Section needs reworking

This Section of the wiki needs reworking, Many broken, and missing links. Unfinished wiki bits in the aircraft, and Many missing and server errors when trying to download many of the models.

Hi, could you please explain what you meant by this? It is known that not every aircraft has a long and complete wiki page, but that's best fixed by actually contributing, rather than "just" stating it needs reworking ;)
And what do you mean by "server error when trying to download"? Aircraft are not downloaded from the wiki server, so the only thing that could be wrong there is a incorrect link. In that case, please name the pages where you found such links, or even better, try to fix them.

Restructuring

The "promotion" section should probably be moved to the main page.

Sections

fix columns to evenly distributed categories among both columns

Minor edit

I added a link "video tutorials" to "Getting started" and removed the old "FlightGear tutorials" link, since that directed to a tutorial on how to create tutorials - nothing for beginners. --D-79 09:03, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
