What about the registration for example. Did the screener give you any personal comment?

hm... interesting. This was a photo which I've uploaded some time ago. Will try it again.

pic #2 - I can't believe that you are not able to see the fortress!  Wow!

No, I haven't got a registration. I asked the pilot for it but he couldn't give me an answer. Interesting, eh?

Wietse, yes, you're absolutly right. I thought this registration-code wasn't up-to-date because of the fact that pilot couldn't tell me it. Hmpf.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Hi Boeingholiday

The rego number is perhaps the most important way of truly identifying an aircraft (single rotor, jet, etc). All aircraft have them. This information should be provided and, in any good photograph, the registration number is usually visible in order to enter the data in the upload page.

Also additional, or rather, more precise information in the remarks field adds a richer explanation of the particuar happenings at the time the photo was taken. This field is optional really but Bruce's remarks about the fortress in the background of the helo photo serves as an example of precision of information. (that chopper photo does seem a tad dark too - try to lighten it up a bit).

Third, proper aircraft information is preferred. I myself, at one point a couple of years ago, couldn't distinguish an A320 from an A330 (believe it or not). For me the reasoning was: "As long as it flies - what's the difference". I would check other entries in the database by doing a search based on the registry and find out the aircraft type and then make the effort to enter that data to keep a standard. There are other sources on the internet that help individuals identify aircraft types (fixed wing, whirlybirds, etc) by their respective registration number. Here are a couple of sites to start you off (no particular alphabetical order):

Canada - Canadian C-number registries search
UK - UK registries (g-number)
USA - US registries (N number)
Germany - German registry search (d-number)
Austria - Austrian registry search (OE-number)
Switzerland - Swiss registries
Netherlands - Dutch registry search
Australia - Australian registry search
Italy - Italian rego search

Hope these links help you and others in determining the aircraft type based on the registration number before uploading.

I think the 1800 PS in Markus' remarks under his shot is for '1800 Kilometer pro Stunde' -- Austrian for 1120 miles per hour (nicht wahr, Markus?).

Filling out as many of the drop-down boxes as possible in the submission form in addition to providing other pertinent information in the remarks section adds a lot to the experience of viewing your photo as well as increasing the chances that it will be accepted.

For example, if you had entered the Austrian registration number 'OE-EXS' in the drop-down field on the helicopter shot (even though it does appear in the photo itself) the viewer could search for other pictures of the same aircraft in the database simply by clicking on the registration number, in the same way that clicking on the word 'More' next to the airport location will yield all other photos in the database taken at that airport.

It is a good idea to keep a log of the shots you take containing registration numbers, aircraft manufacturers, type designations, versions etc to help insure you have the data necessary to fill in the blanks. Last night I spent two hours doing web searches to locate information on three Unlimited Class Aerobatic airplanes I had recently photographed because I neglected to take good notes at the airshow.

I liked your tack sharp closeups. The shot of the helo on the ground could use some work. Because of the backlighting it is difficult to get the brightness and contrast to come out right without the sky going white and the background washing out.

That helicopter isn't dark, It just needs a bath. Laugh out loud

I have a feeling that it was probably leaving the registration off of it when it is clearly visible on the tailboom is what killed you.

The pilot really didn't know the registration of his aircraft. I hope he wasn't planning on radioing anybody.  Nuts

No Nick, PS is the German term for HP (horsepower). 1800PS means 1800 horsepower...

I wish I were flying
