Why didn't you just move to Flickr for free?

Yes I thought about that ! I have been with PB for a long time through the free account which is very limited ... moved on to a paid account which served my purpose very well .... then thinking if PB get away with this huge change ? how long before Flickr moves in the same direction ???

Photobucket has been hemorrhaging cash for the last 5 or 6 years, they're a couple of billion in debt from memory.

Flickr is owned by Yahoo, who after their last restructure are quite profitable! So I'd say...not for many, many years.

Well, they will "get away with it" if people keep stumping up when they ask for large sums of money...

Hampshire Aviation ! Thanks for the financial input ... I have learned from that !!
LN Strike Eagle ! Yes good point ! So time will tell ??? One thing that amused me ... from my original account the photos stored amounted to 43% of my allocated space .... Following my upgrade to the 'mega bucks' account they accounted to less than 1% ..... so more photos to come ??

Not sure how much space they give you on PB, but on Flickr a free account is 1TB of storage. My 2,738 photos are less than 1% of that.

Well a mini statement from the 'hole in the wall' this evening tells me ... £264.00 ... Slightly more than one day at work for 365 days of PB ... which I do use for a lot of over things ... So I hope it's worth it ? Although I must say it is now very fast and no crashes so far ??

Back to 5N-BRN ... This afternoon the spray shop doors were opened for the de-fueling, weighing, process ... so a quick photo showing not much change since arrival ... a few green primer areas looking much better ... hopeing for more photos tomorrow when it should 'possibly' leave Norwich ?? ... fingers ready children :lol:

Well my comment last evening about it leaving today almost came true ... until late this evening ... It was finally towed from spray as the sun was setting ... fuelled and ready to leave ... Many thanks to Tink for the later update ! The aircraft has a tech issue and spending another night at Norwich ??

Last chapter in this story ... Following what ever happened last evening ? this aircraft finally left Norwich mid afternoon today, last seen on FR24 over Majorca, I assume heading for Lagos ?
