I've got a question especially to the admin(s).
What are the criteria to get in the headline on the frontpage with a new aircraft of an airline or a new coloursheme? Any special rules to follow (except sending a mail to the admin after uploading the picture). Does it have to be one of the major airlines? Or just a very colourful sheme? I'm asking cause I don't wanna send mail to the admin of a new aircraft or new coloursheme which I got if I know in advance that it isn't really of interest for putting it in the headline, cause I think the admin has enough other mail stuff to do.
Any answers would be really appreciated.

This is where editorial judgement comes in. I know I've made the billboard only once, and that was because I was first on with a shot of the American 777 just after delivery (same shot I got on the Airliners calendar). Usually it's a combination of timeliness of the subject, quality of the image, and overall appeal to the readership of Airliners.net.

From what Gary says, "just" a new type for an airline, like Peter's Moldova Embraer is probably not enough. It has to be a new scheme or a new carrier, or at least something more spectacular, like first bmi A330 or China A340.

Thanks for the answers. I already thought that a lilltle airline like Air Moldova is not interesting enough . Another question is has anyone ever sent a mail pointing out something new and has he got any answer if it was not "new" enough? I didn't so you never know if the mail went throug or if it was not interesting enoug hfor the public. Just asking ...

I believe that if the powers at be decide to do a feature on a particular subject, your photos will also be listed.
IE, aA friend of mine go his photo linked from the start page, as he uploaded it when Johan was doing a feature on 707's in the desert, davis montan or mojave I think it was.
