List of airline flights that required gliding[edit]

There is a discussion underway about including non-airline flights in this list article under "see also". Interested editors may comment here. - Ahunt (talk) 11:10, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

mass reclassification of aircraft articles as stubs[edit]

User:Vami IV has taken upon himself to reclassify class B and C articles en mass as stubs based solely on a dearth of references, rather than tagging them for the lack of references - WP:STUB is pretty clear, and makes no mention of references as being a criteria for such a classification, but rather that the page needs substantial expansion. Thoughts? - NiD.29 (talk) 17:29, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Examples include DFW R.II, Fokker D.V and Dornier Do 11. - NiD.29 (talk) 17:34, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

I agree. It should be pretty clear that a Stub is a very short article. Having enough references or not enough does not change that. If the article to long enough not to be a Stub, then it can be a Start, C or B depending meeting the B class checklist requirements. --Finlayson (talk) 17:35, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
I agree. Revert and carry on. - Ahunt (talk) 17:52, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
Agree. Having read WP:Stub etc. Revert (where confirmed as bad assessment). I reverted their stubbing on FW 187 (lost out to Me 110 as German twin-engined Zerstorer) which has a prose size of 1,800 words! Should a rebuke be handed out? GraemeLeggett (talk) 18:05, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
I reverted 4, and all four were reverted, although he did leave a comment on my talk page. Thanks. - NiD.29 (talk) 19:00, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Gliding flight move[edit]

A user has proposed that Gliding flight be moved to Gliding. The current topic at Gliding, which is about the sport of gliding, would be moved somewhere else. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 05:34, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Category:Military equipment of the Vietnam War[edit]

Category:Military equipment of the Vietnam War is being added to aircraft articles most recently by User:Uli Elch, I thought it was decided that aircraft would not be categorised by war (or operators) using the C-47 argument that it would need tens of entries to cover every conflict that it had been used in, comments ? MilborneOne (talk) 16:41, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

The definition of this category (headline) links to Category:Military equipment in bold letters, and that one contains: Military aircraft. --Uli Elch (talk) 17:19, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
Dont understand your reply, certainly all military aircraft appear in the Category:Military aircraft but the only "war" category is the first and second world war. I dont believe any military aircraft were in the Vietnam category until this week, probably due to previous consensus on this. MilborneOne (talk) 17:32, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
See Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2013 February 10#Military equipment of the Vietnam War. I support changing the category text to make it clearer (the wording has been watered down since 2013 without any explanation) and purging of articles that aren't specifically about the Vietnam War. DexDor (talk) 19:04, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
Several aircraft types have been in that category before, otherwise I had not put in additional ones. It is not fair to blame all the perceived evils of the world on a single user without having checked the facts before simply stating it. Besides, usually a header of a category has the status of a definition, and I have adhered to it (see above).
For examples, please check
* Fairchild AC-119,
* Cessna A-37 Dragonfly,
* Grumman A-6 Intruder,
* Lockheed AC-130,
* LTV A-7 Corsair II,
* McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II.

You need to presume good faith Uli Elch all those aircraft where deleted from the cat following the 2013 discussion. As far as I know nobody has blamed you for anything and I appreciate you are trying to correct cateegories but you are not expected to remember all the past discussions hence why it is raised here, to make you aware and to see if the consensus is still valid.

Infobox picture for Boeing 737[edit]

Originally posted at WP:AVIATION but perhaps it goes better here: in case anyone has a moment, your feedback is requested on a possible new infobox image for Boeing 737. Please see options, or suggest your own, here. Thanks SynergyStar (talk) 07:00, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
