When I first saw the video I thought it was an <acronym title="SATA Air Azores (Portugal)">SP</acronym> too, but it turns out the aspect ratio of the video was affected and gave it that effect.

I saw a video on LiveLeak of men shooting at an airliner and had to investigate this. Of course, where better to do aircraft photo research these days than airliners.net? Turns out it is an Iranian Air Force 747-100 bringing aid of some sort to Syria. Before I knew one of Iran's 747s had it, I notic...Jump to post
Thank you very much for posting that. This all takes me back to when Paulo Emanuele passed away some years ago.

Thanks guys. This is something that we are pushing, and we've spoken to a few major media outlets about the topic already. We will also be approaching PANYNJ about it to see what can come of this. Again, even if they officially ban photography on airport property, at least there is that guidance for...Jump to post

Cory, I'd love to help you out. I have a few friends who have worked on a few elaborate shooting situations that may also be able to come up with a solution for you hopefully. Please shoot me an email, phil at nycaviation dot com.

Thanks guys. soon7x7, gizmodo is a sizable tech website. You should pursue them and I expect that they will actually do the right thing by you.

This is an article I wrote about copyright infringement in our hobby.

You guys seem to be talking about the AA hangars, which have nothing to do with the hangars affected by the CTB rebuild.Jump to post
Here are photos of landing... http://nycaviation.com/2012/02/photo...lufthansa-makes-its-maiden-flight/
The -8i looks photoshopped, like it was just stretched haha.
LGA was built before airport security limited people without boarding passes, and it's been difficult post-9/11 to build shop beyond security.
Those hangars are actually United hangars. The AA hangars on the west side seem to be unaffected.

I don't stand to represent anyone, but I don't think anyone that was "involved" meant anything negative towards the shooter. You're good people, Nate, but we shouldn't put words in anyone's mouths.

Quite simple, really. All you have to do is wait until after your flight is over, make it so that you're literally one of the last passengers off the plane, and ask someone up front (flight attendant, pilot) if you can take a photo in the cockpit. Sometimes they say yes, sometimes they say no. That'...Jump to post
