I just thought it worthy to mention that resident airliners.net photographer Frank Schaefer recently passed over into the 3,000,000+ hits "club"! This is both testament to his dedication and loyalty to this website and also to his skill as a photographer.
Frank doesn't shoot digital, he shoots K64 and every shot in his 9000+ here has been scanned and edited which as we all know takes an enormous amount of time to do.
I'd just like to congratulate him on achieving 3 million plus hits and wish him well in achieving the next 3 mill.....
Here is his first and latest - how the times have changed!

Bravo Frank!!! Love all your side on slides style, you are one of the most discipline person in photos and I am very honored to live near you...you are the biggest Kodachrome guy in Australia too, when I think about K64 I think about you, cheers!

LoL - Frank, speaking of the Wallabies, how do you think they will fare? My money is on the Poms at the moment (Darn Pommies!). But then again, I prefer cricket to rugby, and in that department - the Aussies have kicked butt all over the globe... Especially the Poms!!!

Congratulations of passing the 3 million mark.
Keep up the excellent work.
I can only say I wish I saw you out there more often. Glad I had the chance to meet you those couple of weeks back. Would have liked to have a slide show on your wall there and then (upon seeing you amazing collection - I could have been fixated on the shots for several hours - maybe another time)
Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...

Soulman - hopefully the Wallabies will rise up to the occasion .... as long as we keep beating the poms in soccer I'm happy anyway .....
Glenn - yes - was good to meet you, too ... I did quite a few sessions at the airport this winter - unfortunately you seem to stay away from my favorite and only morning spot (The corner) and i don't like shooting from The Mound at all ! This fence is just annoying ... and unless its a perfect sunny day i won't even make it to the airport (yes- i am spoiled) ... so with summer coming up shooting will be limited again to very early morning or late pm ... surely i will catch you one afternoon on the new observation deck ...
For the slides - there are about 30.000 - 35.000 at my place ... would take u some time to see them all ... haven't seen them properly myself for a long time ...
