The cause of the above issue is related to a potential fix regarding the appeal E-mails to the screeners (we receive an overview of the appeal results to calibrate our screening). The update was rolled back some 2 - 2,5 hours, so in theory people should be receiving screening E-mails again. If anyon...

I've been working on creating a logo similar to the old one (747 with A.net titles). A colleague screener came up with 'impact' as being the font, which does match quite well I think.

Hi Andrew,

#2: underexposed, needs a tighter crop. Poor light angle.
#3: blurry, low contrast, poor light.
#4: underexposed (way too backlit, unfixable by default).

This was my doing. Evan (the above poster) is pretty much spot on. With a code on the aircraft (#5 and #6), it is very easy to figure out the ID numbers based on the database or Google. As for low contrast, it looks like too much lifting of the shadows was used in post-processing. Ading more shadows...
