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,

Ilyushin Il-40 seen in Wings of Russia (page 2).

The IL-40 was a twin-engined aircraft with low-set swept wings and a retractable tricycle undercarriage designed in 1951. Despite successful, this aircraft manned by a crew of two (a pilot and a rear gunner/radio operator) suffered engines extinction (flame-outs) when firing the six machine guns fitted in the nose. So the second prototype (Il-40P) has the inlet ducts being extended all the way forward to prevent gun blast gas ingestion. But in 1956, priority was given to others programs and led to cancellation. It must not be confused with the Il-102 of the seventies which was beaten in competition by the Sukhoi T-8 (prototype Su-25).

Only seven prototypes were manufactured.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Ilyushin Il-40.
