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.

Le grand Meaulnes movie poster.

Movie (2006)

Jean-Baptiste Maunier (François Seurel)
Nicolas Duvauchelle (Augustin Meaulnes)
Clémence Poésy (Yvonne de Galais)
Jean-Pierre Marielle (Monsieur de Galais)
Malik Zidi (Franz de Galais)

(Synopsis needed)

Various Model

The novel of Alain-Fournier ends in 1913 but the movie reaches the first fightings of the Great War (World War One). Another major change is about Franz. Aviation enthusiast and pilot on the screen, he's just a tramp into the book until he meets again Valentine.
First, in 1910, Frantz is just building models. We guess a Wright Brothers and perhaps a glider of Otto Lilienthal.
