Trislander[edit]

Yes, that was an error on my part. However, I am slightly confused as to operational examples still with Aurigny, as the official website states three. I am assuming there are now two in the service of Aurigny? Regards Irondome (talk) 21:21, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
The article in Aeroplane says that one G-BEVT was still in service at the end of March. G-RLON is the one that has been given to Solent Sky and the third, G-BDTO was retired in December 2016 and may going to the Guernsey Airport fire training unit.Nigel Ish (talk) 21:32, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
That's all three accounted for then. Thanks for the background info Nigel. Irondome (talk) 21:34, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Your reversion of my edit to Short Belfast[edit]

Greetings and felicitations. I noticed that you reverted my edit to Short Belfast, with the comment "cite the title properly". Per MOS:CT:

For title case, the words that are not capitalized (unless they are the first or last word of the title) are:

Since the mentioned exception does not apply to the title in question, would you please be so kind as to do me the courtesy of undoing your reversion? —DocWatson42 (talk) 09:03, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Doing so would be to falsify the title of the reference. I will not do it. As clearly verifiability is not important to you or to MOS, I will unwatch the article so I am not liable for such disruptive changes.Nigel Ish (talk) 17:57, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Actually, per the publisher's official Web page for the current edition and the 2009–10 edition's cover, the title is capitalized Jane's All the World’s Aircraft (emphasis added)—see here and here, respectively.—DocWatson42 (talk) 00:43, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
If you want further proof, I can provide the citations from various style guides, or even take photos of the book in question—one of my local college libraries has just about every edition. And, yes, I do care about verifiability. —DocWatson42 (talk) 00:55, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I have unwatched the article so you can do what you want to it - I will not edit it again as you have made it quite clear that I am not welcome there. Please do not edit this talk page again.Nigel Ish (talk) 08:42, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

The Fokker Scourge article[edit]

I am having a few problems with an enthusiastic but at times very dogmatic editorial colleague on the Fokker Scourge article. In fact, things have reached a pass where some second opinions might be useful. The specific question he is hammering at the moment is that we shouldn't ever say "No. 1 Squadron RAF" (in spite of that being the usual way of putting it) but "1 Squadron" (on the grounds that the "No." is redundant). I wouldn't object to an occasional omission of the "No.", if only for elegant variation, but he has been going right through the article wiping every instance and claiming that "Wikipedia is not a source" (which is true enough, but nothing to do with the case). The gentleman concerned has been making dozens of other (mostly very pettifogging) changes to the article - a few have been genuine improvements, and most at least acceptable alternatives but some of have made clear text obscure, even meaningless. I have let everything he has done that is at all acceptable stand, but the really bad ones I've had to change - usually with a new version rather than a provocative revert.

I was wondering, if you have a moment, if you'd like to have a little look at the Fokker Scourge talk page (go straight to the bottom if you like) and tell me, either here, on my talk page, or even on the talk page of the article if you want to actually buy into the discussion, if I'm being totally unreasonable and should just give up. This is (for a WWI aviation article) quite a high traffic one - and I'd like to leave it in reasonable shape. At least readable, and plain in meaning (two things I value far above brevity for its own sake). --Soundofmusicals (talk) 01:07, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
