Half A Million Posts And Going Strong!

Wed Nov 07, 2001 3:13 am

Hello all,

As some of you might have noticed, the Civil Aviation forum just passed 500,000 posts from when we started it back in October 21, 1998 at 21:23:33 CET.

This discussion forum is now the most active aviation forum on the Internet, all thanks to you guys. Thank you all for your interesting and thought provoking posts!

Maybe those of you that have been around for some time could dig up one or more threads from the past three years that you think really stands out as memorable discussions. Please post the description and link to the threads as a reply below.

Again, thank you for participating in the Airliners.net discussion forums. It's an honor being your host.

Sincerely,
Johan Lundgren
Editor Airliners.net

Think we should charter a plane? Imagine the bickering when we try to decide what plane to charter  Laugh out loud. We'd probably settle on an L1011

To me, the thread that sticks in my mind was when the Emery DC-8 crashed in California. A.net was THE place to hear the news break and to get the latest news. That, and the drama of the early responses were striking.

I often get aviation/airline news here before the media even knows it's happened. When I need information, this is where I turn.

Congratulations, and here's to 500,000 more.

I Airliners.net!



I wonder how many A vs. B posts there have been over the years. Then again, i wonder how many L1011 vs. DC-10 posts there have been......

Hi!

Just to express my feeling that this place as been great to talk about aviation. Beeing born in the era where beeing an enthusiast was quite hard and difficult to share experiences with other fellows it's good to see the evolution. I've been having good fun here and I hope to keep going for many years.

Maybe those of you that have been around for some time could dig up one or more threads from the past three years that you think really stands out as memorable discussions.

Okay, it was my thread, but it was a lot of fun...

https://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/481314/

However, the funniest thing I ever read here has to be 777236ER's contribution to https://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/594109/. I still think he should get a Pulitzer.
