...But, I'm afraid they'd be rejected for low esthetics. This is mostly for the screeners, but any advice is appreciated. It's not my intention to get a "pre screening", I'm not worried about the quality as they are all digital, and of course the right size and without the copyright. I personally feel they are timely, topical, unique, and aviation related; but would they break the rules?

Sorry, No matter how hot these girls are (I know I wouldn't kick any out of bed) these are still badpeople rejections.

You need permission from the people pictured on the photo to be
allowed to publish it. Generally we do not accept photos with
people on them as our database is primarily for airliners. There
are some exceptions though. The rule essentially is that the
primary subject of the photo must be the aircraft, not the
person. If the person is clearly recognizable (facing the camera,
clear mention that permission was given by that person must be
stated in your remarks.";

lol, nice pictures, Brian. You are so lucky to get this oppertunity!! From a critical point of view, i'd say these are not A.net material. Mainly because of the asthetics of the shots, there is much more of an emphasize (I say this like its a bad thing, but this is Airliners.net) on the girls rather than their surroundings .
Do you have one of them outside somewhere, or without the tracksuits on???
So what's the difference with these shots? personally i'd like to see them in the database, great shots Brian .. especially the one that looks like Holly Valance ... that'll get my blood boiling on every visit to a.net

Johan has previously said that he's happy with your previous Hooters Air pictures, even though they have people in them. Given that the subject matter in the first two particularly are predominantly "people" and not airplanes, even if you do have permission they fall somewhat into the "badmotiv" category. However, rather than decide one way or another myself, if I screened them I think that I'd pass them to Johan for a decision.

Yes, of course I have permission. I wouldn't have uploaded them had I not. I have a model release signed by each of the girls, which I can scan and send along if you wish. More specifically, the girls knew the photos would be used for my Airways magazine article, and airliners.net. Knowing this now, would that change your opinion?

The "captianette" is well, lets say photogenic. Everyone I've shown the overhead shot has "commented on its dynamics" therefore its inclusion.
In less politically correct words, people keep emailing me asking to see more of her, so I'd thought I'd try that one. The other two I like as well. Either way, I haven't decided if I'm going to upload any of these three yet. We'll see.

Cockpit shot, there is already one in the DB. That would just be like rehashing the same style photos over and over. (that's my job)
The baggage compartment, well if that's baggage
Still doesn't show anything but a person so maybe try Playboy.
The one in front of the hooters sign, could well be a Restaurant (for all the aircraft it shows)
Anyway, they're posted her now so it has the exposure

I'd like to see them all online but I don't think they have a chance except for the one where shes in the cockpit... I'd definitely try though- if they don't get sent to Johan I would consider appealing (you never know...)
