I was reading a copy of Airliner World or Airways a few months back and I remember a photo of a AI 747 being identifed as a 737. Hmm...must have been editing error.

Does this happen often in Airliner magazine editing and anyone see similar mistakes?

The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul.

Airliner World is generally OK on accuracy. The real star pupil is Aviation News. I write for both and after I submit a feature to Aviation News, I will always have a thirty-minute phone call from the editor, Dino Carrera, who grills me on every detail, to make sure I haven't been economical with the truth. On the rare occasions where I've guessed something or got it wrong, he or a sub-editor catch me out every time. Also as the author and therefore assumed to have some knowledge, I am always asked to write the photo captions (which usually end up re-phrased, but still, I appreciate having the input to make sure they're right).

If you're not a reader of Aviation News (from Key Publications, same stable as Airliner World and Airports Of The World), I really recommend it. It's the sleeper hit of the world of aviation journalism.
