    Ok, thanks AJ. By the way, while I was writing that post, I had an EG&G photo that was in the queue marked as 'Military' get accepted.

    Thanks mate.

    From what I can establish the USAF does own the aircraft, however they are operated by a defence contractor, being EG&G under the nickname Janet Airlines.

    To follow our guidelines info is listed as the Operator, which being EG&G means a civilian company, therefore civilian genre!

    Hi AJ,

    Thanks for the quick response and an answer that is more difinitive. Well, in the future when uploading 'Janet', I'll check the 'Civillian' box instead of 'Military' and if they get rejected for 'Genre', I'll just refer my rejecting screener to this thread. Thanks again for your time and hope all is well...


    Take care,
    Brad

    Regarding a cockpit photo of a B-17, I got rejected for genre and category. The auto-fill came up with military. It has a civilian reg#, so is it not supposed to be military? Now I'm confused. Also for genre, I checked cockpit but I'm guessing I should also check "warbird"?? I'm not sure if I did but I probably didn't. I wish the rejection list would include what categories/genres you selected because I'll never remember!

    Yeah, you should also have checked 'Warbird/Vintage' Bruce.

    As for the B-17 in question, yes, it is now in Civilian hands on the N register.

    Goodday,

    Your opinion please about this problem:

    My latest rejections are the airlpanes of Marche Verte. They were partially rejected for wrong genre. I uploaded them as civil aircraft, because of the civil registration. I did that because I read the upload rules belonging to genres and the rule said:


    Only two options here and the Auto-Fill should select the correct genre automatically on most occasions. The Genre is based on the current registration worn by the aircraft.

    The registrations started with CN- ... is a civil registration. And the airplanes are standing in the civil register of Morcco
    http://www.brugier.com/n_cn.htm#CN-AAA

    Nevertheless the photos were rejected. __________________

    If you enter CN-ABT into the database at scramble you will find the plane listed as belonging to Morocco - Air Force.

    So, yes it is indeed a military aircraft with a civil registration, which is not that uncommon. The French do this with the Alphajets of the PdF and their A340s are also dual registered.

    Thanks Stefan, I shall upload them in the future as military.

    But when I uploaded these photos I was convinced that they are civil, by the registration, but also the type. A CAP-232 is not really built as a military airplane.

    To be sure I read the JP rule for genre and when I read this:
    The Genre is based on the current Registration worn by the aircraft.
    I was sure I had to choose for civil.

    Or do I have to read the rule in a other way??

    As with every rule, there are always some strange exceptions.

    Those Marche Verte are civil registered, yet belong to the Air Force of Morroco. On the other side you have planes like the P-180 of Italy´s Guardia di Financia. Operator is not an air Force, yet the plane carries a military reg and in that case it should be up-loaded as military.

    It is impossbile to find one rule that fits all circumstances. If in doubt we are glad to help, if you ask in the forums before up-loading. It saves all sides a lot of time and frustration.

    N897NN should not be a special scheme since it just has a couple of stickers correct?

    I just want to be clear on this, since this: http://www.jetphotos.net/viewqueued_b.php?id=4055881 has a civilian reg #, 'Civilian' should be selected correct?
