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.

Heinkel He 178 seen in Pioniere : Siegeszug der Düsenjets.


The Heinkel He 178 was a German experimental aircraft and the first in the world to fly powered only by a turbojet. The maiden flight occured on 27 August 1939 but with limited endurance, the aircraft did not catched up attention of Luftwaffe officials. Despite this, Ernst Heinkel convinced Hans von Ohain (the young engineer who had taken out a patent on turbojet) to designed a more powerful aircraft as a private venture which led to the Heinkel He 280, the first turbojet-powered fighter aircraft in the world (but the RLM eventually choose the Messerschmitt Me 262). The second prototype was never completed and the first one was put on display at the Berlin Aviation Museum, where it was destroyed in an air raid in 1943.
