Parameters[change | change source]

Required parameters in bold. Alternative names for use when only one aircraft involved are shown in italics.

Parameter Explanation
name Occurrence's commonly-known name (defaults to {{PAGENAME}}).
occurrence_type Accident, Hijacking or Occurrence. (Few notable occurrences are classified as incidents. See Aviation accidents and incidents); defaults to 'Occurrence'
image Picture of the accident/incident or its aftermath, or, if involving a single aircraft, that aircraft. If a free image of the actual aircraft is not available then an aircraft of the same type can be used, be aware that aircraft in other operators markings may be misleading and focus on an operator not related to the accident. Representations or computer generated images should not be used.
alt Alt text for image above, for visually impaired readers; see WP:ALT.
caption Caption for image above.
date Date on which accident/incident occurred. Use {{Start date}}
summary Brief factual summary of the occurrence.
site Accident/incident's location (e.g. placename, nearest city/town, country).
coordinates Accident/incident's site coordinates. For coordinates, use {{coord}} with display=inline,title. Please do not be overly precise.
For two/three-aircraft occurrences:
total_injuries The total number of people injured in the accident/incident. Add in brackets if any of this number were people other than crew or passengers, or if it was everyone involved (e.g. "123 (4 on ground)", "123 (all)").
total_fatalities The total number of people killed in the accident/incident. Add in brackets if any of this number were other than crew or passengers, or if everyone involved died (e.g. "123 (4 on ground)", "123 (all)").
total_survivors The total number of people who survived the accident/incident. Add in brackets if any of this number were people other than crew or passengers, or if everyone involved survived (e.g. "123 (4 on ground)", "123 (all)").

passengers
Number of passengers onboard (first) aircraft.
plane1_crew
crew
Number of crew onboard (first) aircraft.
plane1_injuries
injuries
If a single-plane occurrence, the total number of injuries caused by the occurrence; add in brackets if any of this number were people other than crew or passengers, or if it was everyone involved (e.g. "123 (4 on ground)", "123 (all)"). Otherwise, for a two/three-aircraft occurrence, the number of people injured onboard the first aircraft.
plane1_fatalities
fatalities
If a single-plane accident/incident, the total number of deaths caused by the accident/incident; add in brackets if any of these people were other than crew or passengers, or if everyone involved died (e.g. "123 (4 on ground)", "123 (all)"). Otherwise, for a two/three-aircraft occurrence, the number of people killed onboard the first aircraft.
plane1_survivors
survivors
Number of people involved who survived. If a single-plane accident/incident, add in brackets if any of these people were other than crew or passengers, or if everyone involved survived (e.g. "123 (4 on ground)", "123 (all)"). Otherwise, for a two/three-aircraft occurrence, the number of people onboard the first aircraft who survived.
The parameters for a second and third aircraft involved in the accident/incident (plane2_ and plane3_) follow the same pattern.

Microformats[change | change source]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[change | change source]

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{Start date}} (unless the date is before 1583 CE).

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change | change source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision[change | change source]

When giving coordinates, please don't be overly precise. The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project on English Wikipedia.

Sub-templates[change | change source]

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates; but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE).

URLs will only be included if you use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change | change source]

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
