"Closest air-to-rail link"?[edit]

Quoth the article:

Upon its completion (expected mid-2009), T.F. Green will have the closest air-to-rail link in the country.

This sounds like marketing fluff to me. Can someone explain what precisely it's supposed to mean? The closest physical set of rails next to the runways? There are intercity rail stations immediately adjacent to terminals in Philly and Anchorage, and light rail/metro stations actually integrated into the terminals in Minneapolis, SFO, St. Louis, Chicago O'Hare, Reagan Nat'l, BWI ... and that's just off the top of my head. --Jfruh (talk) 21:21, 9 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Don't know. Many rail organizations are tauting this as something new and amazing and necessary to American infrastructure. Maybe it's special because it's so near an Amtrak station (i.e. a long-distance rail type connection.--Loodog 03:47, 10 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm guessing they are indicating that the airport is so close to pre-existing rail lines, unlike the subway lines that were built for other airports. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.183.11.17 (talk) 00:08, 25 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've done some research so that this statement is now sourced. Apparently, "passenger rail" as intercity rail distinguishes itself from local subway lines. The link will be the closest long distance rail connection in the country.--Loodog 01:42, 4 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Improvement[edit]

To whomever has the time and would like to work on this:
Overall, this is a well-done article; however, a picture of the airport would add much and many facts are unsourced.--Loodog 01:52, 4 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Title of article[edit]

Yeah, officially T.F. Green is an International Airport, thus the title of the article needs to be changed 68.9.255.198 20:54, 28 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not quite... while T.F. Green accommodates international flights and has a customs office, its official name is Theodore Francis Green State Airport. However, T.F. Green is sometimes called T.F. Green International Airport (as it is labeled in Google Maps, various web pages, and publications), so it should be noted as such. Randhuck (talk) 18:23, 6 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2007 CRJ accident[edit]

Assesment[edit]

I have raised the Article to C-class it may well be higher I just need to review the other areas first, bit concerned about the size of the 1999 runway incursion section if this is not notable for a separate article then it perhaps needs reducing in size as it is bigger than the history section. MilborneOne (talk) 22:42, 24 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The United 1448 incident is very notable; however would probably be rejected as an article. Tofutwitch11 (TALK) 19:27, 1 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why PVD[edit]

Unless I've missed it, I don't think the article explains why the airport's code is PVD. Presumably the P is for Providence? I imagine it's from the airport's former name, whatever that was, before it was renamed after Theodore F. Green? 146.90.199.184 (talk) 00:43, 9 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's for ProViDence. Many codes are named after the city the airport serves, and not its official name. (Take Logan airport, which is BOSton or Bill/Hillary Clinton airport which is LITtle Rock) Randhuck (talk) 14:41, 9 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:28, 9 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

International destinations map[edit]

Should we get rid of the international map? Doesn't make much sense to keep it just for flights to Toronto.Mirza Ahmed (talk) 06:14, 15 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
