Armstrong's Barn[edit]

Hello Banner! I have edited your article on Armstrong's Barn to include information about Peter Robinson who founded it. It was Peter who was awarded a Michelin star in 1977 (appearing in the 1978 Michelin Guide); perhaps you could edit your list of Irish star winners? Andrew K Robinson (talk) 12:37, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I see you can't edit at the moment. I hope you will not mind if I make the edit myself? It consists of removing the name of Paolo Tullio, who bought the restaurant after it had been awarded a star, and inserting the name of Peter Robinson, who was awarded the star before he sold it to Paolo. Andrew K Robinson (talk) 17:54, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

I see you also wrote the wiki entry on Paolo. I hope you don't mind if I edit it to say, instead of "In 1977 Tullio established Armstrong's Barn", "In 1978 Tullio bought Armstrong's Barn". If you want to contact me about it, my email address is given on my own web page Andrew K Robinson (talk) 18:22, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

disinformation inserted by the CIA[edit]

Errr... make that, Actually Useful Stuff.TM Do you have some time to help me out with Jeff Berwick? It is a bit of a mess still, but I've dug up some sources, on article-talk. Thanks, (talk) 22:38, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Actually, I see you just closed the berwick-section manually, as opposed to archiving. The unfriendly person was blocked by Sarah aka User:SlimVirgin if memory serves. I'm not them, I'm friendly.  :-) (talk) 22:40, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Not interested. Just stick to WP:RS. Good luck. The Banner talk 22:42, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Okay, no problemo. Talk to you later. (talk) 23:42, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Swiss Air Force, C-17[edit]

How did a reader now can knew that the C-17 (if he doesnt knew that the C-17 is no more in production and only one C-17 is left for sale) is no more a option for the swiss air force? I think in some way this should be written there, the other aircraft (not only the C-130) are still candidats, knowing the swiss politics it could need years until a decision is made? Any ideas?FFA P-16 (talk) 20:47, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

It is just no relevant information. The plane was in the running in the beginning but it is good enough just to state the final winner. Why and when the others dropped out or lost out is not relevant at all. The Banner talk 21:30, 5 October 2015 (UTC) And please, try to improve your English language skills. And use a spell checker.

But like it is now, the reader can not see, that this type is no more in the run, this is important. and something other, a Zero-G flight for the first time from swiss soil is important if the article is about the airbase who this flight started. Did you knew what a Zero-G flight is? Do you new from how many airports/airbases such zero-g flights took place in Europa? Its just a hand full One in france, one in germany.FFA P-16 (talk) 22:44, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

No, it is totally not important. Just like the flight, absolutely not important. Swiss is not the centre of the universe. The Banner talk 22:59, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

No one says that switzerland is the center of the univers.. but the Article is about the Swiss Air force base.. and so this was the first time in switzerland so , it is important. And no this flights took usualy not place everywehre in Europa.. usualy only from an airport in France, and one in Germany.. thats it-- and the Roskosmos IL--76 in Zuhkovsky. And no you can not rent this aircraft like an usual charter flight. this flight vwas also a topic of a Documentation on the swiss national TV on this day. FFA P-16 (talk) 23:15, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

No, it is totally not important. It is only a type of flight and you hire a commercial company to perform that for you. Absolutely nothing special. The Banner talk 09:23, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

The part you delet this, is about the history of this air Base, so the first Zero-G flight for this Air Base, for the ETH Zürich , for Switzerland (its a swiss air Base) is important. ZeroG flight with start from swiss soil. But if you have a look at Zero-G you will see that such flights took part usualy only in Russia, USA, France, and Germany.

  • 2.1.1 NASA's Reduced Gravity Aircraft
  • 2.1.2 European Space Agency A300 Zero-G
  • 2.1.3 Others

You can see that only a handfull of aircraft exist for this (Fuelsystem has to be modified) an that in Europa usualy this flights are made fromthe 2,3 same Airports. Its not possibel to rent just an aircraft to do this. (and also to get an airspace who you can do this). As we don't agree to this I think other People should have a look at this. Lets see theyer opinion FFA P-16 (talk) 09:47, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

BTW If a National TV Station reports about this, and the two biggest newspaper , it could not be uninportant...

FFA P-16 (talk) 09:57, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Oh, yes, it can still be unimportant. Wikipedia has a wider scale that Switzerland alone. And a local event seldom has an international relevance. It is a commercial company performing those flights, you just hire them... The Banner talk 10:19, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, Wikipedia has a wider scale that Switzerland alone. But this specific Article is about this Airbase , its a swiss air base so it is important because it is a first time event. Ther are at the moment only 2 aircraft who are used for such Zero-g flights in Europa. this airbus who usualy only makes this flights from Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport. and the IL-76 from Roskosmos operating from zhukovsky there is no other Aircrasft in Europa. and no its not possible to rent it just like a charter or private aircraft. Please read Zero-G FFA P-16 (talk) 13:22, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
