  • According to the toolbox, it's possible there's a better link for "Canopy believed cause of Sabre pilot deaths (info) []".
    • Interesting, the automated dab checker didn't send me a reminder this time... ;-)
  • "{"The Young Shall Have Wings")": ("The Young Shall Have Wings")
    • Tks -- surprised it didn't draw attention to itself by clobbering the infobox, temperamental things they are...!
  • "During the war it had graduated 1,247 pilots, losing 45 students in fatal accidents.": This question is actually about a current FAC and not this article ... have you heard anyone claim before that "losing" is in the wrong tense in BritEng?
    • Don't know about BritEng per se but it's common wordage when discussing casualties, certainly in the Commonwealth-focussed sources I use.
  • Two images are missing.
    • Missing... what...? :-)
      • The links to the images were broken ... they're fine now. - Dank (push to talk)
  • "Sabre Trials Flight. The flight was responsible": I'd prefer the reader get some kind of clue here that this is not the usual meaning of "flight"
  • "in the shape of": I'd prefer "in the form of"
    • Well I'd hope to avoid the "formation ... form" repetition...
  • "frontline", "front-line" (as an adjective): consistency. FWIW, AmEng is "frontline".
    • Tks, thought I had 'em all -- I think we generally say "front line" for the compound noun, in which case "front-line" would be the expected adjectival usage. Tks for reviewing! Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 01:42, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

  7. Overall:
