In looking at this shot there is a registration number identified (N858V). Let me know if I'm missing something in your inquiry.
As for it not being designated an Airport Overview, we usually do not reject for a "Category" issues only, since it is something that the screener can adjust before accepting it. If there are other issues, then "Category" may be listed as well.
Understand about the category issue not being a reject reason, that's fine. Now I again protest the issue of selecting the reg of an aircraft clearly not closest to the lens. Again I have had shots rejected for this, then the appeal rejected and yet this is accepted? Sticking with that course of logic shouldn't the reg and data for the Eva 747, Qantas 747, KLM 747 or various others at the bottom of the frame be used? Instead a DC-10 in the middle of the frame is randomly chosen, not data about that frame is even provided in the description. I can understand choosing a registration that is not closest to the lens if it is a historic airframe and background info is given, this is not the case here.
I'm starting to wonder if this photographer is getting a free pass based on who he is. I really enjoy his work, it is not a shot at him at all, but it seems that this individual will have erroneous data errors like this ignored or other elements of the image are overlooked by the screeners and granted acceptance. His work is phenomenal but some of his shots seem a bit off or lacking specific elements and yet they're accepted where as mine and others will have shots that may be lacking those elements and then they have been rejected. I don't feel I am being singled out but I feel like some photographers are getting free passes. This is a text book case, I have had several shots rejected for data for not following the upload data guidelines and yet this shot is accepted. Im just sick of the inconsistency specifically surrounding air to ground images. I know screeners are human, I know it's voluntary as well, but it isnt difficult to have a team wide memo sent regarding data and what is correct and incorrect entries. Sorry to rant, but I have seen this too many times and I feel it needs to be addressed.
All the best,
