How Did You Find Airliners.net?

Tue Apr 09, 2002 10:36 pm

How did you come across a.net? I found a.net after i went into yahoo.com as usual and typed in "airliners" as i usually do, then in the search results came up airliners.net. I clicked on it to see what it was all about.

I actually found a.net more than 2 years ago, but i only looked at the pictures and read the post. It was last year that i decided to become a member and start posting, from then on, wolla!!! the rest is history!

How did u stumble across a.net?

I was meaning to post the same question. I was searching for a good Qatar Airways picture to use in a report I was writing about tourism for one of my classes. When I was searching I found a website hosted on Geocities that had a search engine for pictures. The search engine actually takes you to the airliners.net discussion forums. I checked out the photos and the discussion forums. When I saw some posts about Qatar Airways that were misleading I decided to sign up to set things strait and also create more awareness about my national airline.

Here is a similar search engine, notice I have tinkered with the code for it to include Qatar Airways as an airline.

I came here after looking for some add-ons for flight simulator. I guess some site had a link here, and the rest is history. I actually just looked at pictures for about 2 years. I discovered the forums only in mid January, and then I decided to become a member.

I found it by a search engine while searching under the keyword "Airliner photos." I really wanted a picture of a 737 for a report.

I found it in an article in I believe either Airways magazine of Airliners magazine. The guy would write a monthly column about all sorts of aviation related websites, and he wrote about airliners.net right when it was budding. It only had about 3000 photos then, but was still the most extensive photo database on the web. That's when I joined, ahh the good ol days  Laugh out loud

Actually a freind of mine had an photo from Airliners.net on the background of his computer, and I saw the little black line at the bottom where there was the Airliners logo.

The day after SR111 went down I was looking for some pictures and more details of HB-IWF (the M11 that was lost).
I was given this site address at Yahoo and thats how I found A.net, ever since I'm here!
