Even if I did have AOL (or multiple accounts, which I don't) I would not sink that low (though getting AOL would come close, I know).Jump to post
Those "no-call" lists don't work. It's the same as with Spam opt-out lists, all it does is tell them there is someone on the other side. Caller-ID boxes are no good either, unless you note down the number and they call again using the same line (usually they don't, they have lots of lines and change...Jump to post
Finally someone else who hates that event <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> I think Israel was originally taken into the EBU to piss of the Arabs as punishment for the wars of agression they mounted against Israel (and maybe a bit to piss of France, as they hated Israel a...Jump to post
As to film, I use only Fuji Superia 400 and (in low-light) Fuji Press Pro 800. These films have grain better than the 200 and 400 Kodak Gold respectively, and are the same price or cheaper. The colourbalance is also better. Kodak Royal Gold is not that good a film (though marginally better grain tha...Jump to post
How it was taken (some speculation, plus having talked to someone who lives near the place): There is a road running perpendicular to the runway that the aircraft just crossed on finals. Anyone can go stand there and take some pictures (airport security might come and chase you do so, though). The a...Jump to post
AFAIK work on the 7x7 also started before plans for the A330 were published. If Boeing had prior knowledge they would have been stupid to make it that obvious. The large twin was just a thing waiting to happen and on both sides similar ideas were drawn up at around the same time. Boeing made a bette...Jump to post
What people (and especially the unions) seem to forget is "what can the company afford to pay". If the Comair shareholders fold the company, they are fully within their rights to do so. Currently the strike by Comair pilots is threatening not just the jobs of their fellow Comair personell (all 4000+...Jump to post
Tu-144s did indeed fly passenger service. I believe 20 flights were made, during which time 2 or 3 aircraft went down. At that point even Kruchev had to admit the aircraft was not fit for service.
It soldiered on some time carrying cargo, but that too soon ended.
I have some shots of Iberia 757s on Amsterdam Schiphol, if that's long enough <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> More on the way that were made this weekend. So far I have not digitised them, as I'm still trying to get the scanner to do what I want it to (i.e. not put a bl...Jump to post
Not quite sure of the year, probably 1975/76 Airline: Tarom Aircraft: Il-18 Departure: Amsterdam Schiphol Destination: Constanza Roemania Don't remember a lot, was only 4 or 5 years old <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> On the return trip the entire aircraft was quarantin...Jump to post
Those models are quite expensive for them to buy. Most likely there are very strict guidelines as to to who and on what occasion they may be handed out.
Safety cards are cheap, especially as they are replaced quite often (and there are thus usually old ones waiting destruction, and loads of spares)
As stated, getting the organisation in place might make the whole idea economically unfeasible. Especially accounting for hundreds of people would be expensive. A customer would pay a.net, who would then have to find out who took the photograph (not that hard). The hard part is keeping track of who ...Jump to post
Been to Atlanta once, on a stopover between AMS and LAX. Nice airport, friendly staff (quite a difference from AMS in that respect). Overall, nice country to visit, but wouldn't want to live there permanently (at least not the places I visited, except possibly the national parks <img src="/dis...Jump to post
I've been using Fuji for over a decade now, and I'm not looking back. Colour balance is very good, though some call it a bit cool. Extremely fine grain, say half that of Kodak or Agfa. I have made the 400 (Superia currently) my stock film, the grain is comparable to the 200 Kodak Gold. Kodak Royal G...Jump to post
