      Hi all,

      We could use some new Walkarounds of the latest airliners that have been introduced recently. The A350, A320NEO, 787-9, the Embraer jets, etc. etc., plus all the oldies we have missing. If you have ramp access, please take a few minutes before or after your shift and snap some photos to help us all out. You don't have to do any formatting or anything else. Simply zip them all up and email to me, or upload to Dropbox and I will get them from there. I will take care of everything else. Don't worry about sending too many. I will go through and pick the best ones.

      Thanks for your help!

      Regards,

      I went to the MoF recently and took a bunch of pictures of the 707-153B, 727-122, 747 prototype, 787-8 #3, and a few others. Is there a specific Dropbox you'd like them uploaded to?

      Hi Merlin,

      I don't have a dropbox account, can you just upload to yours and give me the link? Once I have downloaded it, you can delete it. Thanks!

      I have just created a DropBox account. If that will make things easier, send it my way. Thanks!

      Ahmed-

      Is there a way to add captions or short descriptions to individual photos? Some of the Electra pics I'm getting cleaned up and ready need explanation, as they're either *very* close up and lack some context, or were taken from strange angles to get the most detail.

      Thanks!

      Hi there,

      Yes, we can add captions to the photos. Just give me the file name(s) and what the caption should be for each one, and I'll add it.

      Ahmed, I added you to the Dropbox, I'm still uploading more pictures from my old computer from over the years.

      If anybody else is building either of the following and wants close-ups, please let me know. I've got a massive amount of these from the Museum of Flight that I've taken over the years, and can add you to my dropbox account if you'd like to see some of them:

      707-153B (VC-137B)
      727-22
      727-223
      737-100 l/n 1
      747-100 l/n 1
      Concorde
      L-1049

      Please PM me with an email address if you'd like me to add you.
