This template should be merged with Template:Infobox aircraft --Jarekt (talk) 03:45, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Adding an entry for the construction number[edit]

I thought, it could be good to add an entry for the construction number of the aircraft. Such an entry could be usefull, for example to track the latest operator of the airframe. Any thoughts? abf «Cabale!» 09:37, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

New version of the template[edit]

There seem to be a nice alternative version of this template, created by user:Zolo, Template:Infobox aircraft image/sandbox. It is build as an extension of {{Information}} with a few fields added, so it benefits from few hundred translations of the field names. Translations of the additional field names can be found here. See File:FA-18 Hornet breaking sound barrier (7 July 1999).jpg for example of the new template. Are there any objections about replacing current template with Template:Infobox aircraft image/sandbox? --Jarekt (talk) 13:23, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

I have moved the sandbox code to the main template. Actually the template already made use of {{information}} internationalization messages, but the code was rather complicated, with parts of it no longer used. Using {{tl|information directly should make it more maintainable.
There are two other small changes:
  • "imageloc" parameter now adds {{city}} by default to help with links / localization
  • in: [[:Category:Aircraft by registration|{{{aircraftid-label|Identification}}}]]</td><td> [[:Category:{{#if:{{{aircraftid|}}}|{{#ifexist:Category:{{{aircraftid}}} (aircraft)|{{{aircraftid}}} (aircraft)|Aircraft by registration}}|Aircraft by registration}}|{{{aircraftid}}}]]. I have removed the link to Category:Aircraft by registration. It found that really misleading, as the link seems to imply we will find that specific registration). A link Category:Aircraft by registration is provided in the field header, so there is no use in sometimes having it inside the field as well. --Zolo (talk) 07:07, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
