I would consider the second photo to be the winner out of the four you listed!

Check my album entitled "Wash Me". It has all sorts of dirty planes! As far as airlines go, the ones that showed up in my searches were AF, IB, NW, and KLM Cityhopper. Here is a link to the album, and a pic of a very dirty and neglected DL 757-200:

I'm trying to open the upper picture [the DL one], but for some reason [which I don't know] I can't. Does anybody has the same problem?

Your problem is probably the same problem that I have with my computer every now and then, It becomes allergic to JPEGS, and won't show me anything but a blank white or black picture! You don't happen to have an HP like mine do you? Wink

Ah, I knew IB would show up! It almost always seems to be their A340's that are dirty. Strange.

The dirt on the stored planes in LIM makes me really depressed. Probably the worst kind of dirt I have seen on A.net. It's a coat of meaninglessness wrapping planes that deserves better. Sad

We should distinguish between planes that are flying and those that aren't.

By the way if you're going to post an a.net picture just type photoid:# around "<" ">" to make life easier for the rest of us.

If I make it to France, I'll remember this one.
We all know that AF is bad, but here's another repeat offender. Unfortunately no "XXX" pics on A.net, but I have a book with one that likes it dirty:

You know what's even better than a dirty plane? A renectly purchased used airliner. For example, remember when Western Airlines was baught by Delta, and Delta had all those silver planes with two-tone doors and a little "Delta" decal slapped on there. That was great.

And don't forget improper nosecones. United has some management problems when it comes to remembering to paint the nosecone with its respective plane.

A lot of good ones up there - thanks! Panama City used to be host to an infamous graveyard of old propliners in the 1980s, but judging from a lack of photos on A.net, it has since been cleaned up. And that Tu-134 in Lima has certainly earned her NATO code name, Crusty.

You can't count scrap/derelict/knackered aircraft. Surely this has to be limited to flyers? Any aircraft left for any length of time without attention is gonna be filthy in short order.

It's the flying ones that worry me - dirty plane, sloppy maintenance.
