Categories listed were: COCKPIT,DARK,PRIVATE,PROP. Is one of those incorrect or did I leave out something?

Thanks,

COCKPIT should be replaced with WINDOW_VIEW although it may have been taken from the flight deck, none of the flight deck is visible so WINDOW_VIEW is more appropriate.

Why cockpit view? I would go with window view.  Wink

I can't view it now, but doesn't the "Help" for the cockpit category say something like "includes views through the cockpit windows"?

OK, I had a chance to look it up and the Cockpit "Read Me" says:
"Mark this box if the photo is taken inside the cockpit (flight deck). That includes photos taken through the cockpit windows."

The Window View help says, "A shot from inside the aircraft cabin through the window."

Is it possible that "photos taken through the cockpit windows" is intended to mean from the outside looking in? If so, I think it would be clearer to say "if the photo is of the cockpit (flight deck)" and if the word "cabin" were dropped from the Window View help: "A shot from inside the aircraft through the window."
