Infobox template change request as "Operator" row causing confusion
We had a disagreement ( please see details on Talk:Turkish_Airlines_Flight_6491) on "operator" section of the table for Turkish Airlines Flight 6491 as aircraft involved was leased.
I went through SFN database and noticed they have 2 rows for those aircraft accidents involving leased aircraft.
As an example please see record of Turkish Airlines Flight 6491 on SFN > https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20170116-0
Therefore my suggestion is as below.
We need to change "Operator" to "Operating for" & add another row "Leased from" for those accidents involving leased aircraft.
Operating for :Turkish Airlines
Leased from :MyCargo Airlines
- Oppose any change, one operators line in the infobox is OK anything more complex can be explained in the article, also note that ASN is not always a reliable source and we have no reason to copy how others do it. MilborneOne (talk) 15:15, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
- It's not about "copying what others are doing", it's about getting the facts right and stop causing further disagreements. ASN is one of the most reliable source out there as their references clearly listed on references pages including CAA, ICAO & NTSB, full list is here > https://aviation-safety.net/database/ref.php . Also please see the article where BBC transport correspondent says "Another respected organization, the Aviation Safety Network" on http://www.bbc.com/news/business-31133246
Aircraft name error
While editing British Airways Flight 149 for some other reason, the error "Warning: Page using Template:Infobox aircraft occurrence with unknown parameter "Aircraft Name" (this message is shown only in preview)" is shown at the top in the preview. Can someone tell me what is to be corrected?--PremKudvaTalk 11:36, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
|Aircraft Name=is not a valid parameter, according to the template's documentation. You may want to use
|plane1_name=, a documented parameter that should work. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:21, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Sugestion: Add a map
- There is a parameter named 'image' which could be used – unless it's already used for some other image of course. Richard 06:26, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
