Permanently protecting this page[edit]

The info on this page is pretty unchanging. Sure, there might be an addition or deletion based on new research, and it is possible that a jet pilot might get his name included in the list of aces, but those things are fairly unlikely in the foreseeable future. What do folks think about having this page on a sort of permanent protected status. It seems to get vandalized pretty regularly by anonymous users who appear to be adding their own names or someone that a quick search reveals should not be on this list, and protecting this page would prevent that kind of vandalism. The only people who really need to edit this page are the sort who will have a WP account. Geeman 10:14, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

The page does NOT meet Wikipedia criteria for protection. — ERcheck (talk) 18:02, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps we can think outside the box just a bit here and extend the policy into protecting pages that are "static" for all intents and purposes. Geeman (talk) 22:16, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
There are minor changes that people with a personal interest might make - in my case, my uncle, was listed as "Porky" Edward Cragg, when the proper listing of his name (and associated biographical article) should be Edward "Porky" Cragg. I also noticed that the "C" section was woefully out of alphabetical order, which I restored

Ace Status Validation[edit]

I have just reversed an entry for a Robert Jennings as the Air Force Historical Agency has no record of his credits.
