Re: Blatant hit pumping - how can it be stopped?

I am not here for a lesson in photography Daniel. If it was there would be different title to this thread. Royal started this topic because there was some blatant abuse of views.

Re: Blatant hit pumping - how can it be stopped?

I agree with Royal. If you look at the photos of this person in question. There are large amounts of views for airframes that are very common. It is quite obvious that his views are artificially inflated. How did the conversation turn from photos taken in poor light ? It is about inflated views ! qu...

If anyone wants to know why there were 2 Condor 767s here today. The one last night was late in arriving. It also had a no flaps landing hence all the ARFF vehicles greeted it upon arrival. The crew timed out and it never left.
