Aircraft and designations[edit]

There is a lot of confusion between this article and the one on the Hybrid Air Vehicles HAV-3 as to which designs were actually built and flown and what they were called. Here is a scenario which may or may not fit the facts:

  • The HAV3 was a sub-scale demonstrator, decommissioned in 2010.
  • The larger HAV306 was built for the US LEMV project, returned to the UK, reassembled and subsequently renamed as the Airlander 10.
  • Hybrid Air Vehicles have not built any other aircraft.

Can anybody confirm whether this scenario is true or, if not, what else might in fact be the case?

The reason I ask is because I am thinking or reorganising these articles to create a new one for the HAV/306/LEMV/Airlander 10, but I need to be sure which name attaches to which craft. (technically this would be a move to take the metadata with it and then rebuild the old page just for the sub-scale prototype) — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 08:43, 21 April 2016 (UTC) [Updated 08:50, 21 April 2016 (UTC)]

Here is my counterargument - I wasn't aware of this discussion until yesterday. Thanks. Philbobagshot (talk) 14:34, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Removal of Airlander 50 Section[edit]

Hello, I've noticed that the section about the A50 has been removed from this page without prior consultation with the editing community, which I would have expected for a significant change like this. I would like to start a discussion about reinstating it as I believe it is useful information for researchers. If you use the reasoning given for the removal then the Lockheed LMH-1 should not be mentioned on the Lockheed Martin P-791 page as it is not yet built either. I am not suggesting that mention of the LMH-1 is taken down as it is relevant and interesting information to those who want to learn about hybrid airships and future plans and developments.

I owe an apology here. It is indeed OK to give it a mention in this article, as I found when I went and refreshed my memory of WP:NAIR just now. Please put it down to a thoughtless mistake. I have now restored the paragraph. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 16:35, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
