Excerpt:"And, before we take Wikinews too seriously, take this example of "original" reporting on the site last week: 'I watched the take-off live on BBC News 24. Not a whole lot to say.'"

Original notesEdit

I watched the take-off live on BBC News 24. Not a whole lot to say - 9.30 my time (BST), big white aircraft rolls down runway and takes off! Beautiful to watch. Dan100 (Talk) 08:45, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I just put some more info in, that was stated on-air by the BBC's on-hand expert, who was from Jane's International. Dan100 (Talk) 10:12, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This is not a critic, just a doubtEdit

I have some doubt about the translation of Airbus cust: £8.4bn = 8.4 billion of English pounds and £1bn = 1 billion of English pounds. Is this ok?

Yep. Obviously this reply is way too late, it's just for completeness... Dan100 (Talk) 21:52, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
