What A.net Picture Is Your Current Background?

Tue Feb 03, 2004 12:15 pm

As an avid fan of A.net, it seems that 99.5% of my desktop wallpapers come from A.net; I figure a lot of you guys are much the same. I thought'd it be interesting to compare your choices. What do you have as your current background?

Here's mine:

I have had this for a while and I think that if I was in one of those Ford's I would have crashed. I can't really find any good UA777-222's. Though on CNN when they escorted a BA777-200 the view of it landing just made me fall in love even more with the A/C.

Question: If you don't like to look at airplanes then why do you come onto AIRLINERS.net? It's kind of a contradiction to what your saying isn't it?
