    In the article under the Vietnam Section there is a passage that says ""Rolling Thunder saw the first combat use of electronic computers aboard PIRAZ ships to display comprehensive real-time aircraft position information for force commanders."". I highly remember that in WWII there was a computer that calculated artillery trajectories and therefore this needs to be changed to either that Rolling Thunder was the first Aerial Combat use of computers or define First use in a way which excludes previously mentioned artillery computer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.63.70.216 (talk) 13:46, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

    In my oppinion aerial warfare is a subset of military aviation. Military aviation is the larger set, because it includes operations in peacetimes. 81.221.156.10013:31, 13 June 2006 (UTC) Please Discuss this on the Military avaiation talk pageto keep things tidy.

    Just made a start on this. Please feel free to add. DJ Clayworth19:38, 25 Mar 2004 (UTC) 1. Fine with me. I just started "air war" a few minutes ago!Doovinator19:49, 25 Mar 2004 (UTC) I thought Coral Sea was the first sea battle fought entirely by aircraft, not Midway. It was certainly earlier. PatGallacher11:40, 2005 Jun 5 (UTC) Note: Correct, Coral Sea was the first clash of carriers; Coral Sea was a stratigic US victory, but a Japanese tactical victory. Midway was a decisive US victory. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.208.49.119 (talk) 07:19, 3 May 2009 (UTC) Just to say that some of the stuff written here is wild generalisation. If you're reading this, please don't take it seriously. DJ Clayworth22:03, 3 November 2005 (UTC) What about the Battle of Adrianople (1913) It is known that aeroplanes were used by the Bulgarians --86.101.163.16514:33, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

    Lots of it. Far too general. Guapovia22:32, 28 January 2006 (UTC) 1. Suggestion: Three sections in each sub section: Observation, Fighter, and Bombing Missions. Can be used to comment on the individual changes in aerial strategy.

    This line was removed from the article. Everything about it is inaccurate including the link at the end. There are many web sites that are reporting inaccurate informatioin about hot air balloons in the Civil War. The Union Army used gas filled balloons. 1. 1.1. The Union Balloon Corps, with seven balloons including the Enterprise, was run by Thaddeus Lowewho developed a system of gas pumps to inflate his balloons in the field.

    The line "The U-2 at its time was supposed to be invulnerable to defensive measures, due to its extreme altitude. It therefore came as a great shock when the Soviets downed one piloted by Gary Powers with a ground-to-air missile." is not really true. The CIA (who operated the flights) and indeed Eisenhower, always knew that it was just a matter of time until the Soviets developed a method to shoot down the U-2s. Even the manufacturer, Lockheed, expected it, and so began work on the next generation of spy planes (namely the Sr-71) in anticipation. The "great shock" was that the timing of the downing, which cam just before the paris peace conference and contributed to the sense of cold war between the USA and USSR. --Corinthian 00:04, 8 June 2006 (UTC) I agree - I've removed the "great shock" phrase 139.133.7.3805:02, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

    I don't know if it's a coincidence or what, but the major balloon used in the Battle of Fleurus by the French was l'entreprenant. I'm sure Lowe read about it, and his wife Leontine was French. But their first big balloon they saved up for and built was the Enterprise which is the closest translation to the French name. Maybe not so coincidental.--Magi Media01:39, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

    This article is totally missing the sense and use of miltary air lift capacity and capability as was so critical in so many theatures and conflicts (re: General William H. Tunner), not to mention a...

    I just have one question on the validity of the rather short and blunt section about China flying kites for reconaissance missions. How does that work? They didn't have any cameras, sensors, or PEOPLE on board the kite, so how can this be true? When did that actually happen, anyway? Is there a source? AceFighterPilot00:28, 4 May 2007 (UTC) Yes, is there any evidence for this? 139.133.7.3805:06, 19 May 2007 (UTC) 1. Yes, there is evidence. See this versionand Buckley pp.22-23.

    Does a floating Chinese lantern really qualify as aerial warfare?139.133.7.3804:59, 19 May 2007 (UTC) 1. If it is used as a signaling device to friendly troops—yes, but I haven't found any evidence for this use. In this version of the article, you can find the reference to Boyne p.370, but he only make a very brief reference to "reports" of balloons being used in Ancient China.--Mumia-w-18 (talk) 13:52, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
