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

Station 3, an American germ warfare lab has created the deadliest virus in the history of mankind. Called the Satan Bug, it has a mortality rate of 100% and if unleashed could kill the entire population of the world in mere months. When thieves steal the only known sample of the Satan Bug, as well as an experimental strain of botulinus, Lee Barrett is tasked with tracking them down and recovering the viruses before they're used.

Ainsley's helicopter is a red 47J-2 Ranger, Reg. N73202, Serial 1850, also seen in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft. It appears to be the same helicopter above repainted. Barrett takes it over midflight, throwing the pilot out, and recovers the flask of the Satan Bug, before Ainsley jumps out to his death.
