While not aiming to be critical of the individual photographers involved, I would request an answer to this question.
Why are two VERY SIMILAR photos of the exact same aircraft, taken at the same location, on the same day, from virtually the same angle accepted into the database? What exactly does Baddouble mean, how is it applied, and would this not be an instance of baddouble?
That has happened in the past. Two images get inserted into the database either by the photographer accidently, or by some quirk in the software. I just got an email today that I had a duplicate photo like that, and that one was removed leaving just the one. I had never noticed it, and it had been that way a little over a year. They are in the process of removing many of the duplicates according to the email.
