Paragraph and associated table refer to countries, western Australia is a state. Deletion of the word western.[edit]

Paragraph and associated table refer to countries, western Australia is a state. Additionally the linked term is "Australia". Deletion of the word western.

The text in question is in fifth sentence in the second paragraph of Titanium#Occurrence. The rest of the paragraph refers to Countries western Australia is a state. Deletion of the word western.

Fixing this would be a very minor change, but I'm not autoconfirmed. Also, I'd use an Edit Request template but the guidance says to propose the change first.

Note: If the author intended to refer to the unofficial geographic term or to the state, and the use of the word western is kept, the word western should begin with a capital. Change "western" to "Western".

Additionally the link "Australia" would need to be amended to navigate to "Western Australia". TheGreatPirateCbas (talk) 06:56, 22 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

inaccuracy and needed background[edit]

The aerospace section lists titanium as a component used in the compressor blades of various currently produced high end commercial aircraft turbines. This is false. Its widely known and easily verified that these types of jets and turbofans use *Rhenealloys* and their composition is one of the factors that subjects these components to export restriction or other controls. the 2nd point is just an addition: The segment about the A12 and SR71 and the latter discussion about the Soviet Union's submarines is missing a highly informative tidbit: The US government purchased the titanium for the SR71 FROM the soviet union, at the time by far the only source of the metal in sufficient quantities for the fleet of aircraft. This information can be found in the autobiography of Kelly Johnson of Lockeed Martin Skunkworks. I can't remember the specifics offhand, but IIRC they were purchased by CIA intermediate front companies. Obviously, the soviet union has been known to do that sort of thing over the years (eg they used to be the global 1st source for solid rocket motors for space launch platforms, which would of course include launches of spy satellites and whatnot) (talk) 08:11, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
