@Mikemoral: For your consideration, this is a photo of the exact plane which crashed: File:Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress (299P) AN2050693.jpg. --SVTCobra 00:37, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Oooh, why thanks! I was trying without much success to track down a Twitter photo by an air traffic officer, but I could not find it. This one is certainly much better. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 00:39, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Things to fix[edit]

  1. Lede has two periods.
  2. WWII -> World War II or better yet, World War 2
  3. Better headline would be "At least seven killed as World War 2 plane crashes in southern US state Connecticut" (talk) 04:29, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
Well, I won't be adding Connecticut as a "southern state", but I will check the other things before publishing. --SVTCobra 04:35, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
The Roman numerals are in the Wikinews category, so I don't think '2' is a good replacement. But I might, rephrase the title nonetheless. --SVTCobra 04:43, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Review of revision 4518502 [Passed][edit]

  • Connecticut is currently on summer time, so UTC-4 rather than UTC-5; hence, 9:54am local time would be 1354 UTC. I checked this repeatedly, and then treated it as if it were a typo and self-sighted the correction. --Pi zero (talk) 07:14, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
(Btw, I too listened to a lot of the press conference, and I can only agree that some of the questions were pretty bad.) --Pi zero (talk) 07:16, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
Admittedly I did not listen to the whole thing. I was mostly interested in quoting the governor rather than the senator, like either media source. The senator seemed insistent at promoting that he called for the NTSB investigation first, even though that largely seems to be something that NTSB does as part of their job. I did source-check the two media sources though with the commissioner's address. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 08:46, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
