Well if my 747 doesn't make it I'll be appealing in the most ferocious nature in light of Stephen's acceptance, LOL!!!

That's it folks, upside down airliners are now OK, so long as you tick 'creative'........

I don't think your 747 shot has a chance upside down. Seems to me that the helicopter was really upside down so it was accepted, however I doubt the 747 was really upside down, I bet that it will be rejected.

But nice try though.  spin

So, does it need 180 degrees CW or CCW?  Wink

Karl, you always have a great sense of humor.  Wink

However an easy way to spot fake rolls is the direction of lighting. The top of the chopper is shadowed, while the bottom of your 747 is (relatively speaking).

Now come on Dvincent; of course the shadows are opposite - I shot the bloody thing in the southern hemisphere!!! And besides, it was (a very strong) sunset so the low light illuminated the 'plane's top fuselage only.....  Silly

Do I sound convincing enough?

...In the meantime, let me know when I've been rumbled so I can take it out of the queue and replace it with something that'll stand a lil' more chance................

You've got me there Karl. It's a very compelling argument.  Wink

Now, you let the screeners in on my biggest secret, Karl - all my airplanes in the DB were also shot upside down, I had to rotate them 180 degrees to get accepted  Smile .

Cheers,
Andrei

Now THAT would've been an exclusive Georg - can you imagine taking a photo of my upside-down 757 flying alongside that upside-down chopper?!?!

Unfortunately Georg and myself are going to let you figure out which craft was upside down and which wasn't when the photo was taken.....
