The Most Phototgraphed Aircraft On Airliners.net?

Sun May 27, 2001 3:38 pm

With nothing better to do on a boring, rainy Sunday afternoon, I thought to myself, what aircraft has the most individual photos on Airliners.net?

So after two hours, and lots of searching these are the numbers I have arrvied at. I have based my search on the premise that the special colour schemes would more than likely have the most uploads. Some interesting results

1. Wunala Dreaming (VH-OJB) 169
2. Same Team Same Dream (B-HOX) 149
3. Tropical (9V-SPK) 127
4. Nalanji Dreaming (VH-EBU) 118
5. Ansett B747-400 Sydney 2000 (VH-ANA) 111
6. Formula 1 (VH-OJC) 110
7. ANA Pokemon (JA8962) 108
8. Thai Royal Barge (HS-TGO) 86
9. Tropical (9V-SPL) 85
10. Delta B757 (N6701) 74
11. SQ 1000th B747-400 (9V-SMU) 72
12. LH Star Alliance A340 (D-AIBA) 66
13. SOHK CX (B-HIB) 64
14. SQ 50th anniversary (9V-SMZ) 59
15. Varig MD11 World Cup (PP-VPP) 50

Other mentions:
Peter Max: 36
UA Star Alliance 30
SA B743 Olympic ZS-SAJ 26
Phoenix Suns B757 48

I'm sure that there are plenty of others, but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head.

So seems as though the Aussies have top spots in terms of popular colour schemes. I think that they are great schemes but to me the result here is clearly affected by two things:

1) Photographers who upload more than others (Frank, Glenn and Craig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) means that these aircraft will naturally get more individual photos.

2) The "global" patterns of the aircraft. The more places that they go to, the more chances that they will be photographed and consequently uploaded.

Have I forgetten any particular aircraft? Let's see if we can find one with even more photos!

Andy,

One for your 'others', The HARS Connie VH-EAG has 86 photos here. Your point 2) doesn't come into it for this aircraft.

Great research, Andrew!

I have to plead "guilty" for having ten out of the top 15 uploaded here... and sometimes more than one (esp. no. 12)...

Some new popular uploads:

The two 747SP-38's

VH-EAA = 90
VH-EAB = 95

Plus there are some which are definately one or the other planes, but cannot be pinned down to be one or the other.

Not bad for two planes that have never had a special livery applied to them in their entire lives!

Interestingly, even though they are the most featured aircraft, they still get a lot of views per individual photo. Aircraft from this list are among my top viewed list:

my #5: (well for 9V-SPK it might be more tragic reasons)

Did you have similar "success" with these? I would assume yes.

Konstantin,

Nope, sorry. It might be a feature of the advanced search section in the future though.

No problem, Johan. Maybe better, otherwise the stats freaks like me would come up with even crazier researches...

So does that mean Australians are bored and have more time on their hands?
