Indeed, Andy, my 1st picture (2.5 years ago) got more than 1,000 hits. I am also proud to be now part of the same very closed clubs you are in. (I let you guess which).

Anyway, since apparently (and contrary to what you, Andy, earlier) it is no longer allowedto self gloss for one's 1000th picture, here's my acknowledgement :

I really wish to thank a lot of people here for that picture. The screeners, first, for taking all the time necessary to go through 1000 pictures (even over 2 years, I guess it represents a lot of time), for patiently explaining me what was wrong in the pictures they rejected, making me adopt higher standards for myself ( I can honestly say that my photo skills have improved a lot over those years).

I also want to thank fellow Elbonian spotter Will Ronciere, with whom I enjoy a friendly rivalry (hey hey, be careful for the pictures I will shoot in DUB this WE. Will !! )

I wish to thank all the people in this forum for the friendly help they gave me, and are giving me (please, help me on the other thread), all the A.net photographers I have met at various airport and A.net meetings.

Oh, and here I am, taking off in the aircraft that helped me take so many pictures. (A special 1600x1200 upload to celebrate my 1000th picture - thank you for that, William).

All in all, thank you A.net .

I always wonder two things, first, How do you do to Ride the plane, and shoot at the same time?? Big grin , and second, What I have to do to have a ride in the jumpseat nowadays!!!!!!

I'm still trying how to see if my picture is sharp or clear enough to be accepted here! (well, I have 3!!), so still a long way to the thousand!

Bye!
Miquel.

Congrats Antoine, after several weeks in the "left for johan" Q your shot finally made it  Big grin And it is a beautiful one!

Was a pleasure for me to meet you in person at INN and at GVA! Was lots of fun for sure!

Trim that thingy, it will fly without you on the controls for quite some time  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

" What I have to do to have a ride in the jumpseat nowadays "

It's all about who you know... go out and make some connections  Big grin


Cheers,

Thanks Florian. It was a special shot for me as it linked several aspect of my aviation life : shooting, flying, CMF, a place I am about to leave. Plus, I really like this picture !

Indeed, nothing beets a shooting session under the rain !

Well, that is true, but I prefer the "can you hold the stick for a moment ?" asked to the person in the right seat (always nicer to have a PAX)

Congrats to the flying Elbonian!

Thank you. I find it very difficult actually to get such shots, esp. approach/finals. Having a good enough depth field while a short enough shutter release time (remember, moving very fast) is very difficult. Those two shots you plugged  Smile/happy/getting dizzy were some of the better I ever got, details inside and outside (the photoshoping session was a pain for the latter, but it was well worth it).

What I have to do to have a ride in the jumpseat nowadays!!!!!!

Frankly, ask the captain. 3 years ago, I did not know there was such a thing as a jumpseat.
2 years ago, I knew that I would never get one (thx to 9/11), then last year, I just asked the captain of my flight, who said yes. Since then, I always ask (while on a European aircraft - avoid asking while on an US one). Incidently, the captain who granted me my first js was Spanish, flying for Air Nostrum  Big thumbs up.

Oh, and being a private pilot helps a lot !

cheers,
