RE: Nalanji "Baddouble" Help

It depends on the screener... there are one or two who will let cirtain aspects slip but then others who will reject for the slightest thing... The haze in that picture is visible on the wings and engine... For most screeners thats enough to reject... Good picture though possibly one for the persona...

RE: Nalanji "Baddouble" Help

I think bad double was a bad rejection however, the heat distortion in that photo has killed it dead and it isnt level...

Excellent composition, just I dont think the conditions were right...

Possibly the wrong boxes ticked by the screener they are only human...right?

It is to reduce weight...

Do you know how much paint weighs... a TON! litteraly... And who is actually going to see it? no one on the approach cos they are below the wings and anyone on the aeroplane already knows about the airline they are flying on.
