I hear you. I know WG-YQT had some great shots of the airplanes in the hangar before they were ready. He asked someone how to get them on the website but no one responded. Come on folks, let him know how! Also Rootsboy was taking pics in Calgary and he wanted to post them too.

Has it been that long? A full couple of days, and there are still no pictures to show?. My god...what is the world coming to? In todays world of instant gratification, anything less than having a picture of the plane even before it actually exists is simply unacceptable.

And a couple of days have gone by. I offer you my humblest of condolences....

Just like all of you choosing to skip minor events (such as your mothers funeral) because you just HAD to have a picture of that new Southwest livery 737-700.

Like it couldn't wait a day or two.

I haven't even SEEN one yet. And you know what? I'm not in any hurry to because I know that in a couple of years, LAS, LAX, ONT, SJC et. al. are going to be so swarmed with them, I won't even be able to take that many pictures.

In the meantime, if one happens to present itself with a good photo op, great. If not, who cares?

I'm sure this Roots Air will be the same way. You're going to get sick of seeing them.

Chill out dude.

MattD, for someone respected by so many on this site why are you being so condesending? Maybe it's not important to you, but there are a lot of people who are waiting to see the pics posted and I don't see the harm in that. Already chillin in T.O.! so much in fact that I'm freezing! Teej13, I'll try to send you the pics via e-mail. Regards.

Hey All

I uploaded eight pics over a week a go now, and have not heard back from the admin. I know it usually takes up to a week or more for them to go through all the pics they receive and then okay them to go on line. As soon as I get the response from admin that they have been apporved I will post them.

Today I was at rwy 05 at YYZ. I saw another two Roots air. My first two were on Monday and today I saw the new A320. It looks really good. Its pretty sad with all of the technology that we can't get a few pics up. Oh well, I have seen the planes, I'm happy. I feel for the ones that anticipated this new airline and they have not even got a glimpse. Come to YYZ around 5pm each day, then you can get the 8 second view of each and its over.

I can't wait untill the pics are here too,

Drive it like you stole it!

Thanks a ton for your concerns. MattD., thanks fer coming out. One of the reasons I enjoy this site is the abilty to see a decent shot of something that interests me before that crappy shots that show up in the local papers.
My email addy is 7tjah@qlink.queensu.ca ... yeah - I'm a Queen's kid. That being said, I'm doing my senior Economics thesis on the consolidation in the airline industry, so I'm just a bit of an information sponge right now.

There is a way to display your submitted photos even if they haven't yet been accepted yet. You would need to put in a link such as the following:


Just replace filename.jpg with the actual name of the photo that you submitted and people should be able to access the photo even though it is still pending review.
