I'd like to congratulate Phil Vabre on reaching his 1000th shot into the Database.
Ever since I met Phil, which I can't really remember when, he has been a great help to me. We had a great day shooting from Melbourne Control Tower recently and I thank him for that opportunity and also for the great pictures he shares with us here.

Quoting Eadster (Thread starter): Ever since I met Phil, which I can't really remember when, he has been a great help to me.
Here, I don't even have to write it myself, Martin has already done it for me . Thanks for all the help and encouragement, Phil! Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet at Avalon this year, but there will be another day ...

Thank you, chaps.
I must say that, for me, the best part of being a member of the airliners.net community has been getting to know my fellow enthusiasts, especially the Aussies. I have long admired your photos and you all provide me with a constant source of inspiration to look at the world with a different eye.
Here's my favourite photo from that cold, windy day on the balcony of Melbourne Tower:
It was fitting too, and a complete fluke, that my 1,000th was a photo of a Control Tower!
Montey - I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you! All I can say is, have a look in the April issue of Airways magazine.
