This ANA Dash 8 seems to have A.net painted on the engine... surely this is Photoshopped in by the photographer? How did this make it into the database?

I think that is the regional name for ANA. Like Delta Connection, UNited Express, or KLM Cityhopper.

Right you are. I looked at a bunch of other ANA Dash 8s and they have the same thing. Silly me for not checking before posting. Very interesting, especially since you can't go on the web to a.net.

A.Net stands for Airliners.net. It also stands for Air Nippon Network.
I must admit I was just a little bit excited when I first saw it.

Correct - since 12/1/1993 you've not been allowed to register a single-letter second-level domain name, such as "a.net". There are a few that were grandfathered in, though, that still work.

The airline abbreviation is A-net, not A.net.
