Im doing a project for my graphics class and it is to make a CD cover/case. I decided on an aviation theme and I want to use one of Baily's contrail photos. It is not going to be mass used and it just for marking. Its just a picture of a JAL 744 contrail. I want to make the CD about Songs for Flying and about flying. I am not going to be giving it out. It is just a design in Corel Draw and then printed, put into a CD case. Handed in, marked and then returned to me. I want to know if I can use the photo for my work? It is just for evaluation and then I will make keep it as a display in my room. Is this against a copyright issue? Bailey? What do you have to say about it? I will need to remove the a.net banner at the bottom as it is not visual appealing.
Please give me the advice. If I cannot use it, I'll get another photo of something else. Maybe just an AC plane from the Air Canada website.
I also need about 10 songs with aviation/plane related lyrics or themes. So far I have "Leaving on a Jet Plane" Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" and Britney Spears "Toxic". Can you give me a few more that I can use?

You can contact Bailey, I am sure that when he is around he will give you permission for using his shot on your cover. He is a nice guy. He is the only one that can give you permission for that, none of us can choose to do so.

First of all, drop the Britney Spears song. Use:
Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly" (and depending on how flexible/desperate you are, "Free Falling" can work too)
Steve Miller Band's "Jet Airliner"
Led Zeppelin's "Going to California" (it's in there!)

Don't forget the classic Joni Mitchell "This Flight Tonight"
All about a plane trip. Notably she's technically wrong with her lyrics about flaps....listen and see what I mean. You gotta have your CANADIAN CONTENT!!!

Songs that have something to do with planes / flying:
Typically Tropical: Barbados
Reinhard Mey: Ueber den Wolken
Don McLean: American Pie (about a crash)
Lenny Kravit: Fly Away
Shawn Colvin: Another Plane went down today
The Beatles: Back in the USSR (just for the jet engine noise)
Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes: Up Where We Belong
Music that, to me, sounds a bit like flying:
most of the stuff by Enya
Karl Jenkins: Adiemus (used for Delta Airlines adverts in Germany 6-7 years ago)
some others I don't remember right now...
About the project: This is just my opinion, but I believe it's perfectly acceptable, as pupil or student, to use photos for homework purposes without getting permission (as long as you give image credit). When I had to give a presentation about my final year project last year, I borrowed images liberally and used them for a powerpoint presentation. Asking each and every one of the photographers for permission would simply have taken too long...
: How 'bout "Airport" by the Motors (I think) - great forgotten song! and "Luton Airport" (can't remember who did that) Or going back in time a bit "Fly
: Im not really making the CD for the assignment. Its just the case inserts. I might make it myself later on though. Thanks
