Bessard-Millevoye Moineau[edit]

Hi TSRL, I see your point, but looking into the guidance for the specs template shows that only one engine should be used in the power-plant section. So we both need our bottoms spanking, Fnaar! Fnaar!--Petebutt (talk) 15:19, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Fair cop! I've put the Train 4T in, as that is the only one of the three to have an article; I've also moved the note into the Powerplant section. Cheers,TSRL (talk) 16:24, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Caudron 570[edit]

G'day; go your hardest, as we say in this part of the world. Here is what I found that might be useful to you:

  • [1]
  • [2]
  • [3] May not be a Reliable Source
  • [4] possibly non-RS website but it states its data is sourced from Janes of 1936 and 1937
  • [5] and [6]

I have seen Caudron R.570, Caudron-Renault C.570, Caudron C.570 (which is how it's listed in the Caudron article) and C-570 as well. Good luck! Cheers YSSYguy (talk) 09:25, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the prompt reply and the refs - I'll bash on then. I'd been thinking about getting Hauet book 2 (got book 1) but copies are not cheap. I'd missed the Flight article, which could be useful for those, like me, with weak French - I like to use such contemporary articles where they exist, as they are less likely to have gathered myth and mistakes.

Minimum Control Speed[edit]

Vmc is the minimum speed needed to maintain control with one ( or more) engines out. On the Mosquito it was typically 5-10 kts above take-off speed!!!!!!!!!--Petebutt (talk) 10:06, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for that. Since you posted, I've had a look at VMC and it seems quite messy! Still, I'd guess that in the simpler 1920s "Vitesse minimum" meant what it said and probably would not have been far above the stall speed, if not equal to it. Cheers,TSRL (talk) 19:51, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Breguet aircraft[edit]

Hi, seasons greetings! I was just going through the Breguet navbox and sorting out some articles that were not bolding due to page moves when I noticed that there are two versions of Breguet spelling in use, one with an acute accent and one without. The French articles indicate a plain spelling. I can fix it but thought I'd check with you first, cheers. Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 20:44, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

There is some discrepancy in the family articles as well, Louis Charles Bréguet was moved recently, two relatives mentioned have plain spelling and the French article differs from the English one. All good fun! Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 20:49, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

I've had a quick scamper through the few Breguets I started and the great majority of French sources use the unaccented form (one exception in 10 or so). In a lot of cases I've added a gratuitous é in quoting the article title in the ref. Pardon moi! and well spotted. Cheers,TSRL (talk) 21:34, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Sounds more French with it! I couldn't find any use of the accent in any other language wiki article, including French DAB pages. Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 22:10, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Avec curiosité, I spotted a 1923 French ad with the acute on a capital, where they often drop them. So its not just l'anglais who are confused! Bonne année, and let's hope it's a better one!TSRL (talk) 23:01, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Haacke HFM-2[edit]

You seem to have lots of knowledge of the Haacke HFM-2, where did you get it? - ZLEA (Talk,Contribs) 00:02, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

All the technical stuff is in the Flight article cited, leaving applications and names oustanding. The Museum data identifies the name of the 30 hp version as the HFM-2a but the HFM-2 for the smaller version also described by Flight, but not named, was, as I said in the edit comment, a reasonable guess. I found several of the aps by trawling through the Flight and French online records (Les Ailes is a goldmine); it would be good practice to cite the source of each one but that's often not done. More often than not, these early sources only i/d engines through power but in these cases there was little ambiguity. The Udet info 2 comes from Flight, where it's called the Udet two-seater and the other blue links have sources in them. The Rieselers come from the histavion site; it would be good to have some contemporary sources but I've not found the German equivalent of the Biblioteque National archive.

Your edits on Sikorsky S-8[edit]

Hi TSRL, Thanks for the rewording, it sounds better that way. I could not figure out how to get that cite in the proper position and gave up. Thanks again! Samf4u (talk) 17:07, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

You're welcome! There is a |param note= for almost every param in that template; very useful; for text additions.TSRL (talk) 19:41, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Typo help in Latécoère 225[edit]

The "word" warer appears in the article and seems to apply to a type of rudder. Is this at typo of water or something else? --LilHelpa (talk) 23:39, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Water rudder is what I meant, as User:Ahunt has noted and corrected. Thanks, both.TSRL (talk) 08:30, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
