Aircraft recognition competition
Thu, Dec 20 2007 8:32 AM

We thought over the Christmas period we would get a little competition crazy, so we have the caption competition, which i am sure many of you have already seen, and from today we have an aircraft recogntion competition!!!

Basically we have cunningly edited twenty aircraft so you can only see a part of it, and given you a wonderful list of forty aircraft that you have to try and match the images with. It is harder than you think so give it a go and you could win £100 (GBP).

The team really have been impressed by the standard of entries, with the overall winner being boxer 03 (from the Power and Glory category):

Mon, Dec 10 2007 8:37 AM

 After over 230 entries and three months of feverish activity, the Flight International front cover competition came to an end today. We have been really impressed by the overall standard of the pictures received, especially with this being the first year we have done something like this.

Over the next few days a select panel of judges will look at all the photos and make a judgement on each category winner and an overall winner, which you will see in next week's Flight International Magazine.

The judges include our picture specialist Paul Gladman, Flight International's Editor and Deputy Editor Murdo Morrison and Max Kingsley-Jones and Flightglobal's Editor Michael Targett.

We will also feature all the results on AirSpace so keep checking in and also keep uploading your favourite images to your own indivudual galleries. If you have any comments on the competition and how it can be improved next time, please let me know.
