This WikiProject aims primarily to suggest how aircraft-related articles can be put in to Wikipedia in an extensible and coherent manner. It also wishes to encourage participation in creating and expanding articles related to Aircraft on Wikipedia. This project also aims to standardize the structure and display of information in these articles. It is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of Wikipedians.
The scope of the project includes (but is not limited to):
Articles on aircraft types form the bulk of the project and see the greatest activity. Newly contributed articles can be found listed at Wikipedia:New articles (Aircraft). Contributions older than the previous month can be found here. See WP:Aircraft/Engines for specifics on aircraft engines.

- Cleanup needed
- Sukhoi Su-27, Su-30, etc. (Su-27 derivatives) - 26 March 2009: Articles need referencing, and some formatting/clean-up in places. Help where you can.

- Antonov An-2 - 27 June 2006: Written far too informally, and focusing too much on trivia.
- B-47 Stratojet - 20 August 2007: Has an enormous amount of information (is this a bad idea?), but much of it is too detailed/of questionable notability. Also lacking in some critical areas. Update: cleaned-up and re-org'ed. Plz review.
