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.

TV Movie (2008)
English titles: Mogadishu Welcome: The Hijacking of Flight 181

In 1977, skyjackers abduct Lufthansa Flight 181, subsequently involving Germany's special operations unit GSG 9 to free all the hostages.

Boeing 737-2B6

The aircraft involved in Lufthansa Flight 181 was 737-230C registration D-ABCE, c/n 20254/230, named Landshut. Footage of actual airframe can be seen the in the documentary That Was the Year: 1977.
While this airframe was still extant at time of filming, it was in commercial service in Brazil with airline TAF Linhas Aéreas.
Rather than filming in Brazil, the filmmakers instead rented 737-2B6 registration CN-RMI, c/n 21214/449 from Royal Air Maroc, who kept the airframe maintained for training purposes at the now-closed Casablanca–Anfa Airport, and repainted it in Landshut's colors.
