AIRLINERS.NET CREW FORUM MODERATOR
We're going to be rolling out an update to the photo search engine today. We're moving away from our pure database approach and migrating to a dedicated search application (solr, powered by lucene).
There are a few options in the drop downs in the photo index (airlines, aircraft, location) that will temporarily be bringing back zero results. After we launch this update, we'll be tweaking the settings there to improve things.
Performance and reliability will be greatly improved. Over time, we'll also see improved accuracy of the search results will as we tweak both the settings and how we store our data.
Related to this - we will no longer be displaying the number of estimated search results before a search occurs. This was one of the factors contributing to higher load on the system during peak traffic. Depending on how things go, we may be able to bring it back eventually, but we'd like to roll this out with as few issues as we can.
Questions and comments are welcome. Feel free to report airlines and aircraft that are non-functional after we announce the code push, and we'll try to get them working again ASAP.
For those of you that would like to know more about it, check out

When clicking on a Registration, it brings back images of that plane. However, when clicking the C/N number, it shows all images in the database. When clicking the airport, it yields no results. This has happened on a few images, but not all.
