Hello, FlugKerl2!
Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Identity of the Super Chipmunk you added[edit]

FlugKerl2,

   I'm the rebuilder/owner of the open cockpit Chippy you added to the DHC-1 article.  It's N7DW, a 1951 British Chipmunk.  It left the RAF in 56 and was exported to Australia, where it was a trainer for the Tasmanian Aero Club until 1965.  It was then converted to a Spraymaster and glider tug, and finally in the early 70's was shipped to Texas with 2 other Aussie modified Chipmunks for conversion to a Super.  It was on the US air show circuit through the 90's, most recently flown in shows as part of a 2-Chipmunk formation team (both modified for open cockpit) by Chuck Stockdale.  He flew it 88-2000.  It sat mostly idle until I bought it 2009.  It was tired and beat up, though technically airworthy.  I rebuilt it over 5 years and 5,000 hrs, finished on 27 July 2014 (back from paint shop).  I left for Oshkosh the next day.  The photo you took is dated 28 July, in route to OSH for AirVenture.  It won an award for Outstanding Custom Classic, over 235 HP category (It has an IO-540, 260 HP).  
 Thanks for posting the pic!

Description of Photo[edit]

Thanks for sharing your photo Laird Solution.jpg. I have added that to the page about Laird.

It appears that it might be clearer to describe the aircraft in the photo as a Laird LC-DW500 Super Solution.

To illustrate the different between the Solution and Super Solution, here are images of models at the National Air and Space Museum of the Laird Solution and Laird Super Solution.
