Sorry Gh123 but both pictures will definately not make it into the db (were they taken with a handy-cam?)
because they don't have the quality.. there is way to much grain in both, just to mention one point!
And for the second one there is also the fence which makes it impossible to get it accepted, even if it would be of 100% perfect quality... and not to mention the cropped out nose....
There are some amazing photographers on this website who take some amazing photos. Sure, you have to cut our the crap but remember one thing which I think many forget - It's all about the aircraft at the end of the day.

Quoting Gh123 (Reply 5): Well I thought that due to significance, certain pictures should be put on the database.
Maybe, but that is such a common aircraft. Just because it's rare in your part of the country doesn't mean that it absolutely has to be accepted. A DL 757 came into LGW earlier this week. It's rare in the UK but if I took a picture of the same quality of yours, it wouldn't get accepted. Same principle.
Quoting Gh123 (Reply 5): I only took on my digital camera but still, in my own opinion significance counts.
Well then keep it in your personal collection? Or add it to myav?
Quoting Gh123 (Reply 5): Look at this photo - sure it's old but what about the significance.
Yes it's old, but that makes all the difference. There was hardly any screening requirements back then. Try and upload a pic like that now and it wouldn't get anywhere.

Exactly, and this particular aircraft is common. Maybe not in Lexington, but elsewhere, it is.
