Well, I have a couple of firsts...meaning that the photos I managed to get accepted were the first ones in the database. They are common TYPES, but the actual aircraft themselves--their tail numbers--are (were) new.
All four photos were firsts in the database tail-number wise, with the C-5 being still the only one of it's registration in the database. The F-15C was first, the second in the database was also mine. Not trying to brag, just happy and a little proud of them.

Actually, its not too difficult for general aviation types. It's not too rare to get the first shot of a military type either. Airliners however are much harder to get a unique entry of, so well done Sleekjet. I have a habit of going off the beaten track looking for hidden odd-balls such as these, which I enjoyed getting and uploading:

Quoting IL76 (Reply 2): I guess people around Hamburg, Toulouse and Seattle will have many unique rego-shots with all the temporary Airbus & Boeing rego's...
Not really, at least in Boeings case. Boeing reuses their temporary registration numbers. For example, I have 12 different shots of N1786B, but all unique aircraft. Boeing test reg's are usually N1786B, N1787B, etc.
