Nomination of Planform for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Planform is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Planform until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

Third opinion request[edit]

User:Steelpillow and I have a disagreement about whether Airwolf (helicopter), Blue Thunder (helicopter), etc. belong in List of individual aircraft. Note that both of these examples are also in List of fictional aircraft. Please comment in Talk:List of individual aircraft#fictional aircraft. Clarityfiend (talk) 09:32, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

This has now been resolved — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 22:50, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Wing configuration[edit]

Could use some aerodynamic second opinions in a couple of discussions at Talk:Wing configuration: an edit warrior isn't listening. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 22:49, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Military operators - lists of aircraft[edit]

There is a discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aviation/Style guide/Lists#Military operator lists — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 11:01, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Trapezoidal and elliptical wings[edit]

Do these topics merit their own articles? I have started a couple of discussions:

See also section list length[edit]

A long-time editor has added 18 (yes, eighteen!) aircraft to the similar aircraft section in the See also template of the CANSA FC.20 article. I'm not trying to pick on the editor, as this was obviously in good faith, but 18 seems likee far too many to me. I'd like to confirm the the project believes the list should be much shorter. Assuming that, could someone with more familiarity with the type of aircraft cut back the list to something shoter? I can't see all those type being completely similar in role, configuration and era, but I don't know enough about the types to feel comfortable cutting it back mysef. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 06:31, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

18 seems excessive, but it does depend on the aircraft. Many of the 18 were marginal and I have removed them - several were postwar types, many filled other roles entirely such as the multiple night fighters added, when no mention is made in the page about being used as a fighter at all.
In the case of a common role/era/configuarion, then only the best known from the major countries should be listed - ie, a several from the US, two or three from the UK, one or two each from France, Russia, Italy, Japan etc.NiD.29 (talk) 10:47, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

List of accidents and incidents involving the Tecnam P2008[edit]

Stumbled across this recent article. Surely accidents to light aircraft are too numerous to be notable?TSRL (talk) 17:19, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Concur. Merge notable accidents, if any, to the aircraft article, sans table and flags. - BilCat (talk) 21:07, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
The user has created another one at List of accidents and incidents involving the Tecnam P2006T. Could a diplomatic editor talk to this user please? Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 18:01, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
I have redirected them back to the main article for now and left a note on user talk page, as has been said light aircraft accidents are rarely notable and unlikley to support a stand-alone page. MilborneOne (talk) 18:12, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Aircraft maintenance engineer (Canada)[edit]

This article has recently been greatly expanded by a few new editors into a huge, mostly unsourced opinion piece that was not anything like an encyclopedia article. I reviewed all the changes, but it was too much of a WP:COATRACK mess to be able to edit back to something encyclopedic, so I reverted it to the original article. While it was not perfect, the original article was far better than the resulting tome. An editor recently reverted my reversion with the edit summary "Ahunt deleted significant data pertaining to AMEs - This data needs to be available". I have once again reinstated and invited discussion on the talk page. I would appreciate some eyes on this article as well as inputs, as required. - Ahunt (talk) 01:22, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Seems like a little of the Canadian specific text could be added to Aircraft maintenance engineer to cover it. -Fnlayson (talk) 01:36, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Another editor has reverted it back to a very messy state. The article is now full of unsourced text, much of which is wrong or at least irrelevant, unsourced opinion and no longer written or formatted like an encyclpedia article. I am out of reverts. Can someone else please review this? - Ahunt (talk) 13:07, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Lists again[edit]

More discussion on the finer points of tabulated lists of aircraft here. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 11:46, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
