Did You Know
A fact from this article appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the "Did you know?" column on March 29, 2011.
The text of the entry was: Did you know ... that during the Second World War, the airfield at Saint-Inglevert, Pas-de-Calais, France, was used by the Armée de l'Air, the Royal Air Force, and the Luftwaffe?

Consistency of measurements[edit]

I've reverted the change of display of altitudes from ft/m to m/ft. Whilst MOS says that there should be consistency in the use of one form over the other, I believe that an occasional exception can be made here.

Being a French subject, the article naturally uses metric first, converted to imperial. I have no problem with that, but (and it's a big but) in most international aviation worldwide , altitudes are expressed in feet. This is the case for aircraft flying in France, so it is natural that theses measurements are expressed in imperial units, and converted to metric. Mjroots (talk) 05:06, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

OK, fair enough. I thought it was a case of having a source in imperial, but then being a French article, the units are flipped so metric is first. –Fredddie 15:15, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
