Example usage

E.g. the source code of the description of File:Finnair Embraer 170 (OH-LEI).jpg:

{{Infobox aircraft image
| description    = 
{{en|1=Finnair Embraer 170 landing to Vilnius airport}}
{{fi|1=Finnairin Embraer 170 laskussa Vilnan lentoasemalle}}
| aircraft       = [[EMBRAER E-Jets|Embraer ERJ 170-100STD]]
| aircraftid     = OH-LEI
| aircraftop     = [[Finnair]]
| aircraftact    = final approach
| imagetype      = photograph
| imageloc       = 
{{en|1=Vilnius Airport (VNO/EYVI), Vilnius, Lithuania}}
{{fi|1=Vilnan lentoasema (VNO/EYVI), Vilna, Liettua}}
| imagedate      = 2007-03-29
| imageauthor    = [[User:arz|arz]]
| imagesource    = {{Own}}
| permission     =
