Returning To A.Net

Sun Jul 27, 2008 4:49 am

Hi all,

After a few years of non-stop college and work I have now got some more time to get back into the things I love, first and fore-most Aviation. Basically I am simply writing this post to say hello to everyone I know from over the past four years I have been a FC member of a.net, and to say hello to everyone new to the forums after I had left.

Anyway, to cut a long story short expect to see me around the forums a bit lately as I indulge myself in endless aviation disscussions.

Cheers and hello to all!
Aaron.

How did it take until December of 2004 for someone to come up with the obvious user name of Aviation? Such an obvious name of a site like this, wow.  Wink

Welcome back, it's...different here.

Yeah, put it this way I was very surprised when it was available!

I like your comment though, "it's different here", bit like that huh?
The a.net forums were always a strange place when I used to hang out here...

JetsGo is right, things have changed. SiteRelated is a good place to start.

WOW!, its nice to see some people I remember, three in a row!

Looks like I need to also start getting my rep back up, its fallen from like 40 to 17  Sad

I hope you have all been well, as for the sig, I used to have an app that auto placed it, but not anymore...

Maybe I will have to keep up with my traditions...

Aaron J Nicoli FTW!

I rarely see the homepage. All relevant forums are bookmarked (1. general list 2. "my starred topics) and for these "classic" has been selected as layout set. So there is only minimal optical change compared to several months ago.

Posting policies (and enforcement of them) indeed have changed ...

Welcome Back!

I too couldn't avoid the charm of A.net..I joined back in 2000 and had to delete my account because I was spending way too much time on here and not paying enough attention to my school work!

Even then I still visited the site every day..Even though we're dysfunctional, there are some really interesting perspectives on here and some really smart people...And of course the PLANES!

Yeh I have still kept pretty current I guess, probably once each week or two I would get on and check out all the pics.

But hey the people I meet here over the years have been some of the inspiration behind my love for aviation.

Why not just avoid the site when there are other matters of priority.

It's surprising there is actually not that much space in a 752 bay, well I mean in comparison to some other jets of similar length, thus the pencil jet.

The B752 Freighters can hold 88x125 sized pallet/containers.On the B752SF it can hold 14 [88x125] + 1 [88x88] container/pallet.
The B752PCF can hold 15 [88x125] container/pallet.

What is the spec of a 763F, I imagine quite a lot more but perhaps different pallets?

WOW!

It's basically exactly the same, is it because of a lot of wasted space?
