    Hi,

    I recently had a "hot" rejection (among other reasons) of a bizjet. The upload was under the "hot" category not because of a new reg for JP, but because it was a very recently built aircraft. It was built in Dec. 2007 and deliviered to its current (unkown) owner and registered by the end of June, less than 2 months ago. I thought that would qualify as hot being a new aircraft (but not a new model)? If not, what am I not getting (yes, I AM stupid! )

    Thanx and I appologize to the screeners for me using the hot feature in the wrong way, I know it takes time off your work .. sorry!

    regards

    Depends. Another P-51, rather not. A BF-110, P-47, P-40 or Wildcat or FW190. If there are no previous pics of the bird in the db, then it is worth a try.

    Im guessing you would still not class a warbird making one of its first post restoration flights as hot photo.

    • rare type is not hot
    • rarely seen is not hot
    • first visit to an airport is not hot
    • none of the reg in the db is not hot, if there are others of the same operator and type


    [photoid=6267554]
    [photoid=6241458]

    Upload page says : "Does this photo show a new aircraft type for a particular airline, a new paint scheme, ...."

    This thread says :

    This is a reminder of when to use the "Hot Photo" upload when its:

    A new airline.

    A new colour scheme for an airline.

    A new aircraft type for an airline.

    New aircraft types airliners, bizjets, cargo aircrafts ect.

    A special colourfull scheme for an airline.

    When not to use the "Hot Photo" upload:

    When the photo shows a new registration, but the airline already has several of the same aircraft type.

    First visits of an airline to an airport if we already have 50+ photos in the data base of the same aircraft and airline.

    "This is the first time I have ever seen one of these" is not a hot photo reason if it happens to be a widely covered aircraft already.

    Jid,

    any particular reason why is it is not a 'hot' photo - to me it qualifies on rare type, rarely seen, first visit and none in database.

    By re-uploading it will add several days before it gets onto the database so loosing the immediacy of the shot.

    Do not bother with 'hot' tick as I normally do not get to see really rare stuff but I did think this one was worth a go. As the appeal was also rejected does it remain in the normal queue or does it need to be uploaded again?
    It will need to be uploaded again.

    Thanks .. Jid

    Ah, I see. Thanks very much seahawk, for clearing that up.

    I do believe that it was the first official unveiling but, in any case, I was late to queue the photo (almost two months from the date of the event), so I suppose that is moot.

    Thanks again.

    If the airshow would have been one of the first (or the first) displays of a MiG-35, then yes.

    Seahawk,

    Does this mean that if the photo was queued up closer to the date of the airshow or, to be more precise, on the day after, if not the same day as it was taken, it could (or would) have been accepted as a hot photo?

    No, hot is not only linked to the numbers of pictures in the db, but also to the date of the "event".

    If it is older then a few days, then by all means it is not hot any more.

    Plz note, that I said "event". By which we mean things, like first sighting of a new color scheme, delivery of a "first of type" to an airline, first showing of a new military type etc.

    Hi,

    I have a question on this topic.

    This photo of the MiG-35 was taken at an airshow and was put into the hot queue, but subsequently rejected on that basis, as well as a quality issue, which was later rectified and re-uploaded, but not as a hot shot because of the screener's call on my incorrect selection of the photo as 'hot'.

    The photo was taken in February of 2007 and to date there are only three shots of this type on the database, two of which are mine (the first two).

    Should this not have been a hot photo? Any feedback would be most appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kamlesh

    Oh sorry, forgot to add that it is the first aircraft to incorporate the new tail scheme.
    Does that make it any different?

    If this isn't the first aircraft of a kind, then it's not a hot photo. So, beeing the 3rd B767, it shouldn't be uploaded as hot.
