Airliners.net Masthead

Thu Jul 19, 2001 9:04 pm

I was up late last night and was bored, so I made a new Airliners.net Masthead with a 777 replacing the 747, but I was afraid to post it because I thought it might violate Johan's rules about his branding. But here is the plane by itself. Use your imagination. What do you think? Let's see your favorite commercial-liner as it would appear in the masthead...



By the way, this is my 2nd favorite commerical-liner (a close second). My favorite is the B727. I'll work on that one next time I'm bored.

Did You Actually...

...draw that yourself (on the computer)?

If so, very impressive work, indeed! How done?

Although at first consideration, I thought that there was no need for a different jetliner in the "masthead," after consideration, I am now thinking that a rotating series of jetliners (or, what the heck, why not throw in some classic prop-liners as well), like the rotating slogans in the title text, would be a nice touch, good fun.

Sccutler, actually this is a triple-7 I found on Airliners.net pics. All I did was reduce it, put a mask around it to get rid of the background and rotated it a bit to straighen her out (2° clockwise), then eliminated the 747 and replaced with 777. The 747 does have much more a presence to it since the fuselage seems proportionally larger than the wingspan. But I love you idea of several types of liners that rotate. That is great. Maybe if we get enough goods one posted here, Johan will do that. But then again, it would be difficult to change something that has been such a mainstay with the forum. I hope others post there favorites.

They look good, but I think the mast heads would be better if they were at the same angle as the 747 in the current one, showing a little more of the belly and dominating a little more rather that just being below it. Note that in the current one you can't even make out the tail of the aircraft because the shot is so close.

This A340 shot could be a candidate.

RyRy, BH346, thanks! Yes, I think I perfer the 727 myself. It's always been my favorite liner.

Mls, yes, I agree. I'm trying to find pics that are closest to the angle of the 747.

An-225, OK, I will try to find one for you. May take a few days, but I'll try.

I'll try the A340 too

Could not find any head on views of the An-225, but I found some good An-124 ones.

An-225, this is the best I could find. All the other frontal shots was of the plane sitting on the ground, so the wings were very droppy. This one is from a distant shot of a landing, so it is kind of grainy. Sorry about that. Plus this monster is so huge, I had to rearrange Johan's buttons!! LOL!



Here is the A340. Nice pic, but the vert and hori stab. were hidden. Plus I didn't bother with the reflection of the runway on the belly. So pretend it is flying REAL low. heh heh

The A340 turned out better than I thought! Keep in mind that the vertical and horizontal stabilizers are hidden in the current 744 logo. I don't have a preference for the A340, it was just the first A.net photo I found that (1) was from the correct angle, and (2) the entire wingspan was in the photograph, not cut off like the photos Flight152 suggested.

I think the A340 is the only one up here so far that could feasibly share time on the Airliners.net front page with the 744.

Keep up the good work.

.. a bunch of real winners there! Good work, good fun, you have my endorsement.

Which, as of today, may constitute the kiss of death!

Good work, I'll look forward to seeing more, as I am sure others will as well.

There were a few other ones that would have been good ones except they had air stairs attached or the wingtips were cut off. Most of the front shots are at too high of an angle.

Timbo, don't worry. Before I did anything, I emailed Johan to make sure it was OK. I explained that this was just for fun and it would all stay on A-net. He said 'no problem'.

An-225, thanks. I really wish I could've found a cleaner pic of the An-225, but that plane is so impressive it still looked pretty cool on there. That is an amazing plane!!!

Using the Mac version, but I suspect the PC version is identical.

Hi all

Nice masthead Jetservice  Smile

But I think Johan has future plans to replace the 747 with the new Airliners logo.

Granite-

Is the new logo Johan is working on a airplane or some kind of logo that says "airliners.net" on it?
