I was wondering if Johan would be willing, and what you guys thought if he added an option to search by city. All of the photos have a location box, and he could list maybe the top 100 or 200 cities. It would make it easier for finding pictures at a particular city.

Yes, A330DAT, you are right, but would you like to type in the airplane or the airline everytime you search for a specific photo? It would not be difficult to add a "city search" option...so go for it Johan!

It gives you the option to search for lets say landing gears of an Air Canada 744 at YYZ. Something that you can't do now. As there are more and more pictures being down loaded, more advance searches are required.
Maybe we should come up with a list for him to better help. I think that the three letter codes should be there too....

I have tried a few times I type keyword "KORD" or "Chicago" it doesn't work well to pick all those photos. It picks up three letter "CHI" as a PK-CHI aircraft's id. I have no idea why doesn't pick a whole word "Chicago" for photo. It would be a good idea add cities location.

Fallingeese - Advanced search is good, but significantly slower (especially if you only have a modem connection, and have to scroll through several pages to find what location - or any other parameter - you are looking for). I think the idea of having a location selection option on the main page is a good idea, myself.
Maybe its taking it too far, but a date selectioner might be nice also - say 3 menus, so you could select day month and year. How about it? Or will it complicate the main page too much?

You can already search by location, have a look at http://www.airliners.net/advsearch. You make a search of airline, a/c, location, photographer and much more.
I think it would be hard to search for a single city. Someone would be annoyed and say, why is city A included and not city B and so on. However, searching by countries would be nice .
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!
