Getting Passed In The Fast Lane...

Tue May 04, 2010 2:21 am

This is an amazing feat..I have rarely seen this happen... A picture overtakes a top picture (which also happens to be the PC picture)!

This 747 SP image climbed up the ladder and then knocked off the EXISTING top picture which had been sitting in the spot for a great part of the day (hence had a significant lead)....AND to cap it off, the image of the SU-24 was also PC choice image hence attracting even more views...

Quite an achievement since the picture hits just zoom away once it reaches the top five.

I'm glad someone else was able to dig up a photo of that and share it here since the site said no to mine cuz of the double rejection. That moment definitely deserves to be shared here for all to see. It was an amazing thing to see. Thanks to Mike for uploading it!
