The first image that I uploaded to Commons might have a License laundering problem (also known as Flickr washing). If you see this may be a problem as well, please remove the image from this article and/or find another one. Thanks. --Gryllida 11:30, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Review of revision 1660455 [Not ready][edit]

Review of revision 1661204 [Passed][edit]

The source is way off.[edit]

The source is wrong; he never broke the sound barrier, the official video shows a maximum speed of 1,173 km/h (Not very long after he jumps, he begins to decelerate afterwards). Additionally, he jumped at around 29 KM, not 39. The article should be renamed, and have the numbers changed. -- (talk) 02:19, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

If the article is factually in error, a correction can and should be issued. However, we do not change substantive content of our articles more than 24 hours after publication, as that would be revisionism, altering the historical record. --Pi zero (talk) 02:51, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
