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

The Nakajima G5N Shinzan was a four-engined, twin tailed long-range heavy bomber designed and built for the Imperial Japanese Navy prior to World War II. In order to reach 3,000 nmi (5,600 km; 3,500 mi) with a war load, the new design would be a four engine airframe, a formula never study by japanese engineers. The prototype of the Douglas DC-4E was purchased by Nippon Koku K.K. (Japan Airlines Co) and clandestinely handed over to the Nakajima Aircraft Company for dismantling and inspection. Of the six completed Shinzans, four of them were relegated for use as long-range Navy transports under the designation G5N2-L Shinzan-Kai Transport due to poor performance as a result of a combination of excessive weight, the unreliability of the 1,870 hp engines or lack of power of the 1,530 hp replacement engines.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Nakajima G5N.
