GA review[edit]

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    "promising to solve the transportation problem of Jews during the Arab revolt of 1936-39." -- I'm presuming that the transportation problems involved a ground war of some sort, but that needs to be explicit. "This was fine for a time, however soon land in Tel Aviv became scarce," -- the 'This was fine for a time, however soon' part of the sentence is extraneous. Ben Gurion airport is linked at least 3 times in the article. "1993-6" is awkward; do "1993–1996" instead. Replace dashes with en-dashes per MOS for east–west, north–south.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    "In the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the airport served as a base to the Israeli Air Force. It was a central base, home to 21 aircraft at the time. The first military flight was made in December, 1947, when Pinchas Ben Porat flew an RWD-13 to Beit Eshel to rescue an injured soldier." -- not cited. I would also like more information about the "Hebrew University" reference (author and year, among them). Single-sourced paragraphs only need to cite the source once, not per sentence (unless the content is controversial). Airports Worldwide may not be a reliable source for FA purposes.
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:

Looks good. Let me know when you have made the changes. Thanks! —Rob (talk) 20:45, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I've made all the changes apart from I couldnt find more info for the Hebrew University source or an alternative yet to Airports Worldwide. Thanks. Flymeoutofhere (talk) 09:43, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes, one might not exist. Alternatively, it may be possible to establish Airports Worldwide as a reliable source, but that is beyond the scope of GA - I just happen to bring it up as I read articles. —Rob (talk) 14:36, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

new international airport in tel aviv is approved!!!!!!supeeeeeeeer!!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:19, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Not factual sentence[edit]

One of the first sentences in the article implied that Golan was in northern Israel, this is not factual or neutral, it must be clear that its not in northern Israel. --Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 11:06, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
