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

Manufacturing a Saunders-Roe SR.45 Princess as seen in Family Portrait.

The Princess was the largest all-metal flying boat ever constructed (*) but the project was delayed by difficulties with the Bristol Proteus engines. This led to two Princesses were built but never flew (G-ALUO and G-ALUP) whilst the prototype, G-ALUN, first flew on 22 August 1952 and made 46 test flights in total for about 100 hours flying time including displaying at the Farnborough Air Show in September 1953. The three airframes were stored against possible purchase but when an offer was made it was found that corrosion had set in; as a result they were scrapped.

(*) the Hughes H-4 Spruce Goose was wider but built in spruce not metal.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Saunders-Roe SR.45 Princess.
