I am wondering whether this shot would be acceptable to the database as it shows quite clearly the pilots face.It was taken during a photo shoot for the pilot concerned and he is quite happy for it to be submitted and published if accepted,I will of course recrop it slightly to incluse the whole of the wheel.Just wondered what the policy was before I uploaded as I can't find a reference to such in the search engine.
If the first shot is not acceptable is the second or is it too similar to the one I already have in the database that was top of the last 24hrs last night?How many shots of the same aircraft can you submit.

No. 1: no
No. 2: no
No. 1: Motiv
No. 2: Double
I don't see a reason why you should submit an other photo of the aircraft, taken, as far as I see, moments between eatch other. The one that was top of last 24 hours was great, aren't you happy enough?
Sorry if you find me being harsh, but I just don't understand why you should upload two similar photos...
Nevertheless, No. 2 is a great photo, no matter what I say about the double-'ness'.

The second shot would be a double, for sure. As for the first one, I believe it´s allowed to show people only if they´re the pilots of the aircraft you shoot. You shouldn't use them as the main subject in the picture. This time I think it´s fine, but not much of the a/c can be seen, so it might fall under the motiv rejection. Try to crop not so tightly and see what happens.
