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

La Grande Vadrouille poster

Movie (1966)
English title : Don't Look Now... We're Being Shot At!

Bourvil (Augustin Bouvet)

Claudio Brook (Peter Cunningham)
Andréa Parisy (Sœur Marie-Odile)

A RAF Bomber is shot down over Paris by the Germans. Its crew (Terry Thomas as a flight captain) land there by parachute. With the help of some French civilians (Louis De Funès in the role of a conductor and Bourvil as a house painter), they try to escape over the demarcation line into the southern part of France, still not occupied by the Germans.

Morane-Saulnier MS-502 Criquet

The Criquet is a Fieseler Storch with a french Salmson engine, built after 1945.
