Hmm - seems to me there is nothing to indicate this shot is from A.net - could have been shot by anyone, anytime. Guess what ... A.net is not the only source of aviation pics. It could even have come from (gasp) the "other" place.
Or just possibly it is a legitimate pic from their own library.
The problem with a thread like this is that before you know it, it will become "common knowledge" that the Sun ripped off A.net. (note how Lee suggests a possibility of a rip off, but Anders has them condemned).
This sure ain't gonna help with any potential negotiation for use of a pic, and builds up a confrontational situation in which no one wins (we've discussed this often enough in relation to security).
IMHO, its useful for us to keep an eye out for infringements, but lets have something which indicates that it has been taken from the site. Otherwise you might as well post every airliner appearing in any newspaper in the world - chances are there is something similar on A.net.
