  • The cargo hold was 30 feet (9.1 m) long and 12 feet (3.7 m) wide,[3] and featured an innovative configuration, the rear fuselage being upswept with a integrated loading ramp, allowing vehicles to be driven directly on and off of the aircraft.[4] This is a run-on or something, it really doesn't read well.

  • Data from Adcock - This should be changed to a complete sentence, perhaps The following data can be verified by Adcock. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
That's actually standard format for {{Aircraft specs}}. I've changed it to list the title of the book instead though.
  • {The largest glider ever built in the United States, it did not see… Insert "Being" at the beginning of the sentence. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I've reshuffled that sentence in an alternative matter, hope it reads better now.
  • You need to refer to the Air Force as USAAF throughout the article instead of USAF, as it was still the army air forces. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Actually, the XG-20 didn't fly until 1950, two years after the USAF was established as an independent service from the former USAAF. I have clarified the wording in several places though
  • hydraulic power to the landing gear and flaps,[3] The nose The comma should be a period. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
  • The Primary user should be the United States Army Air Forces, not United States Air Force. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
As noted above, the USAAF never used the type at all - it was the USAF that conducted all the flight testing.
  • However Chase had designed the aircraft to allow for the easy… Insert comma after However. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
  • In the references, occasionally you refer to the page number as stuff like page 1, when it should be p. 1
  • That's all I see, I'll put the article on hold for a while. If the issues are addressed, I will pass the article. CrowzRSA 15:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the review! :) I've worked on everything (except the USAAF/USAF thing, as explained), hope it's improved. :) - The Bushranger One ping only 18:07, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
