Over the years AirNikon have always kept a low profile, but he is a good photographer and contributed to the database of many valuable photos from the 80s (over 9000). He have also helped me spotting at LAX a long while ago when I first started this hobby. AirNikon is also a great screener, and have screened most amount of photo (454654) of all screener. This site would not be so successful without Mike's imminent contribution.

I would like to congratulate Mike for this great honor, 6 million views, and above all. Thank you for taking your time for all the volunteer screening.

Sam

Indeed, Sam, let me be the first non Crew to congratulate him.

Amazing by the way, you take the time to congratulate him, all of you screeners, and yet, I still see the queue dropping and dropping and dropping.
I'll just add that now, and thanks to him, AirNikon has more thousands of hits than there is pictures in the queue  Big thumbs up (Sam, you're next)

Cheers,

707

Congratulations, Mike, from a non-crew member. That's a hell of a lot of hard work on your part to get so many photos scanned and uploaded, not to mention the time you spend screening and shooting. Your days must have more hours in them than mine.  Smile

Congratulations! An incredible achievement, and an unbelievable screening statistic! I can't believe you've screened so many photos yet have not once said anything on the forums about the way the screeners are treated or why x photo should have been rejected or shouldn't have...!

Congrats Mike!!!

You're not only a quiet achiever on the photography front, but you're always screening very regularly and very fairly. We never hear a bad word from you ever.

I am still wondering about the mystery of your last name.

Best wishes,

Glenn

You currently have 60 photos in our database. The large version of all your photos have been viewed a total of 23961 distinct times
That's about my poor contribution and when is compared to those monsters of a.net..Never reachable. Outer world photographers...

Congratulations

Congratulations mate, while I'm a firm believer in hits being irrelevant in the whole scheme of things I must say the diversity of your work is what sets you apart from nearly everyone else. You shoot near anything, anywhere at anytime - to achieve 6,000,000 views uploading in this manner is very very difficult.

From his first to latest - always something different.... just the way I like it!

Thanks guys. Craig, your comments really made me smile. I DO like oddball aircraft at oddball airports. I have the scratches/scabs/bugbites on my legs to prove it. Unfortunately, I don't have airport or jumpseat access anymore and I am too much of an old fart to stand atop a ladder in the back of my truck for hours at the airport anymore.

However, whenever I go train-chasing in Arizona or Southern California, IF there is an airport nearby, I always take a look. Sometimes there is something to shoot, and others not.

Mike,
First of all, great work over the years- please don't ever stop! You do great work and your passion shows in the photos!

Second:
Where is Joe Pries when you want him?

-Sam, ATR has been killing me, this is our busiest season and i've been a slave to the site so no time for anet or much of anything else- also now preparing for the FRA convention which is taking up alot of time too.
