Talk:Lockheed TriStar (RAF)
|WikiProject Aviation / Aircraft||(Rated C-class)|
With all the new and existing tanker articles avaliable (A333 MRTT, KC-45, A310 MRTT, CC-150, KC-767, KC-10/KDC-10), I felt it was time to create this one, rather than have redircts to the L-1011 page. Being late at night, it took me over 3 hours to do what I thought would take 30 minutes!
Thanks to everyone who helped improve the article while I slept after spending half the night creating it! A special thanks to Nimbus (who has actually flown to the Falklands on the pic he added from the Geman Wiki) and Adrian (pics forthcoming) for hepling to find/add new pics, at my request.
As to the title, Lockheed TriStar redirects to Lockheed L-1011, which I beleive is as it should be. That left Lockheed TriStar (RAF) as the only reasonalbly short title available. I'm certainly open to alternate titles. - BillCJ (talk) 04:51, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
- Technically, the RAF refer to the aircraft as the Tristar, not the TriStar. I don't know whether this warrents renaming the article.Nigel Ish (talk) 16:08, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
- Apparantly both styles are used interchangeably, per this page. I did check that page and two printed sources (all 3 use "TriStar") before choosing that style when I created the article. I do understand that web pages are not necessarily "official". If you have a definitive source that "Tristar" is the official style, we can change the article's title to match. - BillCJ (talk) 16:29, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
- Well everybody else, including Lockheed refers to the aircraft as the TriStar - apparently according the Air International article I referenced, it's just the RAF who uses Tristar (although the RAF website  and  can't seem to agree what to call it.Nigel Ish (talk) 16:30, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
