You will indeed need to supply the serial # for both. The F-15's is quite easy to see on the tail, but you have input it wrong. It should be 84-0044, with cn 924/D052 and code LN. The GR4 is a bit trickier, but if you have a different frame where you can read the code off the tail, that should be enough to enable you to find the serial. If you are unable to do that, it would be best to remove it from the queue.

Thanks for replies
How should I go about correcting the error for the F15 and the GR4 (if I can find the info) - should I use the re-upload function - seems the obvious thing, but I see it say that is for submitting an improved photo, which I'm not.
Also how did you obtain the c/n number - is there a database somewhere,

Re-upload is only for already-accepted photos. Look for an option to edit your photos in the queue.
The best database for the numbers is right here! Enter the serial and do the lookup and the others should auto-populate. If there is no photo of the aircraft in the db, then this is a great site for US military aircraft: http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_serials/usafserials.html
Many thanks for the Scramble link - superb resource!
Also, just had an email from another photographer who was in the Mach Loop that day who has provided the code and serial number of the Tornado - it was tail code 011, serial ZA400 and from Scramble it's construction number is 204/BS067/3099. If I can't manage to edit the info (but I would really like to know how!), could it be added prior to screening?

Quoting alchad (Reply 7): This is all I see - option to delete but not edit. Am I missing something??
No, unfortunately you are not. There is a button to allow you to correct info for the first few days after uploading, but it seems to disappear after that. Sadly, we (the screening team) have no control over this, so you will need to delete the photo in question, and upload it again with the correct info.
On a side note, the GR4 did look quite noisy, so you can also take this opportunity to address that before you upload it again.
You've also (unwittingly?) posted your email address in the screenshot, so you might want to remove that

I have just checked and I continue to see the 'Edit' Button in my upload queue (after many days). This feature was a hard fought helpful addition for photographers, so it should be available to all. Maybe needs to be reported as another 'bug'?
