Two times my luggage was lost:
1) When I flew from Basle via Geneva and Lisbon to the Acores. Got my stuff one day later.
2) From Graz to Zurich, non of the passenger received the luggage, as the aircraft simply got forgot to be loaded. Also one day later I had my stuff.

My acceptance ratio was about 40 to 50%, then I changed all photos to "for sale", and so my acceptance ratio miracly rose to 90%...
After having removed the "photo for sale" option again, it's sank back to the poor ratio I had before. Interesting co-incidence, isn't' it? (...)
I've always tried to keep my anger out of the forums. But now I'm fed up. How can it happen that a photo is rejected because of bad double, but the photo which it was related to was not accepted because it was a little blurry? So it was bad double to a rejected photo! And both were new entries to th...Jump to post

Hello Johan and screeners, I don't know if I missed to read some rule or something else. I uploaded a photo which had two guys in the foreground, on purpose because I wanted to show how close people could get to the runway. One guy was recognizable and this guy gave me permission to publish this pho...Jump to post
Recently I appealed because I didn't understand a rejection. Then I got a confirmation for the appeal. But when I check the photo-stats there's no photo in the appealing queue. Why not? Have I missed any announcement that there's no more appealing possible? Or have I been banned from this appealing ...Jump to post
Maybe anybody has an explanation. I have a photo here at a.net of a B747 with about 1400 hits (counter). Exactly the same photo I have uploaded (at the same time) on an other aviation website (which has almost 50'000 photos) but there this photo has only 170 hits! In the other hand I have a photo at...Jump to post
On this site there's one of my photos. But after I had received so many E-mails from web-designers (of non-commercial (FS)-sites) I have lost the overview who I gave permission for which photo.
This site looks ok to me and the photo is small and the copyright with the name is also still on it.

Some years ago I went to Darwin Airport for one week for work experience. It really was an experience of a life time, one day at approach control and 4 days in the tower. What I remember most was a near collision between a landing Garuda A300 and a by-flying US Marines F-18 (was in the local news th...Jump to post

I landed in an Airbus A310 at Zanzibar (ZNZ), Tanzania. The airport is very small, but I don't know the length of the runway. Another one was with an Airbus A330 at Holguin (HOG), Cuba.

I only one time wrote a letter to the airline to say thanks for the excellent flight, and 4 days later a lady of the airline rang me up (although I never wrote the phone number in the letter!) to thank for the letter.

I have just discovered that if you look at the photo in Medium Size, it almost looks like a "C", but if you look at it in the Large Size, you can recognize the full ring, the "O".
probably it is an illusion. If not, than it's a BIG Error of the painters I guess.
Recently I have uploaded a photo of a Eurocypria A320, taking off at Zurich. When I took this photo I didn't realize that, but when uploading, I saw that under the wing there's a different registration than on the tail! Can this be an error of the paintwork? Or dirt, oil or something optical? The ai...Jump to post
Usually I don't mind turbulences. But one time the turbulences were so strong and they took so long (nearly 3 hours, heavy), I got a bit worried then. During these 3 hours there was no service, everybody had the seatbelts on. It was dark outside and I watched the wingtip light going up and down, and...Jump to post
