Wolf,

This is a big job!

- Go to www.airliners.net and find the aircraft you want the picture of by searching for the registration.

- Right click on one of the small thumbnail pictures of the aircraft, and save it as a jpg file using the callsign as a name, like this:

G-AAZZ.jpg

- If you want a second picture of the same aircraft, then it mist be named like this:

G-AAZZ,2.jpg

- When you get home, copy these photo files into the RadarBox Photo directory.  See the directory structure here:

http://radarbox.gofreeserve.com/html/downloads.html

Flight routes is too big a problem I think.

Hope this helps

Edit: link corrected - thanks Rod :-)

Greetings to all,

Thank you Allocator for quick answer (once again). Unfortunately my problem turned out serious one :-(. I think there should be downloadable database files (as there is in AirnavSuite) for update route/planes data. Maybe it is worth considering by Airnav team ?
I have another idea instead. Maybe users of that forum could exchange data / photo files for AirnavBox. Frankly speaking, If somebody updating data files by Internet why not to share with somebody who can not do that?

Best regards,
