Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Talk:Sydney International Airport

There's no reason for this page to include a big list of IATA airline codes, and the runway / ILS data would be far more useful as a table than prose.—This unsigned comment was added by Zakalawe (talkchanges) 13:37, 13 October 2010 (UTC)


The runway/ils is the format used in other airport pages, so I just copied it. As for the airline stuff, yeah I'm not sure of it usefulness, I think I got the idea from one of the other airport pages, but I'll probably remove it as I refine the pages, along with refining what is useful in the runway section, I'm still thinking of how to add RNAV and VOR approaches, and how much STAR/SID information would be useful to summarise.... Since I only have about 1hour each night to work on it, it might take me a little while to refine it.

Airport models

Q: is there a reason the linked airport model(s) haven't been submitted to Martin for inclusion in the main database? Mediafire links are pretty horrible.

A: They had been, but because some objects had been moved by a few metres (otherwise they float in mid-air over a valley, because the terrain is incorrect), it was rejected, I've tried to keep them as close as possible to their real GPS lat/lon geo-coord, but floating objects just didn't seem right, (tho I kept the ones floating in the harbour) and nobody looked like fixing the terrain. I'll resubmit when the terrain is fixed I guess.
