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

IAI Kfir seen in Final Mission.

The IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries) Kfir (Lion Cub) was an Israeli made combat aircraft based upon the airframe of the Dassault Mirage V and powered by a J79 turbojet engine. Following substantial aircraft losses in the six day war, the Israeli Air Force needed new aircraft and the Mirage V fitted the bill. However, an arms embargo imposed by the French government prevented them from sourcing any. As an alternative Mossad sourced a vast number of data and designs for the Mirage III which enabled them to build their own variation. There has never been an official explanation of how they were able to find this information. The Kfir was in service with the Israeli Air Force from 1976 until 1996 and was also in service with foreign forces including Colombia, Ecuador and even the United States.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the IAI Kfir.
