Why Johan Won't Post Photo On Website... Guess.

Sat Sep 07, 2002 10:56 am

My Guess is:

Just look at all the people who hate him. He is a good guy for making and keeping this site up, but then people from a childish kiddie site like to bash him any way they can. I am guessing that he has not posted his photo because there are certain whiners who go to the parody site and b**** about him, and he may fear that if he posts his photo. This Mob of immaturity on the parody site will go after him. Remember, This is purely guess, and if Johan wishes to delete this post, I will have no problem as this is only my theory and he may delete this post if he wants., but I do not blame him for not posting his photo. He is keeping it off the site for his protection.

Just my 2 cents.

I think you already have the best guess...
Or to put it simply... he doesn't want to.

And not just protection from kiddos who would deface the photo.
Someone more serious might just decide to use it in order to identify him for some shooting or kidnapping, as the location where Johan holds out is pretty well defined...

In additon to what Jwenting said, I wouldn't be surprised if Johan Lundgren isn't his real name either.

I've heard that 'Johan Lundgren' is a very common and ordinary name in Sweden, like 'John Smith' or something in English. That would a good way to further enhance privacy, I guess.

Ryu2, if that's the case, we'd all look pretty stupid thinking some guy named John Smith (Johan Lundgren) actually ran the site, lol  Laugh out loud

"In additon to what Jwenting said, I wouldn't be surprised if Johan Lundgren isn't his real name either."

I agree!

I did some searching on Google and if you use the combination of the words university, lulea and lundgren, and google cannot find any "Johan Lundgren" at the university!!! (Which is amazing, isn't it?)

The nr. 1 hit for google is about Urban Lundgren, a student at the Computer Science and
Electrical Engineering department of the Lulea University.

If you read this webpage, you read that this guy published several articles in cooperation with Johan Carlson, a senior lecturer at this university.

I would not be amazed if Johan Lundgren = JOHAN Carlson + Urban LUNDGREN, and airliners.net was a university project that worked rather well!!

Of course, this is just a theory that I cannot prove, but I will investigate further  Smile !!!

Also, I believe that "Johan Lundgren" sometimes participates in these forums with another username then administrator. What username would that be? I have a good idea, but I'm not going to tell you  Nuts !

Regards,
Erasmus.  Smokin cool

Okay, sorry to bust you conspiracy theorist's bubbles but if you go to http://www.luth.se/search.en.htm and search Johan's name, you will get two hits for students at the university.

You guys need a new hobby.

Meanwhile, you might like to know that there's both photos and lots of info about me on the Internet...

umm.. I guess.

I'd say he doesn't want to post his photo because he is the owner and webmaster of one of the biggest websites in the world, without a photo people can picture him in their heads about what he may look like, but remember he probably looks like anyone else here, he just happens to have a very very big and respectable website.

You can lose alot of authority, power and dominance when people know that you don't look like G W Bush or Tony Blair  Smile

    His real name must be Johan Lundgren or else he would not be able to have the copyright on his website (it is at the bottom of every page).

    Look:

    Copyright © Johan Lundgren, All rights reserved.

    And if it was not his real name...well we could all take photos and what not and it would be legal  Laugh out loud (but I doubt someone who owns the biggest aviation site in the world would copyright with a false name-not to mention the media would eventually find it.)

    He stars in various movies such as GHOSTS OF MISSISSIPPI, and PEARL HARBOR, but he REALLY lives in Sweden.

    Mmmmh. And I've been wondering whether Johan decided to submit a few airliner pics himself, to see whether he would manage to get past the screeners himself.... Johan Ljungdahl.... Johan Lundgren... quite close in my ears...  Big grin

    Seriously. Conspiracy theorists of the world unite!

    How about a reward? Someone could put a bounty on Johan's photo's head - the first user to correctly identify a picture of him should get something...

    Happy hunting!

    Johan, how about this, if enough people sign up for First Class memberships (say, 1000) or something, you will then post your real photo.

    that would be a good incentive for people to sign up I think!!!

    ...a few pics? Is 843 photos a few...?

    ...but Johan is a very common name in Sweden, and if you know about how to pronounce words in Swedish, the family names sounds very different...

    ...and, furthermore, I do have a few photos of myself in my A.net-profile, and I have never ever put my foot in the town of Lulea...

    ...but I can believe that Gary Watt, the famous photographer that shot this famous photo:

    ...he is probably one of the few, who has met the both of us; me, and mr. Lundgren, I was standing next to Gary at LHR, shooting at r/w 27R, the day before this photo was shot (and I was in fact leaving Heathrow this day too, same terminal but in the early afternoon...)

    ...more, I am older than Mr. Lundgren (I'm 40, started shooting planes when I was 17 y.o.)

    ...I do in fact have some correspondence with Mr. Lundgren, in Swedish, of course...

    ...so, it's a (nice) try, unfortunately we are not the same person...

    ...BTW, I don't know either what he looks like, I've been studying that picture many, many times too, to figure out who he might be (...I have one suspect...)
