I Google(d) for airliner videos (just planes, flying pig, etc.), and this site showed up. I eventually joined First Class to see this and that which you can't, otherwise. Bought videos are STILL more interesting than Discovery Wings. By the way, at O'Hare, the end of Concourse F is a wonderful place to watch 3-4 active runways (RJ's and 747-400's landing on the same runway!). It is all windows and can get a little warm in the afternoon sunshine (AA and UA RJ's forever on the left). I laid over 3-4 hours each way on a trip and waited out the competition for the seats nearest the windows. I knew I was in the right place when a couple of geeky guys showed up with fancy camera gear. As I suspected, some of their pictures showed up here! -Jan in Iowa

Waaaaaay back in the summer of 2000, when I started working Operations for Spirit Airlines in TPA, I had daily access to the internet through the Fli - Fo system. I was poking around tying to fing airplane pics when a co-worker said "Do you ever check-out Airliners.net?" I said "Huh?" They punched it in for me and from that moment on I was an addict.

Well, that's hard! I'm reading posts and l watch at pictures here for like at least 2 years, but I joined this may. I do not have a visacard and my parent's would pay because "it is unsafe to pay through internet" (according to them)etc, but in May I finally convinced them Big grin! But I believe I also did a search at a search engine.

I was searching for photos of Raleigh/Durham and when I put it into yahoo.com the link came up. This was also a few years ago. I've had my photos on the site for the last two years and just became a member a couple of days ago.

I found this website about a couple of years ago from web search... and i said to myself... how boring and look at all the geeks in their A Vs B groupies...

but then came along the A380 photos and its drama... the interest in the 7E7 revolution, USA vs the world politics... and wow, this forum is actually very interesting... Sometimes for a laugh, sometimes for duhhhhhhhhhhhh, and a lot of times to read my fellow world citizens interesting points...

But I ended joining recently and sharing my love of aviation and of course an opinion or two... my friends get annoyed when I point out different makes and models... I guess I turn to kid again at the airport.. always reminisce of flying TAP's L1011's to Lisbon when I was a young one... ahhhh...

I found it one day when I was doing a search for Northeast Airlines last fall; just to see what if anything would come up. One of the various web-sites had a link to the A.net photo database. I checked out some other photos and started reading the civil aviation forums.

After several months of almost finding myself ready to jump out with a comment or a question on a particular post, I decided to join about 2 months ago.

The rest is history.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

As for the forums, it was last year when they started to show the hedlines on the home page. After after many times reading them, I decided to finally join on march.

Back in the early days of Flight Simulator FS95 I was trying to find addon planes. I tried typing in relevant websites, that's how I found Flightsim.com and then came to airliners.net in my search for civil airliner addons.

My first time on the internet back in 1997 at work. Typed in airliner photos and found the website. I first looked at the photos of Piedmont YS-11s. There
were 20,000 photos by that time I believe.

My first awareness of a.net occurred when a work colleague who has been a good friend since our first day on the job sent me an airliners.net photo early in the year 2001, of an airliner in service for our employer. At first, my interest was limited to the photos only -- there were "nearly 100,000" photos in the data base at that time. Several months later I discovered the discussion forums and registered to participate.

Hmm.... Seems like I've been here for quite a long time...
I found it at the end of 1996. We had just gotten free internet at the university, and since I only just became interested in aviation , I started browsing the internet for pictures of... yes, the IL76!  Smile
Found a lot of small badly scanned shots, and I remember Jay Selman had a lot of his shots scattered all over the internet. Then, via a search engine I eventually bumped into Airliners.net. After I figured out how to scan prints, I started uploading in 1997.
Here's my first shot:

It says "uploaded on november 30th 1998", but that's only the date on which A.net started counting the hits. All old A.net shots are uploaded on nov 30th 1998.  Smile
Wow! Has Airliners.net grown since then...  Smile
