Dear Friends:

A few 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

When Soviet forces invade the United States, a small group of high school students escape into the wilderness, calling themselves the Wolverines (after their school's football team), where they attempt to wage guerrilla warfare against the invaders.

General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark

This jet is seen flying overhead briefly at the beginning.


Bell 214

US Army helicopters. One flies by the gas station at the beginning and another attacks the Soviet roadblock in a later scene.


Yakovlev Yak-38

When the Wolverines liberate the Soviet reeducation camp, Tanner destroys this fighter jet by tossing a grenade into the open cockpit before the pilot can take off.


Aérospatiale SA 330 Puma

Mocked up as Soviet Hind helicopters (Mil Mi-24 "Hind A"), three of these pursue the Wolverines through the wilderness.
