A.net's Best Photo 2012

Mon Dec 10, 2012 9:06 pm

Hello fellow aviation nerds! It's almost time to round off 2012, and take a look at the planespotting this year. As most of you, and me love's to see good aviation pictures, I would love to see what picture on Airliners.net that's the best of 2012. Ofc the photo has to be photographed and uploaded in 2012.
And with the words "best photo", I mean in quality and motive! So, I guess I've to start.

For me it's really hard to chose, but after a long thinking, this is the best of 2012.

Thank you, and merry christmas!

Great shot indeed.

You might want to discourage people from posting their own images, although that always makes a nice thread too.

Ofc it's boring if people post their own pictures, even how good they're.

There ain't no way I can pick a single one, so here's a selection that I've added to my albums this year (a couple were uploaded in December 2011, but oh well):

Gotta recognize the Space Shuttle shooters:

Even went out of my way to email Mr. Gottwald to thank him for uploading it after screening it.
