recently the Patrouille Suisse was here in Hamburg.
Now I have a question about the double rule. I read the rejection guide but it wasn't 100% clear for me if that is allowed or not. I want to upload a picture where it shows 4 airplanes in the formation and then I'd like to upload another one where it only shows one of the airplanes. It is same day, same airshow, just a couple of minutes apart from another.
I assume this is to be considered as double then?
But I just found out that on the formation picture there are 4 airplanes in it and the single side one shot is another one which is not part of the formation. Is that double as well? I mean it is a different registration.

Quoting Ptrjong (Reply 5): So the close-up wasn't very likely to be a double, even if that aircraft was visible in the formation shot. For formation shots, the info should refer to the closest aircraft.
I agree with Peter here. Although I have to admit that I did it differently here:
where I selected the registration of the leader (#1), I guess it is sometimes difficult to decide - in formation flying - which aircraft is closest to the photographer...
Anyway, I also think that the "motiv" of the formation shot is different enough from a "close-up of one aircraft" in order to avoid a double rejection, or am I wrong here?
I have another shot of the #8 in the database, but since the #8 is not present in the formation shot, I cannot proof my above statement (since different regs - in most cases - cannot lead to double rejection).
