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.

Curtiss-Wright SNC-1 (CW-22 for the U.S. Navy).

The Curtiss-Wright CW-22 is a new design based on the CW-19 trainer. The landing gear is no more fixed but is retracting rearward into underwing fairings. The powerplant is still an air-cooled radial engine but no more with seven cylinders : the new Wright Whirlwind got 9 cylinders. The Royal Netherlands East Indies Army Air Force was he first customer but the Japanese expansion overran the Dutch territories and those 36 airframes felt into ennemy hands, some supposed being used by their Air Force. On the other side of the Pacific, around a century airframes of an improved variant (CW-22B) were sold to some LATAM countries and Turkey. But most of the production (305 airframes) was of an unarmed variant dedicated to the U.S.S Navy need, the SNC-1 Falcon.

Production of the SNC-1 Falcon and others CW-22 variant led to a total close to 450 airframes.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of these aircraft.
