Gefeliciteerd Steven !
Looks like they will use the photo a lot. I am not very familiar with this but I think you could ask between 500-1000 euro (depending of the usage of your photo) Maybe even more. Wait for more replies in this thread and let us know what you are asking and if they are paying ! Succes !
A 365-day usage in several publications should be a high fee, no need to feel like you could scare them.
Depends on whether your photo is "unique"... or could easily be replaced by another one. The good thing for you definitely is, that they already asked what you'd charge, so they aren't looking for a freebe.
Good luck getting this one settled. Big requests don't roll in everyday.

There is a great photo pricing program available and I don't think I have ever seen it referenced on this forum. FotoQuote is a great tool which will give you a price range based on the usage clients are looking for. www.fotoquote.com
I shoot Nikon and Canon, so I guess you could say I go both ways! : )

Aviation Week has a circulation of 96000+ copies. A full page, full color add running 32 times has a cost of $17,045 dollars before any discounts. They can certainly afford to pay you a nice sum for your photo. http://www.aviationnow.com/awmedia/AWST/fullrun.htm
Unfortunatly there where some legal issues which made them decide that they
can't use this photo. Damn! Anyhow, I'm still in contact with them and they
have told me what they are looking for, so this weekend I will be a man on a mission @ AMS.
Also we have agreed on a price, like I said they will be using the photo in trade publications, Aviation Week, Air Force Magazine, Armed Force Journal, and various other trade pubs. And also maybe billboards.
I'm not going to put the price here yet, but I can get myself a very very nice L glass lens!
But that is only if I can get the image/photo they are looking for.
If not they will use a computer graphics designed aircraft which they don't prefer. But if this is the case, the cool thing is, they will pay me a sort of consultancy fee for my time and help. Which I think is very fare.
Just thought I would let you know after the great help I got!!
