I got an email from the FO in this shot telling me that after looking at his log book that he was the guy in the left seat. He wanted a close up of the nose so that he could show his kids a picture of himself flying.

Happened to me twice, coincidentally on the same plane (N223NW), different crew. I sent them a print and they were very happy to see themselves. Some people in the pilot-association of NW are well aware of Airliners.net. It's quite cool!

The pilots emailed me about the fact that they were on those flights. The guy in the right picture actually saw me. He's an instructor close to retirement and was training a new FE. The guy in the left picture was also a 'newbee' (FO) on the DC10 and was too busy taxiing so he didn't see me.
Actually, come to think of it, I didn't technically sent them prints, but I offered them an edited JPG of the picture for them to print themselves. I trust these guys are not likely to take advantage of the picture so I didn't worry too much about copyright.

I had emails from different pilots already. The one captain, I remember now is a Belair captain, who I happened to put here twice, once on his first Belair flight, and a second time on 31.12.2002. He wrote, how it was on arrival, seeing all those new year fireworks:

This has happened to me several times as well, it's very rewarding to have a crewmember or pilot write you and tell you how much he enjoyed seeing a photo of him in the cockpit on airliners.net! One guy said he remembered seeing me shooting photos of him!
from one of the crew, Systems Operator Bill Matley. Unfortunately, I have been unable to contact him because his e-mail address was from a Hotmail account and if I send a reply it bounces. Apparently this is a problem for lots of people trying to contact Hotmail addresses recently - does anyone here know how to get around this problem?
So, Bill (or anyone who knows him), if you read this, I appreciate your comments and would like to reply, but can't! Send me another e-mail contact address and I'll reply!

No pilots have sent me emails regarding any of my photos, but I do know how to get around the hotmail problem, sort of. You have to set your junk-mail protection to low. I did that, and I do get the occasional 4-5 junk emails daily, but at least the emails I want do come through!
I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

This FO e-mailed me says he was in the right seat of this aircraft. He said the flight crew was excited because they saw a group of 4 photographers (including myself) on one side and another 2 photographers on the other side of the aircraft. He snapped a photo of the other two photographers on the right side, but couldn't get any of my group (without driving the aircraft off the taxiway).

AIRLINERS.NET CREW DATABASE EDITOR
Thanks for your help! So to get a mail through to Mr Matley, he needs to drop his Hotmail security levels, but because I can't get a mail through to him, I can't tell him to drop his security levels, so that he can receive my e-mail.

Received an e-mail shortly after this photo was uploaded to the database. The pilot told me it was his first landing as FO with the 757 and asked me a copy of the picture. Made it for him so I think it has a nice place at his home.
Another one was from the pilots of these helicopters. They noticed me taking pictures and asked via the radio operator if they cab get copies of them. They did no that avition photgraphy is one of my hobbies. Have regular contact now with a couple of them.
