Photos of landing surfaces

Just wondering what the rules are when it comes to the acceptance of photos of landing surfaces without any aircraft in it. I get that photos of airport runways are acceptable, but what about photos like this one? 6891217 Does it mean that photos of any empty helipad (on land or on a ship) may be ac...

It does, to a maximum of 40.
The more photos you have accepted in the database, the more you allowed to upload in the queue. Can't remember the exact numbers but I believe once you have 1000 photos accepted, then you will hit the maximum of 40.

Re: prescreen / editing advice - jeepregular

Since it's not blocking any part of the a/c it won't be rejected by the screeners for that reason.
The a/c is rather high in frame though (taking into account the tail), which may lead to a rejection.
