That got me thinking, do any of you fellow members have such albums? Would love to see them as it's a nice way to explore each others flights!
If you don't have one, I'd recommend doing one. Took me surprisingly little time - ~15 minutes for 250 flights - and you can maybe do it in small batches (say if you have 5 spare minutes you can add ~50 photos).
I must also comment that it was Soren (member Birdwatching) that first gave me this idea with his album of the same variation.
Feel free to look at my album and I look forward to see yours!

Is there a way to track which specific tail number I flew a few years ago? That's the only way I could see myself building such an album. Sometimes I don't have a view of the tail number or I'm simply rushed that I don't write it down.

I have done this, but haven't updated it for a couple of years. Main issue is that a good proportion of the aircraft I have flown aren't in the A.net database. I have a separate album on FaceBook which I use instead, with a picture of each plane as I am boarding/disembarking/in flight... but again it isn't that up to date!
The log only includes aircraft flown since 2006, because I never logged any aircraft before that. For instance there are 5 ARNFRALAX roundtrips on LH missing in the log because, unfortunately I dont know the regs for the aircraft I flew on.

I have one as well. It's pretty much in chronological order too All the registrations in the albums are the ones I've actually flown on. There's a picture for each time I've flown with a (double) registration. There's only a few gen-av and some AirGreenland aircraft that aren't in the album because they don't have pictures in the database.

Nice to see so many of you share this idea!
I have one question regarding my album:
Out of my 262 flights, only one of them doesn't have an aircraft with a photo in the database. That flight is Air Iceland 118 from RKV to AEY in July 2012. It was operated by Dash 8-200 TF-JMG (cn 445). There are some photos of that airframe in the database but all are in the United Express (Mesa) colors registered N445YV. Should I add a photo of it in that livery or should I rather just leave a gap there? Hopefully Baldur Sveinsson or someone else of the Icelandic spotters uploads a pic of JMG shortly, that would sort this out for me.

Exactly! You can also clearly see what country I'm from with just a quick glance, that's what 145 flights on your flag carrier does for you...

Or, in some cases, some of us are hub captive and it ends up being "easier" to fly that carrier. In my case, I am held hostage to DL or in the older days, NW. Unless, of course I want to transfer 3 times.

I have the same problem. I flew on PK-GMV (738 of Garuda Indonesia) and there is no photo of this aircraft in the database (but PK-GMU and GMW are in the database !!). Meanwhile, I put in the album another reg (PK-GMR).
Are there another picture of a Dash 8-200 of Air Iceland for you ?
