I just checked my mail for today and found my copy of Airliners. I started brousing through it. There are some nice stories this month.
This magazine has a column towards the back called "Flying the WEB" by Thomas Becher. Every month it passes on the best aviation sites on the net. This was his last column as he is apparently moving on to another job. But as I read through I got to the second last paragraph:
"Fortunately, there are some things the Web can't replace, such as pilots dedicated to safety and service. So, what's my all-time favorite commercial aviation site? It's www.airliners.net (not related to this magazine). I first wrote about this site when it was a simple page for amateur photographers sharing airplane shots from their latest spotting trips. Since then, it has evolved into a great on-line database with a world-class layout offering nearly 90,000 airliner images, several discussion forums, industry news, hundreds of links and much, much more. The competition of Web audiences is stiff, but this one site I found myself going to again and again."
Wouldn't you agree!?
Born to fly !
