Why So Popular?

Wed Jul 20, 2005 6:10 am

I have had this pic accepted for less than a week. It had less than 200 hits. All of a sudden it has 3000 hits. I dont know why? I am not looking for any plugs, so dont hit on it if you dont want to. I just want to know what made this so popular.

I would gather its been linked to another site.

I had a small GA aircraft who hits went up from 100 to 750 in one day for this same reason....

To be honest, I doub't that Aerotransport will generate all of those hits by itself. People would have to type in the registration manually, I doubt 2800 people typed in that exact reg!

Maybe it has something to do with the date which doesn't exist - 31st June  Smile

Holy smoke 31 June, I most of scrolled too far. Time for an edit. Thanks for the info. It still doesnt explain the hits.

It's the best damned, and sweetest looking airplane built. That's why I hit it.
I never get tired of looking at 752s.

I think accuracy is the magic word - both the photographer and the pilots (look how straight the nose gear is on yellow line)
