The article about this crash that has been all over the headlines in Norway and Sweden the last days (Swedish Aftonbladet, Norwegian VG) has somehow been nominated for deletion by user WilliamJE per the poorly-writtenWP:AIRCRASH, an "advice of content" that led to the AFD'ing of a ton of plane crash articles click

I'm surprised to see a ton of users voting to delete based on the AIRCRASH, without the fact that it is only an advice on content created by a WikiProject in mind!

The NOTNEWS policy is also total baloney, if it is interpreted in the strictest way articles about the July 22, July 7, 9/11 attacks, etc. could have been deleted up until an official report was released, because until then it is a news event!
