Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

A la conquête du pôle movie poster.

Movie (1912)
English title : The Conquest of the Pole
German title : Die Entdeckung des Nordpols
Spanish title : A la conquista del polo
Russian title : Завоевание полюса

Georges Méliès (Professor Maboul / Dr Ingenieur Klaps)
Fernande Albany (suffragette)

Intense debate between world Congressionists : the race to the North Pole is open but by which way ? On the ground (by road ? by train ? by sleigh ?) or on the sea (using a steamer or a submarine or a yacht ?). Maybe by airship or a balloon ? Professor Maboul (literraly "Crazy" or "Nuts") submits an Aerobus which gains unanimity. Preparations are quickly done and the flight is long (8 minutes on 30 minutes for the whole movie) but victory is in sight. Damned ! the aérobus is broken at landing and the international crew is endangered by a frost giant. Their salvation comes from the skies and everyone could congratulate each other at the French Aéro-club's banquet.
1912 is a key year in aviation. Aeroplanes are still rare but progress are fast. Please read the discussion tab to help you understand how Mémiès could right or wrong in this fantasy.

Fictional Aircraft

Most of the aircraft and flying machines and balloons and airships are fictional although a handful can evoke some real production.
Let's try to detail them.
