For the aircraft that is the focus of your photograph, choose the Aircraft Manufacturer, Generic Type, and Version from these three dropdown menus.\nThe menus are connected (sequentially-dependent), so you must first choose the Aircraft Manufacturer from the first menu; this then allows you to choose the Generic Type from the second menu, which in turn allows you to proceed to choose the Version from the third menu.
When the manufacturer is not listed in the dropdown menu, choose \"Other\" and type the manufacturer in the Non-listed manufacturer field, the generic aircraft type in the Non-listed generic type field, and the version in the Non-listed version field.
When the manufacturer is listed, but you cannot find the generic aircraft type in its dropdown menu : choose \"Other\" and fill in the generic aircraft type in the Non-listed generic type field, and the version in the Non-listed version field.
When the manufacturer and generic type are listed, but you cannot find the version in its dropdown menu : choose \"Other\" and type the version in the Non-listed version field.
When you have chosen \"Other\" in one of the dropdown menus, and you have clicked (after filling in the other fields) on the \"Submit info and upload the photo\" button to arrive at the second upload page, check very carefully if the aircraft type appears correctly. When not, adjust the entry there.
If there is more than one aircraft in the photo, list the data for the aircraft you wish to be the focus of the photo. Only list one aircraft! Other aircraft should be mentioned in the Remark field.
In the Photo Index search pages the aircraft will be listed by their generic type. By choosing the V for version there, the aircraft will be listed by versions within the generic type.
When you are not sure about a generic type or version, choose in the dropdown menu the entry with the dots. An example : Ilyushin Il-62 is a designation used as a generic type for all versions of the Il-62, but the first version built is also designated just Il-62, without suffix. To make a clear distinction between the generic type and the version, when you don't know the version, choose \"Il-62...\", when you know it is the first version without suffix, choose \"Il-62\". Please adhere to this to make the supplied information reliable.
The aircraft types have to be filled in twice, as generic (or basic) type, and as version. The aircraft type as generic type is the entry that will appear in the Photo Index (e.g. Boeing 747-400), the aircraft type as version is the entry that will appear in the caption of your photo, and will also appear when you select the V = version in the Photo Index (e.g. Boeing 747-436). In the Photo Index search pages you can select to see the photos of all Boeing 747-400s together by the push of one button. When you want to see them by version, you select the V, and they will appear split by version. When you don't know the version, use three dots in the version designation (e.g. Boeing 747-4... ).
NOTE : Not all aircraft types have yet been overhauled, so for several entries the generic type is still the same as the version for the time being. You can amend this where necessary.
Please let me know if there's anything we can further improve.
