Including EXIF Data on FlightAware photos

Did some searching and didn’t find much on this topic, it would be great to include the EXIF Data (if exists) on the gallery view of a photo uploaded to FlightAware. Mainly as an aid to anyone who wants to go out and capture photos- it’s nice to get an idea of what settings were used to capture some of these amazing unique shots. The data is usually there, so I don’t know why some sort of display can’t be built around it.

What really comes to mind is what Flickr does for each photo. You don’t need to include EVERYTHING from the EXIF data, Just the camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO (again, whatever is available, some people may strip them out before uploading and that’s fine too)
Here’s an example from Flickr:

I don’t want this to turn into a discussion on copyright and ownership (there were other forum posts about this and I’m sure FlightAware has a process for handling those issues).

Thanks for the consideration!
