More like it? Or should it be two columns three rows?

I mean, I put the linked images into a table because they looked funny on my browser.

Thanks a lot, this is what I wanted. My HTML-skills aren't that good.

The image server you loaded your pictures on seems to have problems. (It's Apache is alive, but won't load anything but an error message even for the root IP address.)

They changed their organisation of the directories, so URL's are wrong now.
When I try to edit the gunship-story to correct the URL's I get this message "Story (2006/3/4/1633/75785) cannot be edited because it is currently in show mode"  Ideas ?
For the other plane diary's there is no problem.
Sorry for stealing your time.

I can't really figure out why this is - probably you normal users can't edit archived diaries. I can, however, so if you post the correct links (or simple link editing instructions) in a comment, I'll do the corrections.

Gunship diary : photo links (all) :

First part of the URL is : http://72.51.33.159/

must be replaced by : http://image2.frappr.com/

the remainder of the URL's : no changes.

Thanks  a lot DoDo, works fine now. Only a small typo in the url of the last photo (a '9' slipped in after .com). There is also a photo in the comments which can be fixed the same way.
I now moved to a server that doesn't mess around with directories. Thanks again for your effort.

Sadly, even frontpagers can't edit comments - nor can they post new comments in archived threads.

I suggest though that you re-arrenge it in some 2 columns 3 rows arrangement, so that the diary does't blow up the screen of viewers with smaller screens.

I will do that tomorow when adding the new one. Bit short in time today.

Since this seems to be about special BIG planes, how about one on the B-52? Interesting how this Korean war era design is still the core of the USAF bomber fleet, 54 years later...
by asdf on Thu Apr 20th, 2006 at 09:25:28 PM EST
The B-52 is on my list since the history of that plane is also a history of US wars the last 50 years.

But, I hope, you'll keep civilian planes in the majority!

Actually, it's two big, three medium-sized and one mini-plane on the pictures.

Whoookay... Where's that comment from someone (detlef?) who mused that very little people understand the same idea during communications...? This goes far beyond what I imagined; I just thought a link-fest with a list of links to your diaries would cut it.

This however rises above and beyond it. Instant gratification. Elco, you just took the odds and raised them. Soon, everyone wants do it like this...

Brilliant, in one word.

Well, after the thunder and lightning I got from my boss this morning, you make my day sunny again, thanks.

I am not sure if it is a special plane, but it is a gracious one.

You just gave me an idea : race-planes !
Yes, your picture shows a very special plane: the Curtis  Pitts Special, a plane for world champions till today.
