Back when the magazine airliners had a section on aviation related web sites, I saw Airliners.net listed. It was around 1997 or so. Been around ever since.

A internet search for pictures I could use in a research paper I was doing my senior year in HS. The first site that came up that had plane pics was airliners.net. Big thumbs up

Found it a few years back when searching for commercial airliner photos. I didn't sign up for a username till a while after. I looked up so many photos everyday. This website is amazing!

take care,

It's Jan Mogrens "fault". It all started when I first just looked in the photosection.
When in doubt, flat out!

A friend of mine told me about A.net. First, I didn't like it very much, but after a while I was caught,. Now I'm in here daily.

I think I found Flightsim.com while searching for FS2000 on Altavista or something...

Searching for airliner photos on Altavista. I couldn´t beleive the extent and richness of the photo database. I was the happiest man on earth. And then the forums!!! Man, I realize I know nothing about aviation. Everyday you learn something new at a.net!!!  Smile

My instructor told me about it. But he said Airliners.COM when it was really .NET . Took me awhile to figure that one out... Big grin
