Pictaero's Screeners' Choice - Monday October 8th 2007

This week, I have decided to start with a brand new aircraft that has not been seen yet: the first A320 for LAN Airlines. Then, you may see the first ATR delivered to Aer Arann in April 2007.
A320-200 - F-WWDM ATR 72-500 - F-WWEI
Many thanks to Yvan for that new A320!

Then, two rare aircraft; a USAF DC-9 visiting Toulouse-Blagnac (LFBO/TLS) and a Bell 301 during its flight display at the Paris air show in 1981!!!
VC-9C Nightingale - 73-1681 Bell 301 XV-15 - N702NA

It is the props' turn now. Old aircraft and not as old (but nothing that new)! Fokker, Constellation and Lightning.
Fokker 27-500 - HA-FAC Lockheed Constellation - HB-RSC Lockheed Lightning - N3145X

Finally, two unusual photographs; one for the plane's colour, the other for the colour in the background!
Socata MS-963A - F-BPMM Jodel DR-1050 - F-PYXU

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

Four different categories this week.
We have chosen a large number of Airbus aircraft to start with! Both for their quality and their composition, such as an A319 wing taken in flight, with a beautiful sunset, and an A330 in front of threatening stormy clouds!
A319 - G-EZAY
A330-300 - B-6097 A330-200 - F-WWYP
A340-200 - F-RAJA A340-600 - F-WWCA A340-600 - F-WWCV

Concorde - when it showed up - still is a thrilling plane, although it is no longer in the air!
Concorde - F-BTSD Concorde - F-BTSD

Before we finish, let us stop at a selection of light aircraft, some of which are very rare in the Western world!
Technoavia SP-94 - RA-44496 Waco UPF-7 - F-AZLC Rutan 61 - F-PJLB

Finally, not knowing where to place those two pictures, a photograph of a Dassault Rafale B, during the Bex Air Show, and a EuroAir MD-83, providing Aegean with a temporary uplift capacity!
Rafale B - 302 MD-83 - SX-BEU

Once again, thank you to all of you and see you next time for our Weekly Screeners' Choice!

Upload incident finally solved

Published on 09-26-2007 by Curufinwe in Send a comment | Permanent link | 0 comment(s)

Good evening,

As you may have noticed, Pictaero has encountered a few technical problems since Saturday 22nd September. In fact, because of a configuration problem on our main server, sending pictures was impossible.

We have just finished mending it an hour ago because repairing it was long and difficult (we had to find the problem - which was very complex - and correct it).

Everything is settled now! If you tried to upload pictures within that period of time, you will find the list of the pictures that could not be uploaded on the upload form: Then, click on "Continue" to proceed your upload.

We would like to apologize for any inconvenience, we tried everything we could to keep the website online and available.

David, on behalf of the whole Pictaero team.
