I think I was just screwing around on my computer one evening and came across it. I spent a few weeks looking at the pictures before I joined the forums.

I was looking for airliners pictures. I spent atleast a month looking at pictures, then I started reading the forums, did that for about 2 weeks. Then I joined the forums.

I did a search for airline wallpaper & screensavers. I was mainly into the photos of A.net to start with, I didn't join the forums straightaway.

All credit to my brother, An-225, who got me into aviation and told me about this site. At first, I was always in the Non-Aviation forum and then about 2 months later got all in the Civil-Aviation forum.

I love this site!

Long live AIRLINERS.NET!

Unfortunately, the demise of Egypt Air 990.
Me being interested was looking at the news story of the tragic crash at Yahoo! when I found a link to this site.

Looking for pictures to use in an airline simulation course at university. Was a few years ago now, and there were not many pics compared to now!

Searching for "Pictures of airplanes". At first I didn't think too much of this site, but after a while I realised just how great it was.  Smile

I came across a.net on the internet... I don't really know how, just some link got me here. It took me half a year to join discussions though and another five months to start posting actively. Now, I don't regret it  Big thumbs up

I did a project about Boeing and McDD for my mergers and aquisitions course. For historical stock quotes I needed the ticker symbol of McDD, which you can`t find anywhere in the net, because the company does not "exist" anymore. Searched for an aviation forum, posted it in Airliners.net, 1 1/2 minutes later I got the answer I searched for hours before. Since then I read in the forum everytime I am online and knowledge about aviation has grown a lot since then!

Cheers,

Kjell

It was in 1999, looking for aircraft photos at different places. The first impression, I mean the front page, isn't that appealing (and still looks the same!) but I was impressed when using the a.net search engine were you can find nearly everything you want. I also liked the high quality of the Editor's Choice photos.

Some month later I got my scanner and started uploading photos and now have over 1700 in the database!

I joined the forums begining of January 2000.

I was actually on another forum in another site (can't remember which one) and someone mentioned a.net there. I had a look, and found this to be so superior that I never used that other one again!

Definitely the greatest website I found since I started using the internet about 6 yrs ago!!

I was at a Flight Simulator site and there was the airliners.net picture search engine on it. At first I looked at the pics. Didn't get to the forums for another year.

I was messing around on IRC and found the #airliners chat, from then on (november 2000) I have attended every evening for a few hours, and also, i didnt know about the site until my site was up and running! Then I have been visiting the site from then on, its been 300 days since i last started posting and now i am starting 2 post quite regular. I have found some amazing pictures here but I hope my gallery can do just the same!

Cheers guys.
