I really wanted to start up a thread just to make a little tribute to A.net .

Tomorrow is one year since my first A.net meet. It was in ZRH !

Civil Aviation
I have learned so many things reading the threads. Many of my questions have been answered(many of which I had in my mind for years before joining A.net). And its just funny how some themes come up often (Why AF dirty planes?AF A230's in MIA?NW DC9's?Why LH no PTV? Why EZY A319 two doors on wing?Why IB not better service? Peter Max/ Why BA no A380?)

NON AV
Whever I don't know something I go to non av and at least someone will have an answer ! Many useless threads, others funny, sometimes too political, world news, well you know everything that is going on in the world and on internet!
And its funny to see all this"British clan" .They can come up with really funny stuff as it can become annoying, but finally I take it always with good humour  Wink

Trip reports
A way to travel on a plane from behind your computer screen. Sometimes trip reports are so well done that you have the impression you are experiencing the flight yourself. That's why I have written 7 trip reports so far to share my experiences!

Techs op
That's where you learn sooo much about how things work with aviation. Thanks to the knowledge of the many engineers who are A.nutters

Photos
One day in GVA I met a spotter and asked him if he put his pics on the net. when I asled Airliners.net, he told me he didn't know the website! I felt really amazed ! Because you guys have just an amazing database

A.net meets
The best thing that can happen. Not many people around me are into aviation . Its just perfect to be encircled by avation freaks. Without mentioning the friends that you make from all different places...and close friends such as Alphafloor has become !

thanks Johan and all the a.net crew for making this website possible

This is the single best participatory Website on the matter of commercial aviation on the Web, and the photo section is truly amazing.

Bravo to Airliners.net for providing a great place for aircraft enthusiasts to gather and talk about virtually anything worth the effort.  Smile

Hey Braulio! Are you sure it's only a year since your first ZRH meet? I thought I'd met you long before, like 2 years!

Well, it doesn't matter, you're still on the airport's no-fly list!  Smile



Hope to see you again soon!

Saludos!

One of my favourite things about A.net is this:

When I see an aircraft fly low above me , I always look up to see what it is etc. My mates think im stupid and it felt like I was the only one mad enough to be interested. The I found A.net Big grin

I still am dumbfounded when I think of how many people use this site and TBH, its the best site for aviation bods, but also, I was trying to think , but I cannot think of any other website of this quality that is dedicated to this sort of hobby. There isnt a fantastic wuality train or cars one, and even with football or circket, there isnt a community as such, like there is on here. I truthfully think this site is not only the best forum in the world, I thinks its the best site in the world. Period.

Cheers Johan and all the team A.net is one great site.

I know exactly what you mean. People don't understand when I told them I made quite a detour to fly from GVA to EZE . Instead of taking boring GVA-MAD-EZE I flew GVA-CDG-GRU-EZE so I'd get to fly AF, JJ and RG for the first time and also the A318, A330 and MD 11 for the first time .

and they don't understand when i tel lthem I don't mind paying a bt more to go to PRG with flyBaboo than with EasyJet so I'd get to fly the DH8-300 for the first time !

Go for it! The Dash 8 is amazing fun, I flew LGW-EDI-MAN-LGW in a day and bagged that one with BACON. It's like sitting in a cross between a bad massage chair and a lawnmower silly

I ve noticed that as well. There is a lot of messing about between the British members on here, more so than other countries


I for one take no part in all the messing around Big grin

Keep in mind that to some here it is a religion, so don't be surprised if some a.net extremists turn up on your doorstep for talking that way about the site...

Thanks for keeping me interested at school! They have blocked all the other websites that are any good! I love meeting other pilots and especially the trip reports. While it is not perfect, it is great for all things aviation, and over 1.1 million photographs!
