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

Hawker Tempest Mk V seen in A Diary for Timothy.

The Hawker Tempest was a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Second World War. Its predecessor the Hawker Typhoon faced compressibility problems and intense flutter at high speed. The Tempest has a new low drag laminar flow wing. Its shape changed too to accomodate four 20 mm cannons. The airframe accomodated two engines, the Napier Sabre IIA series engine with the chin radiator (on the 801 Tempest V built and 142 F Mk VI which were powered by the Sabre V), while the rest were 452 Tempest F Mk II with the a Bristol Centaurus radial piston engine.

Including the prototypes, a grand total of 1 702 Tempest were built.
