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.

Fiat G.212

Reg. I-ENEA Fiat G.212 c/n 10 built in 1948. Here with the colors of ALI - Flotte Riunite, the airline company own by Fiat (ALI-Flotte Riunite was liquidated in March 1952).
Later sold to S.I.P.T.A. and still wearing the same registration.
In 1954, the aircraft was sold to Arabian Desert Airlines and so registered as G-ANOE.
On 29 July 1954, during the final approach completed by night, the pilot did not realize his altitude was insufficient when the three engine airplane hit a sand dune located few dozen yards short of runway. While all three crew members were unhurt, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair... but is visible on a picture taken in 1955 at the Beirut airport !
