Airliner.net pics in reviews

Recommended Posts

Lately in reviews I have seen directly linked airliner.net photos (Credit is given though) as comparison to the product being reviewed. I thought directly linking Airliner.net photos was a major no no for them and also against AVSIM rules? Just curious if something has changed?

Reviewers often compare product to real world places or aircraft. You will have also seen Google Earth references in scenery reviews or personal aircraft pictures in aircraft reviews. As long a copyright credit is given where credit is due, linking to other websites is fine.

You may however link to the photos in the manner described below.Then it goes on to demonstrate the proper way to link to a photo.
