I can recall many previous topics asking if photos taken from mobile phones had the quality to get accepted here on the site. The general consensus was that it would would take a bit of luck. Of course there were a few exceptions where some mobile shots had already been accepted for things such as notable and unexpected events that were also priority screening candidates.
Well as with all things, technology continues to evolve and in a separate topic I read the following post.
It's good to see that the quality is finally reaching acceptable standards.
All of the shots are of static aircraft so I guess the real benchmark will be for an aircraft inflight. much more challenging of course due to the natural distance. I don't believe that the zoom on a phone or tablet can still keep the overall image quality. I'm sure it will me a different story in the next 5 years or less.
Oh, it's a big pretty white plane with red stripes, curtains in the windows and wheels and it looks like a big Tylenol.
