This is a slight aside, so I don't mean to stray too much from aviation in this thread.
I second those who say that I hope the photographers were paid. Time makes a lot of money, and can certainly afford it; if these pictures weren't available either from Airliners or a stock house, they would be paying someone like Boeing to use their files, or hiring someone to go out and get shots (appr. cost for one day's shoot- about $700-900 dollars).
But I disagree with having to pay for pictures here. We are not reusing them commercially for our own profit, merely enjoying them as end-users.
So many more things have charges on them on the net than before. I would be sad if we had to pay for access to all these great pictures. It would undermine our community.
It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.
