The title of this article is confusing. The word "heroin" is easily mistaken for "heroine" and would then make no sense. Maybe a title more like "Afghani plane containing heroin shot down in Tajikistan" would be better? --Zandperl 00:15, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Even simpler - add the word "shipment". So it becomes "Afghani heroin shipment shot down in Tajikistan" Imroy 01:07, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for calling this out. The headline has been renamed. -Edbrown05 01:47, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

The second source says the aircraft was hang glider. Also by searching with Google, both hang glider and paraplane appears. Which is correct? - Marsian / talk 00:08:24, 2005-08-31 (UTC)

Maybe... hang gliding incules paragliding, thus the aircraft was paraplane? - Marsian / talk 00:17:22, 2005-08-31 (UTC)
shooting down a "paraplane", or "hanglider", cruising across the skyline with a motorized propellor would be a hard shot, imo. -Edbrown05 00:20, 31 August 2005 (UTC)
