2 Millionth A.net Photo!

Wed Oct 19, 2011 5:49 pm

So we're only a day or two away from this milestone - will A.net mark the occasion?

How would you like to see it celebrated?

At the time of writing this post, we're at photoid 1999529, so lucky number 2000000 will be added within the next 48 hours in all likelihood. Wilco is right that there are actually only 1,890,023 photos on the site due to deletions and other factors over the years, but it's still pretty cool that we're hitting this milestone and that some luck uploader will have photoid 2000000.

Ah sorry about that! Thanks Wilco, Lindy !!!

Didn't take into account deletions - should've realised that myself. After all, one of my all time favourites can't be found on the site anymore... an Ethiopian cargo tri-jet apparently taking off from the moon at night - stunning pic by Mattia Vichi that still sits on my desktop!

2 Millionth A.net Photo!

FYI -MyAviation passed that milestone some 56000+ pictures ago.
-granted, some of them are not Airliners.net quality, but some shots are quite unique..

The queue is long, but fortunately it isn't 110,000 long...  

Some time next year probably, at the current rate maybe before next summer.

Hehe. Vacation math Dana? I was going by the comment that the photo with ID 2,000,000 will be added in 48 hours. Given we just added 199715 that's only 285 away from the photo that will have the image number 2,000,000 (even though it won't BE image number 2,000,000).

Definitely won't be until next summer before 285 images are screened!

I'm the lucky one. I have photo ID number 2,000,000 on MyAviation.net. Usually I delete from MyAviation the ones that make it onto A-Net, but I just can't get myself to delete # 2,000,000.
