It is suggested that you read rec.aviation for a little while
before you post, so that you can best determine which subgroup is
appropriate for your posting.

If you post to a moderated newsgroup, please note that your posting
will be e-mailed to the moderator for approval. Generally, approval
occurs within 48 hours. If your posting does not conform to the
charter of the moderated group, it will not be posted, and, in general
you will not receive a response.

In addition, the following newsgroups outside the rec.aviation
hierarchy may be of interest:
sci.aeronautics the science of aeronautics & related technology (mod.)
sci.aeronautics.airliners (moderated)
sci.military discussion about science & the military (moderated)
rec.travel.air airline travel around the world
