That sounds like my luck, CNN does a thing on the site and we've been down for the last two days due to name server problems. Oh well...

Could you give me some more info about this please. What was the name of the show? When was it aired? What exactly was said?

Anyone else saw this?

Thanks,
Johan

Johan,

It sounds like it was on CNN Headline News. Every hour (I think), they show a "What's Online" segment where they showcase one particular website. It repeats itself, so I'm betting it will be on several more times this evening. Not sure if you'll get it in Sweden though.

Yes....I happened to spy that spot too. It was on CNN Headline News. A quick piece of less than a minute, but quite flattering to this site. The narrator of the spot speaks of the wealth of airliner information available at the site, and they showed on screen an image of the main page at Airliners.net, plus a couple of its pics full screen. Narrator also speaks of the wide range of airliner pictures on the site....."from civil airplanes to military helicopters". Also shown was an image of the recent poll regarding "your favorite Russian airliner". Very positive piece about Airliners.net.
Johan, you've definitely impressed CNN!!

Damn, I wish I had a VCR. Anyone got that on tape or even better, on mpeg file?

I'd love to add it to the Awards & Reviews section.

Thanks,
Johan
