Re: 777-9 has no red beacon light on top of fuselage.

Why would they convert the beacon light to LED? LEDs are essentially maintenance free, and may last the whole useful life of the aircraft? best regards Thomas I thought LEDs were pretty much maintenance-free too, but the large number of cars I have seen with failed LED light clusters has made me re...

Security Questions

Apologies if this is in the wrong area of the site. I'm interested in views on the level of security for flights recently. On my last two flights I have experienced what I think are major lapses on security, but others may view these as minor. The first was when travelling with my wife to Madeira fr...

Re: Photo bug

I'm amazed that there haven't been more posts on this issue - perhaps it's only a local problem? I (in the UK) can only view certain photos on the site in general now, so it's not just mine that are failing to display.

Re: Photo bug

I am unable to upload any photos or see any of the photos in my 'corner' today, whether in screening, rejected or accepted. In all cases I see only a blue window with the AN logo. I don't think it's an issue here as all my other on-line stuff is OK.

Re: 'Newbie' - Basic Quality Comparison Question

I will try going that small but it will destroy a lot of quality and therefore inevitably introduce different rejection criteria. I still maintain that, if I look at two photos that fill 80% of my screen, the quality should be obviously comparable.
Thanks again for the thoughts.

Re: 'Newbie' - Basic Quality Comparison Question

Agreed, but, assuming the average upload size is around 1700px, then my similar-sized ones should appear very similar when viewed at a similar frame size on my screen. My point was that they don't seem to and that claims of blurriness and/or softness in my shots don't seem right from my viewings. I ...

OK - the reverse also holds true - the aim for comparison purposes is to get similar-sized photo frames on my screen. If I am not to zoom in on an A.net shot, then I can zoom out of my shots to make them as small as the A.net shots appear, which increases my shots' apparent sharpness and clarity to ...
