yeah sometimes when you get into the homepage of airliners.net... the title of the page... says

-Airliners.net serving both hvn and hel
and the other times it says

ok... well now it says...
AIRLINERS.NET - A breath of Fresht Jet Blast....???

i thought the phrase of this site was ...
the wings of the web?????

i am guessing someone is hacking into this site?

Yes, I see what you mean, Ell. Now, for example, it's "Airliners.net... the centre of commerical aviation"
"Everyone writing for the Telegraph knows that the way to grab eyeballs is with Ryanair and/or sex."

Actually, that is a good idea that Johan had. It is great to have a few slogans instead of one.

yeah i know see that he has a few slogans instead of one... it is just that slogan that was a little confusing. i think he might just be playing with the airport codes to confuse us into thinking them of something else...!
hvn - heaven [i thought]
hel - hell

OK PEOPLE, for you folks who haven't been here for very long, this is what's going on:

Awhile back, Johan asked users to suggest mottos for the site. There were several really clever suggestions. Johan picked a few of these and is alternating using them. The "HVN and HEL" slogan is indeed a play on airport codes. HVN is New Haven, Connecticut, and HEL is Helsinki, Finland.
