2008 is Flight’s 100 year of publishing.
As part of the celebrations we’re launching a worldwide survey to discover the 100 most popular aviation moments, personalities and aircraft from the past century.
The 100 Greatest is being hosted on AirSpace our community platform and is designed to generate a major discussion around nominations for the following five categories:
The search for the 100 Greatest consists of three phases.
Phase one (i.e. now)
We want your nominations and thoughts on what should be considered, based on personal opinion.
Flight journalists will be sticking their necks out and posting their thoughts.
We’ll be seeking the opinions of industry leaders and well known figures and throwing them into the mix as well.
Phase two (later in the Spring)
At this point we’ll be short listing twenty items in each category. At that point we want people to vote on shortlists to find the winner in each of five categories, and an overall winner.
Phase three (Farnborough Airshow - July)
At the biggest event of the year we’ll be announcing your choices in a grad reveal!
And during all of this we’ll be spotlighting various nominations in a more detailed way both on Flightglobal and in Flight International.
I hope you’ll enjoy participating in Flight’s 100 Greatest as much as we already are!
