I searched on Yahoo or Google for some LAX pictures because I just returned from there before signing up here, I found the LAX airport overview pretty impressive when I departed from there, so I was curious if there are any more pictures.

Too bad that I also found the Non Aviation Forum.  Wink

I searched "airliners" on AOL back before any other search engines existed... found a site with a pic of a 747 on a starry dark blue back ground... the good old days!

Well, since nobody else has, I suppose I'll be the one to correct the spelling, since everyone in Non-av seems to be oh so good at it.

I don't recall how I found airlines.net , but I found airliners.net by looking for plane photos.

 

Cheers,

I think the photos section is a huge draw. I'll come out of the closet and say the real reason I found a.net was before I went to St. Maarten in '02 I was looking at sites about the island and saw some small pix showing Maho Beach and went searching for more. Voila! I didn't even look at the forums for another year or so.

I was searching for a new desktop background. I had googled Air Canada 747 and found this site. I think it was may 2004. After that I forgot about it until July of last year. Then finally joined in Feb '06. I'm glad I did.

On my last visit to Florida, we stayed at the MCO Hyatt because of a 0600 departure time. Our room overlooked the active departure runway(s) and I spent most of the evening on the little patio watching the movements. The hotel "spotting" was the critical mass on a looong-dormant aviation fascination and when I got home, I went in search of photos of MCO and PHL and all that goodness. On dial-up, no less!  Wink Guess what I found...that other site! Big grin No, really, I found this one.  Wink

Same here. I just stopped by to view the latest photos, completely ignoring the message boards. Then I started reading and, well, here I am, lol.

Nice pic! She is sho hot!

On a serious note, I had just got back from IFP after taking some shitty pics with a point and shoot and was talking to my good friend (and future Senator and probably President) Jonathan M Karl about it and how close you can get to the aircraft and he told me about this site.

I had been an aviation fan for years as a younger guy, and kind of fell out of it for 20 years or so. One day at work about two years ago, I decided to Google "Boeing 747" and the rest is pretty self-explanatory.
