I think it's likely to be your photo. The dash of light on the lower surface of the stab is especially suspect.
But I guess it will be impossible to prove in a case like this.
If they simply deny it, which they likely will, it will be a lost case I'm afraid.
I'd say you can give it a try of course, but be prepared to rest your case.

Quoting B076 (Reply 11): I think there is progress in this case.
The president of flightsoft Mr. Zoffreo contacted me last night.
He will check into this matter at once on Monday morning.
So maybe this story will have a happy end
He also told me that most of the photos were given royalty free and in some instances deals in exchange for free products
Well, I cannot speak for other photographers here but in my case the photo was not given royalty free.
So we will see what happen Monday!
Remember, the company might be telling the truth. It's entirely possible that somebody else ripped off the photos, removed the copyright bars and then gave them to the company in exchange for free product or something. The company MIGHT have been innocently duped. Just look at the "idiots" who post A.net photos on eBay and try to sell them. Could be the same scenario here.
It will be interesting to see the outcome of this situation. But from the sounds so far, the company is responsive, and that's a good sign..... so far.
