We are Luxair Luxembourg Airlines and we found this picture on the airport site: Luxair L1649A Super Star Constellation LX-LGY It'a a Luxair plane and we will become this picture with all right. Can you help us and give the contact to the photograph to become this picture. Best regards Patrice Gousenbourger
I'm sure that we all welcome 'LiverpoolAlex' as the forum's 600th member at the very end of May. 100 new signed up members in 7 months, not bad, considering the numbers of users who remain as 'guests', not wishing to have the right to enter information. With the 650th member reached on 22nd August, so 50 more in under 3 months.
Although there has been a drop over the past few days, watching the count towards the bottom of the index page, there are regularly just under 100 named members signing-in in each 24 hours (many though, like me, make multiple views each day), and a further 350-450 'guests' visiting (some will be members not logging-in and some will be multiple visits by the same guest). Still I consider 550 counted visits in each 24 hours highly creditable - and way higher than the membership of any Liverpool based society in the days of monthly paper-based magazines. By late August the daily count reaches a total of 650 visits daily on many days, with 750 or so the maximium.
There has been a jump in the number of posts over the past few months from around 10-15 per day to 20-30 posts per day. More posts provide a wider variety of subjects, so an even greater appeal to all.
Keep on spreading the word, that here is a great forum recording many aspects, not just of its home base Liverpool aviation activity, but also around the North West and well, well beyond - with a great balance of current, historic, civil, military, written, photographic and well, lets face it the downright bizarre!
Don't be shy about asking other spotters "Are you aware that information about today will be on the nwan forum internet site ?"
Spread the word. Particularly post links to this forum on other forums when a legitimate opportunity occurs.
Although today, 6th September, has been a fairly ordinary day, I note that the site visits in the last 24 hours counter has topped a combined total of 900 for the first time. Never noticed the total even going over 800 before today! Currently recording 115 different members (113 + 2 invisible) using the site in 24 hours and 789 guest 'hits' (will be less than that number of different users though) = 904.
Presume we have been 'plugged' on a national site with hyperlink to produce such a massive jump in hit rate. Normally 'big hit' days are associated with charters or diversions - is it the eye-witness reports of the A.380 incident at MAN that has caused all the extra forum traffic? Hope that users finding our site on hyper-link for one subject search around to find there is much else to interest them on both this forum and parent www.nwan.co.uk website.
BTW, Dave, can you reset the erroneous counter for 'maximum viewers at the same time' - at one time usually peaked around 35, then jumped to a silly 326 last March and stayed there.
Welcome 'Apache' as our 700th signed up member on 6th November 2010.
Thats a further 50 in around two and half months, new members are still signing up at a regular rate - its good to see that this forum site is being found and regularly visited by an increasing number of aviation enthusiasts. As a regular contributor to the site, the quality of photographic images, information, visit logs and the informed answers to questions, simple or obscure never ceases to amaze.
I note from information on the home index page that daily just over 100 members log in under their usernames and between 700 and 850 'guests' visit (although a number will be multiple log-ins) within the 24 hour period. Haven't spotted the combined count top 1000 hits per day yet (although it could well have last Thursday as users looked for information on the Europa Cup footie flights), but I was away from a PC.
Also, thanks to Moderator Dave for amending the section titles recently, making it easier to place entries for sites around the North West, away from the main airfields.
Finally. do keep spreading the word about what the nwan forum has to offer with its North West centric view of matters aviation, but well, well beyond too.
During the poor weather of the past week, noticed the 24 hour visit-count frequently around the 950 mark. Late evening Wednesday 22nd December the count topped 1000 - 924 visitor hits, 91 different members and 2 invisible members = 1017 in total. Possibly not the first time 1000 has been passed, but certainly the first time I've spotted it. Next time was Friday 21st January 2011, when the total count just reached 1047
Shows that our nwan forum is becoming ever more popular with its varied mix of current activity, nostalgia, visits reports and comment. Nice to see the daily 'hit' pass 1000 - I would guess that represents 600 - 700 different users (due to visitors being counted on every visit).
Do keep spreading the word as to what broad coverage the site has to offer aviation enthusiasts.
Interesting observations on the LJLA daily thread for 31.1.11 by Beemer and others.
Most users on-line jumped from a false and highly unlikely 326 (which has stood since March 2010), to an amazing 547 at 1853 hours on Monday 31st January 2011. The 24 hour counter jumped to a total of 1,526 (92 members, 1431 guests, 3 invisible members) from around a usual total of 850-920 daily this week. By 1935 hours recording 90+1449+3 = 1541. Previous highest observed count was a few weeks ago at 1,050.
A few minutes after the 547 users on-line was recored at 1853, at 1910 the current users counter showed a very high (but not amazing) 13 members + 58 guests'. Rather less than the near 500 noted by Beemer minutes before. By 1935 hours down to a reasonably busy 7+30+1 = 38 users.
So why such a short and high spike? My hypothesis is that, due to the comments regarding helicopter movements connected with the FA 'Transfer Window', the nwan forum was hyper-linked to a football forum - in the process the number of members logged into that site transfered to our counter. I would think that 550 users at once would overload and trip our forum, used as it is to a max number of users at once of nearer 50!

Viscount .... Well that is just taking the biscuit!
Perhaps the previous one-time visitor record can also be traced back to a football issue and wasn't a glitch or anomaly at all? It indeed seems that our forum has coped admirably with a huge influx this evening - not bad for a freebie and a vast improvement on the old Xsorbit horror story!!
I notice that during the last weekend in March 2011, the number of 'signed-up' members has passed the 750 mark. The forum, in its current form, hosted by Derbosoft, has been going for a few weeks over two years.
I notice too, that the number of daily hits (members logged-in, plus number of guests) is usually between 950 and 1050, exceeding 1150 during the football and Virgin Airbus visit days during the past fortnight.
Going from strength to strength.
