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

Santos Dumont n° 6 seen in The Conquest of the Air.

In April 1900, Henri Deutsch de la Meurthe offered a prize of 50,000 francs to the first machine capable of flying a round trip from the Parc de Saint Cloud to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and back in less than thirty minutes. After several attempts, on 19 October 1901, Santos-Dumont launched a new lighter-than-air, his Number 6 airship at 2:30 pm. After only nine minutes of flight, Santos-Dumont had rounded the Eiffel Tower. Despite engine problems on the return flight, he was able to cross the line seconds just before the time limit.

This page lists all films that feature airship Number 6 (and number 5 slighty smaller and lost during a former attempt).
