    nice shots! especially the first one with the mountains in the background. You should upload them on airliners.net if you have heard of it before :)

    btw do you know what is the British Airways Boeing 737 doing in South Africa since its only used for intra Europe flights and doesnt have range to fly that far without fuel stops

    ah i see. Those picky bastards :D jk well to me these shots look professional especially the first one so it's strange that they rejected your photos.
    and thanks for the info about the aircraft in BA's livery

    Hey there! :) I have to say, I've never seen planes this colourful (bright green?! The zipper effect on that one is neat, though). The car one is really trippy to look at, like the car is driving straight off the plane! It's also good compositionally. I've never photographed planes before, but it looks like you did a great job!

    and since the article is dated oct 05 i have to assume its no april fools joke neither :)

    I like the paint scheme and the "salmon thirty salmon" quote :)

    Just glad it wasnt my tax money but then again, my tax money doesnt go to any worthy cause anyways!
