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.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet

These are ordered by the President to drop thermite plasma on Alcatraz. Goodspeed manages to give the signal to stop the airstrike in the nick of time. CGI is used for the shots where the planes hit Alcatraz and fly under the Golden Gate bridge. The aircraft are depicted with fictional "Air Force" markings. In reality, the USAF does not operate the type.
