Congratulations are in order for A.Net photographer Hongyin Huo (Bubbles) on his 1000th upload. Hongyin achieved this milestone in just under two years, and has been recently appointed to the screening team. Hongyin, well done on your accomplishment, hope you enjoy your time as a screener.

Congratulations Hongyin Huo on you excellent work & for reaching 1000 photos. I've been enjoying your photos very much & I like your comments too. It would be nice to meet you some day since we are both Torontonians! You've been doing a great job of showing off YYZ ..... our big airport!

Very many congratulations to you Hongyin. That is certainly a fine achievement. It wasn't that long ago that I recall us discussing that I still had more photos on the site than you did, so now you are well and truly leaving me behind . For me you have some of the finest quality shots around.
I got to know Hongyin very early on in his A.net 'career' and, since then, through the wonders of the internet, we have got to know each other well. I can say he is a real gentleman and a worthy addition to the screening team. One thing we can all be very sure of outside the team - he will put in a great deal of effort and will strive to be scrupulously fair.

Many thanks to all of you for your kind words!
I think I am quite lucky that I have made many many good friends via Airliners.net. Within these two years, I have got lots of help from you, including photographers, screeners, and forum contributors. Please let me say - 'I very much appreciate your great help, indeed. Without your help, this milestone can't be made and my photos in here might be still at two-digital.'
I also like to take this opportunity to thank all YYZ friends who gave me very much valuable information about spotting in the past two years. I still remember that when I took the first two shots at YYZ, I was loitering around the airport without knowing anything about where to spot. Fortunately I didn't get 'caught' by the police then. The following two shots were taken in my first spotting day, with even no knowledge about 'FedEx hill' or 'Wendy's'.
Talking about my real 1000th shot, Thierry and Walter are correct. It is quite hard, actually, to predict. I uploaded the shot for AC A330 one day prior to that Sunwing B737. However, Sunwing B737 got accepted a little bit earlier. Isn't it interesting? By the way, I have sent the correction request to change the remark.
Yes, like some friends mentioned, I have been selected as screener recently. Many thanks to A.net and headscreeners for giving me this opportunity to serve all the photographers. I will do my utmost to fairly and efficiently screen photos.
Finally, let me again express my cordial appreciation to all of you who contributed this thread, and to all my friends whom I know via A.net or spotting.
