The shot is of a Saudi AWACS currently here in Seattle. If you try to view the picture, it won't load. And neither will any other image, on any other webpage, until you close your browser and reopen it.
I have tried this on 6 seperate computers today, in three different locations, all with the same results.

Interesting. I tried it and could not open any other picture on another database, but when I went to yahoo news and opened the picture of George W Bush falling off a Segway Scooter it opened. But not airplane pictures.
Hopefully the Screeners will alert Johan. I think that photo should be removed. although I'm not sure I understand how it works where it messes up other sites. perhaps the photo is simply corrupted???

I was never informed that my image was removed from the database. I was never contacted by any gov't organization or company about it being a "sensitive" subject. At the time, I figured that if it is taxiing past a public aviation museum... it's no big deal. (?)
I have an e-mail to Admin asking what happened. No response as of yet.
Good eye Royal. I wouldn't have noticed it was missing if you hadn't mentioned it.
