Pictaero's Screeners' Choice - Monday November 5th 2007

Published on 11-05-2007 by Curufinwe in Screeners' choices | Permanent link | 0 comment(s)

Thank you

Why? you may ask. Simply because over 230 photos were accepted this week. There are more than 1700 pictures on the website and over 700 photos have been accepted in only twenty days!
So, once again, thank you!
This week's choice is quite ... "Russian"!

I would like to show you vintage planes to start with, including an Antonov An-2 wonderfully taken by Amandine Lafond (once again!).
An-2 - F-AZHB Yak-50 - F-AZYP
Yak-52 - RA-1115K T-28C Trojan - F-AZHR

After Russian vintage aircraft, Russian airliners!
Tu-154M - RA-85767 Il-62 - UR-86528 Il-96-300 - CU-T1254

Then, very "classical" airliners, but the pictures are great!
A319 - F-GRHT A340-600 - F-WWCJ 727-200 - 4K-8888

Eventually, I would like to finish with one of my favourites. Although the photo is not perfect, the aircraft is very peculiar!
Conroy Tri Turbo 3 - N235A

That is all for today. See you on next Monday for our weekly Screeners' Choice!

A smaller amount of pictures for this week, despite the great number and the quality of the photographs you have uploaded. Many new members have shown up.
We shall then make it simple and have the pictures one after another. An image is worth a thousand words!
But, before I start, I would like to thank particularly Amandine Lafond for her peculiar photos that she uploaded, and continues doing!

Two Yak-52:
Yak-52 - RA-1070K Yak-52 - RA-1529K

A Boeing 747-400 and an A330-200 with KLM colours:
747-400 - HZ-WBT7 A330-200 - PH-AOA

The Patrouille de France, in flight:
Alpha Jet - F-TERN

A BAC One Eleven visiting Toulouse-Blagnac:
BAC 1-11 - ZE432

And finally, the An-225 taken by night:
An-225 - UR-82060

I hope you have liked our selection, and see you in seven days, for our weekly Screeners' Choice!

Positioning your photographs

Published on 10-29-2007 by Curufinwe in News | Permanent link | 0 comment(s)

I guess you have often wondered where a photograph took a photograph that you love. Pictaero.com now provides you with an answer, using the pictures' positioning system!

It has been available for a number of weeks, during the upload procedure and we have finally issued the precise location where the photo was taken! If the photographer has given the data while uploading his picture, a "Shot location" link will show up on the picture's page. Then, you may click on it and a map will open with the location where the shot was taken!

For instance, let us take the Boeing 737 of Hapag-Lloyd taken by Marc-André VEILLARD: Simply click here !

Our system will enable an automatic photographs' positioning: Some of the latest cameras have an in-made GPS that stores the place where the photo was taken. If that data is kept within the picture, it will automatically be saved. Simple and quick cool!

We strongly advise you to provide people with hat information! Besides, some new useful and free devices based on that option are going to be online very soon!

Do not hesitate to send us your comments regarding this option and the way we are offering it to you. You can also give us any idea, ways of improving it ...

200 photos this week!! It is getting better and better!
I have decided to divide our choice into four different parts (four and a half in fact!).
First of all, here is a picture of the A380 delivery and her departure to Singapore on Tuesday October 16th, late at night.
A380-800 - 9V-SKA

Then, let's have a look at a few Airbus, either in commercial service or still undergoing tests, such as an A330-200 due to be delivered to Hainan Airlines.
A330-200 - F-WWKB
A340-300 - HB-JMI A319-100 - F-GRHD A320-200 - CS-TNG

Before passing to the next category, I just wanted to show you Jet Airways newest ATR72, bearing is new colours.
ATR72-500 - F6WWEJ

After Airbus, the competitor from accross the pond, Boeing.
757-200 - TF-FIH 747-200 - F-GCBL

And last but not least, a few magnificent "Warbirds"; a Dewoitine D-27 and a TBM-3 Avenger.
Dewoitine D-27 SA - F-AZJD Grumman TBM-3R Avenger - HB-RDG

Not that bad for the week! Many thanks for all your contributions, and please do not hesitate to leave comments and tell us what your favourite pictures would have been!
See you on next Monday for Pictaero's Screeners' Choice!

More than 170 photos were uploaded last week! This sets a record, but we hope to break it by next Sunday!
We really had a real variety last week.
We may begin with general aviation and bizjets this week!
First of all, a rare aircraft: a Transat Aerolac MD 03! Never heard of it before? I hadn't either until I saw the picture! Many thanks to Antonio for the photograph!
Transat MD 03 - 31-DR
Then, a Yak52, a Pitts S-1 and a Beech 200.
Yak-50 - RA-1012K Pitts S-1D - F-PRIA Beech 200 - HB-GJX

Right, a few A380 pictures now right before the first delivery of the aircraft to Singapore Airlines for its commercial entry in service! To view all the pictures for MSN021's convoy, click here
A380-800 - F-WWSQ A380-800 - F-WWEA

Now, two EMB-170 photographs.

Finally, Airbus planes, a 747 et a Do-328! For instance, a Czech Republic A319ACJ came to Toulouse on October 9th!
A319ACJ - 2801 Do-328 - OE-LIR
A340-300 - 3B-NAV 747SP - HZ-AIF

That's all we have got this week. We hope to have even more pictures to view for next week, including photos fromthe A380 delivery in our weekly Screeners' Choice!
