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

Film Info

The Germans only use red Fokker DR1's made famous by Manfred Von Richthofen aka The Red Baron.

The English used Bristol F2B's SE5A's and Sopwith Camel's but these aircraft are only seen on the ground.

Handley Page bomber's are used in a bombing scene in the movie. - User:93MANIAC


There were no SPAD's in this movie. The green two place was a Nieuport 12. The aircraft you ID as a Nieuport 17 is the Bristol F2B mentioned above. The Nieuport 17's built for this movie were from Airdrome Aeroplanes: http://www.airdromeairplanes.com/photogallery/Flyboys/index.html Smutny


Agreed with you about the Bristol F.2B, but not on the Nieuport 12, which doesn't match at all with this and the 17 neither. About the SPAD, I didn't see this film, but I guess it's an archive footage. Sixcyl 15:59, 2 February 2011 (MST)
