention of a company in the article Paul Weaver (talk) 20:26, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose Same as above, there's no reasoning given by the nominator, the reasoning recently edited in by the nominator makes no sense, and WP:UCN easily applies.

  • Oppose for the same reasons above, Skier Dude (talk) 04:00, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose request makes no sense, and doesn't match contents of article. (talk) 06:30, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose -- this article is clearly about airplane types, not about their mode of operation. If someone wants to tell how bush airlines operate, he/she is welcome to add a section on "Bush flying" or something like that to this article. (talk) 07:49, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

yo why —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:01, 6 March 2010 (UTC)


DC-3 doesn't comply with any of the criteria stated in the first paragraph, starting from the fact that it's not a general aviation plane and ending with it requiring a BUILT airstrip. I think it should be removed from the list. Nomad (talk) 14:42, 10 April 2012 (UTC) The DC-3 (along with some others that do not comply exactly with the criteria) are in fact used as bush planes - the criteria laid out is not exclusive - merely a listing of common features. Some bushplanes are or have been biplanes, or low wing monoplanes, and some have nosewheel undercarriage. This doesn't mean they were not used as bushplanes, merely that they are exceptions.NiD.29 (talk) 05:54, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

The DC3 can match all the items listed in the "Common traits" section and Buffalo Airways, to name just one airline, have been using it for years for commercial non-sked flights, one of the criteria for general aviation. CambridgeBayWeather (talk) 11:54, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
That they do - along with C-54s and Curtiss Commandos (and from frozen lakes to boot).NiD.29 (talk) 15:05, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Bush airplane vs. Bushplane[edit]

Wondering if this should be renamed? what does everyone think? Normal use seems to be bushplane - I don't recall anyone using the full form anywhere.NiD.29 (talk) 19:48, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

I had been thinking about this as well. I thought of bush plane rather than bush airplane but either bushplane or bush plane is better than the current title. I know it's only a rough guide but I checked Google and got "Bush airplane", "Bush plane" and "Bushplane". CambridgeBayWeather (talk) 03:22, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
It was moved from bush plane. CambridgeBayWeather (talk) 03:25, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
This article using bush airplane will result in lots of hits under that name from all the sites that rip off wikipedia. not sure whether a space is required or not - could go either way. Just because someone moved it before doesn't mean it was right - I have seen quite a few pages that had been renamed from what they should have been to the current title, often from ignorance of the subject combined with an excessive zeal to make the name match some arbitrary standard that shouldn't have been applied in that case. In any case no discussion occured on this page - they just upped and moved it. Since no-one has commented against the move back I'll go ahead and do it.NiD.29 (talk) 10:15, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

bushplane (one word) was taken with a redirect with a history (someone fixed a double redirect at the wrong end) so it is now bush plane - which did get marginally more hits in google.NiD.29 (talk) 10:26, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

military aviation[edit]

Military aviation is not bush flying, which as per most definitions covers non-scheduled general aviation only. A significant portion of army air operations takes place from unimproved airstrips (think L-4 operations, forward air strips, etc), but that is not considered "bush flying" regardless of location. I have yet to see any evidence that the Fi 156 was ever used commercially or by a general aviation operator. (The later M.S. Criquets maybe, but even that is doubtful)NiD.29 (talk) 17:56, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
