Not Documented On A.net

Tue Feb 28, 2012 12:52 am

Hi  

G4 was at MCO for about a year, yet there are no pics on a.net

F9 was briefly at PIE.....no pics on a.net....though I have one, not sure if its good enough.

Edelweiss was briefly at MCO....yet no documentation.....probably because it was a night flight

What other services or special visits are not documented on this site?

This is excluding myav.

Granted, there weren"t as many of us back in the 60's and 70s, so lets just limit it to 2000 or later. Otherwise, this list would be tooooooo long. 

I'm guessing there's not too much missed at UK airports, HAHA   
I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?

No one seems to have any pictures of Air Canada's brief service to SNA in the database. I photographed them once, but I lost the RAW and the file I have is from a dark, cloudy day so it'd be a hard sell for this website. WestJet has taken their place, but they arrive at high noon and the light is terrible! So no database photos of them at SNA either, as far as I'm aware. You could be the first!

It think there are thousands of interessting visits to airports around the world which are not listed here. And if you include interesting things or combinations or situations this list wil never ends!
Thanks to all ONE-Star voters just to push a photograph down!!!

There are some (admittedly rare) aircraft types that remain undocumented on Anet, as well. The first ones that come to mind are the Pilatus Twin Porter and the Helio Twin Courier. And the Schweizer RG-8 and RU-38.

Like I said, rare types...but someone could be the very first to capture them.

Rare types and rare visits are understandable. But the OP is talking about scheduled service.

There are no photos of operational Chinese SH-5 flying boats in the database. I have one, admittedly of poor quality, but the screeners wouldn't have it.

As to airlines not being represented at a specific airport in the database... duh, there must be thousands of cases, even with scheduled services.

It is explicitly stated that a plane being rare at an airport doesn't mean it's screened as "rare".

From the rejection guide:
"Rare aircraft and new registrations will also be screened with more leniency. We understand that the term rare is subjective. By rare we mean individual aircraft (new registrations). We do not mean the first visit of an aircraft to an airport, for example the first A380 visit to Amsterdam."

However, this is something I don't fully agree with. Shots of planes that are rare at a certain airport, or have contributed to the history of that airport by having had a scheduled service no doubt have additional documentational value. Of course this doesn't mean anything should be accepted, just because of the documentational value. But I think it would be understandable that, say a shot of an AF A380 shot in LUX as a diversion from CDG, would be screened with more leeway than an AF A380 shot at CDG. The people in LUX would remember such an event for a long long time, and it would be a shame that a shot that's a bit on the soft side would be rejected just because an AF A380 isn't rare at all.

And I think the shame should go for scheduled services. In my opinion, the documentational value should grant looser screening. And again, that doesn't mean anything should be acceptible just because of some documentational value.

just my 2 cents

People might get a little too creative if the location was a consideration for the screeners.

Korean Air Cargo's new T7, HL8251, is mainly documented at the factory and on testflights, but to catch her in service, -it has mainly seviced VIE, OSL and LHR, -you have to go to MyAviation.
-Where were all the good European A.net photographers?

....and to get more of T.K. Dahl's photos of the OSL visit, go here
you will also see a photo from an extremely rare event -namely two T7s at the same time.

I've shot WestJet at SNA 2 or 3 times and uploaded them but they were rejected. Haven't gotten around to other edits yet. I saw the AC jet landing once but it was after dark so no good pictures for that one. But there are pictures of WestJet at SNA by me and others on other notable aviation websites if you're specifically looking for that airline at SNA.

I've photographed them at SNA twice myself- just commenting on one reason why they might not have made the database yet.

The LHR service only started about 3 weeks ago, is once a week, on a weekday when most people are at work, and arrives late afternoon when the light is fading (or already gone) at this time of year. Plus the UK weather has not played ball yet!

In regards to the MCO service...

It is a non-friendly spotter airport. Its not like LAX, IAH, PHX, or other where spotters are the norm and accepted. I have heard nothing good come from MCO from spotters. That probably has to do with why no one has any shots
