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

Boeing 747SP-86

Ep. 09 Tovaritch Merlaux.
An unwanted background as the Boeing 747 first flew only eight years after the action set on August 1961; and more over 1976 for the SP.
Director tried to shot the scene in order to hide the cockpit and let think it's just a Boeing 707.
The livery correspond to an ex Iran Air airplane.

Ilyushin Il-14P

Ep. 09 Tovaritch Merlaux.
Fictitious registration : CCCP-0613 / SSSR-0613 is too short.
But an Ilyushin Il-14P reg. СССР-06132 s/n: 146000709 is displayed in an open air museum at Ulyanovsk, Russia. This aircraft has a red/orange fadding band enclosing her windows and Aeroflot title is slighty different.
