Usage[change source]

Infobox Aircraft[change source]

{{Infobox Aircraft}}

This infobox is used to summarize an aircraft's key points. It is not used for dimensions or performance; for that, use {{Aircraft specifications}}.

Only |name=, |type=, and |manufacturer= are required fields. All others are optional, though some have guidelines you should follow to achieve the best, most consistent appearance.

{{Infobox Aircraft
|name           = REQUIRED <!-- avoid stating manufacturer (it's stated 3 lines below) unless name used by other aircraft manufacturers -->
|image          = <!--in the ''Image:filename'' format with no image tags-->
|caption        = <!--Image caption; if it isn't descriptive, please skip-->
|type           = REQUIRED
|national origin = <!-- Use the main nation (ie. UK), not constituent country (England); don't use "EU". List collaborative programs of only 2 or 3 nations; for more than 3, use "Multi-national:. -->
|manufacturer   = REQUIRED
|designer       = <!--Only appropriate for single designers, not project leaders-->
|first flight   = <!--If this hasn't happened, skip this field!-->
|introduction   = <!--Date the aircraft entered or will enter military or revenue service-->
|retired        = <!--Date the aircraft left service. If vague or more than a few dates, skip this -->
|status         = <!--In most cases, redundant; use sparingly-->
|primary user   = <!-- list only one user; for military aircraft, this is a nation or a service arm. Please DON'T add those tiny flags, as they limit horizontal space. -->
|more users     = <!--Limited to three in total; separate using <br> -->
|produced       = <!--Years in production (eg. 1970-1999) if still in active use but no longer built -->
|number built   = 
|program cost   = <!--Total program cost-->
|unit cost      = <!--Incremental or flyaway cost for military or retail price for commercial aircraft-->
|developed from = <!--The aircraft which formed the basis for this aircraft-->
|variants with their own articles = <!--Variants OF this aircraft-->
}}

Please note that if there are more than three other users, only the primary user should be listed. For military aircraft, the "user" is the nation operating the aircraft; if more than one of its service arms used the aircraft, that can be noted in the "Operators" section of the article.
