a good camera does not necessarily make good photos. Take a look through the Airliners.net database too see what standards are required to get a picture accepted here.
Your pictures lack overall quality, they are dark (backlit), soft, badly cropped and centered and too distant.
A read through the following guide might also help you: http://planecatcher.com/IGRR.htm

Your basic problem is that you are not following Anet rules in terms of cropping, centering and editing. Also with regards to your Nikon D80, see if you can select high for Image Sharpening. This can be found through menu - shooting menu - optimize image - custom - image sharpening. Under image sharpening, select high and then ok. You may also want to review Fergul McClean's PDF article in the photo upload page in order for you to understand the basic requirements for getting your shots accepted.

Quoting Fly747 (Reply 6): look through the database at recently accepted pictures
I could not have said it better myself.
There are plenty of folks on this forum willing to help, but you have to take an active role. In the words of Cuba Gooding Jr. as Rod Tidwell in Jerry Maguire, "Help me, help you? Help me help me help me - Jerry you are killing me!"
