This definitely needs a major rewrite.

Where does one start? Better to delete the whole of this drivel than have it stand as a serious encyclopaedia article. Alba 06:40, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

When you rewrite it, feel free to blank the page. Just select all the text in the article, and hit delete! --Sysop Ed Poor 09:17, 18 May 2007 (EDT)
Well thanks for deleting all my hard work!!!--Will N. 10:14, 18 May 2007 (EDT)
Nothing has been deleted yet but it does sound like a hagiography. Some phrases leave me confused though, what exactly does "they picked and swated and destroyed" mean? BrianCo 23:25, 20 May 2007 (EDT)
OK, I spoke too soon. Someone deleted all my hard work as well!  ;) BrianCo 23:37, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Just a thought...wouldn't Austria also have a Luftwaffe?AlanE 05:12, 22 May 2007 (EDT)

Possibly because it is a German word and many Ausrtians do speak German.--Will N. 10:37, 22 May 2007 (EDT)

Just a suggestion, might want to remove a few of the pictures until this article gets expanded. I'd say leave the one of the insignia. --Colest 10:45, 22 May 2007 (EDT)

Will N; ALL Austrians speak German. That's the point. The Luftwaffe (which is German for airforce) can be the airforce of any German speaking nation. Don't mind me...AlanE 15:44, 22 May 2007 (EDT)

No rewrite but more info

I haven't rewritten the article but I've added more info. And yes the Austrians do speak German and no their air force is not called the Luftwaffe, it's called the Luftstreitkräfte[1]. This is an older term; it's actually more of a literal translation of Air Force. Hannibal ad portas 00:37, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

Here is some more info on the Austrian Air Force [2]. It's a very interesting article about the formation of the air force and the politics of acceptng US aid in the post war period. Hannibal ad portas 01:21, 30 May 2007 (EDT)


I wrote the additions and previously posted them to Citizendium. RJJensen 07:17, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
