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,

NASA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration in the National Airspace System, or UAS-NAS project, will sunset at the end of 2020 after nearly a decade of effort across several NASA centers. The project identified, developed and tested technologies and procedures to reduce technical barriers associated with unmanned aircraft having routine access to airspace occupied by human-piloted aircraft.
