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,
Tobin & Rush

Fleet 16B Finch II seen in Captains of the Clouds.

The Fleet Fawn (Fleet Model 7) and the Fleet Finch (Fleet Model 16) are two-seat, tandem training biplanes produced by Fleet Aircraft of Fort Erie, Ontario. Based upon the the Consolidated Model 14 Husky Junior which was never put into production, the new company designed a number of variants mainly based on engine variations of the Kinner B-5. Over several years beginning in 1939, a total of 447 Finches were built, nearly all (431) of them for use as elementary trainers in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) during the Second World War. With six dozens of Fawns and a handfull of intermediate mark (Model 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 10 / 11 / 14), the grand total is more than 750 airplanes built.

This page lists all films that feature those Fleet open cockpit two-seat primary trainers but the Fleet Cornell (a License-built Fairchild Cornell alias PT-19).
