NATO Name[edit]

The NATO names are still in common usage and frequently are the only name people know for a piece of equipment. (I bet that a only tiny fraction of people who have heard of a 'scud' or a 'cub' would know to look under SS-1 or AN-12.) Forcing people to click on every unnamed aircraft, or redirecting them to a separate NATO list, to find what they are looking for, makes the process less user-friendly.-Xlation 22:59, 10 August 2005 (UTC)

If you feel it's necessary, then for the love of god don't abuse the wikilinks. Linking NATO the first time is plenty; you could probably get away without even including the NATO in parentheses for the remainder of the reporting names. This is what I'm doing now. -eric 03:08, 12 August 2005 (UTC)

listing cargo aircraft in this article[edit]

Shouldn't we work on expanding the article itself rather than creating a list? The "notable cargo aircraft" list was a good idea, but what's here now should probably go in a separate list of cargo aircraft. -eric 17:43, 24 August 2005 (UTC)


Merging[edit]

I feel that this article and Freight aircraft should be merged. Both could be significantly improved but refer to the same subject. --Colin H 15:17, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

I knew there was an article on the topic already. Some redirects seemed to vanish a month or two back, and I couldn't remember what it was. ericg 15:31, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Freighters, cargo and transport aircraft refer to different things. Transport is the most generic name, referring to practically any sort of aircraft not otherwise intended to kill people. Freighters, as the article states, are conversions of passenger aircraft. Cargo aircraft are generally those planes built specifically to carry large and bulky loads. This article is thus inaccurate, as an airmail aircraft could be considered a transport, but not a cargo. Of course these definitions are subject to interpretation.

Wiki project class change[edit]

Class is changed to Start as the artilce has failed the B-class checklist as it has no referencing or citations. Other ideas for expansion is a section of 'Cargo aircraft on display' at museums and gate guards. Good suggestions above... lets work on this article. LanceBarber 18:21, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Picture needed of the interior[edit]

What does a cargo plane's interior look like? If somebody could shoot a picture and post it here, the main article could be improved immensely. 216.99.198.176 (talk) 04:38, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

First cargo plane[edit]

The first cargo plane may be the Messerschmitt Me 323 and not the Arado 232. I by myself cannot evaluate the situation. Someone has to look for this. -- Rakell (talk) 08:01, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Table[edit]

That table is a real mess, with all the home-made DIY unit conversions, and bad sorting (much of it caused by the home-made DIy unit conversions). The table needs major work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 139.68.134.1 (talk) 15:58, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Cargo container link is wrong[edit]

Cargo container link goes the the Intermodal Container page. That does not reference any aircraft cargo containers. Link should be removed or updated to a more relevant page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.192.45.222 (talk) 19:28, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

correct page would be "Unit Load Device" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.192.45.222 (talk) 19:35, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
