Remember the popular photos from HECTOP? Inflight photo of the WTC's as they burned, and his other one over the pentagon days/weeks before 9-11. Just noticed they were removed, what was the reason? I did think it was odd he had photos of both of those landmarks (and just happened to be flying around Manhattan that dreadful day). My only guess was he got too many emails possibly criticizing him about the pics? Or maybe they were not his?

YO Justin,

What happened with the pictures as for before 9/11 attacks with the pictures?!? And can you exactly ask someone about with the your information from the your friends or something etc to do. I did looking as for Johan L. about doing as for the new store of the airliners.net with selling of shirt, cups, stickers, mouse pads and etc to do as for itself. So you might like to buy a stuffs, ok? Well, goodnight!

Regards,

Scott W.

Maybe Johan or Peter V. could inform us to what happened.

actually the picture was taken at the moment of impact of the second WTC. you could see the explosion. i never saw that photo anywhere but on a.net. i always thought something was odd about those, but i was afraid to say anything. i emailed him once and never got an answer.

Well I was trying to avoid saying "maybe it wasn't his photo", but I wonder that too. A stunning photo it was, but it's odd I never saw it published anywhere. This seems like it happened within the past 2 days.

Over 6 days without a response. Was it that big of a deal it has to be kept "hush hush"?  Smile

Peter V. is not involved in deleting pictures, and doesn't know anything about it.

I was only aware of one Hectop photo - still have a saved copy of it somewhere. I know nothing of the deletion of that image, though.

A possibility is that he sold the rights to that photo(s) to some agency and thus had to remove it/them from here as he no longer owned them himself. Wouldn't be the first time that has happened. Most likely scenario, IMO, assuming the photo was genuine in the first place - and on that score it's "innocent until proven guilty" as far as I'm concerned.
