Unnamed character (?) Edit

After watching the finale again to catalogue the unnamed characters, I think the character pic and actor name of Michael Borgschulte don't match to the character name "Clarke". I think that Clark was an Air Force official over the radio who spoke to the pilot, and was not the pilot himself. Complicating this is IMDB's claim that the F-18 pilot's name was Clarke. I'm going to give the writer of this article the benefit of the doubt for now, but it seems possible to me that this pilot may actually be unnamed, and at some point we may have to figure this out for sure. If it's wrong, Clarke would be just a "live audio only" character, and we'd move the stuff here, including Michael Borgschulte's name and the pic, over to unnamed military personnel.– Blue Rook 23:52, 18 April 2008 (UTC)talkcontribs

Much as I don't wanna make more unnamed characters, I think you're right here Blue Rook. As well as having a different voice to Borgschulte, Clarke says "the squad's in the air" which I really don't think he would say if he was up there flying with them. Borgschulte is "delta 2" I think, I don't think the captain would be in that position. There's nothing linking Clarke and Borgschulte--Acer4666 (talk) 14:16, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
In real life, I'm pretty sure the only person who directs mission information to the pilots is the command control of the service concerned, in this case the Air Force. What we see, is Buchanan directing the information, I would have thought to command control. Chriscampbell155 (talk) 02:59, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Navy, not Air Force Edit

This guy flies F/A-18s, which only the Navy uses. Can replace all of the "Air Force" mentions?--BauerPhillip24 02:00, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

The general practice in the wiki is not to include any assumption, particularly when they are based in OOU information. The fact that IN REAL LIFE only the Navy uses those planes, doesn't mean that's also true within the 24-universe. So if it wasn't mentioned in the show, I think it shouldn't be here. However, I would wait for Blue Rook or Acer to chime in, though, for a final determination. The same applies here. Thief12 12:45, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Thief12 is right - see this part of our policy. It would be fine to recognise the guy as Navy, if it weren't for the fact that Bill Buchanan explicitly calles up the Air Force to get rid of the missile. You can add a "Background information and notes" section to the article to explain the discrepancy with the real world, but here on Wiki 24 in-universe facts take precedence over real-world information.--Acer4666 (talk) 14:16, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
