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.

During World War II, tank commander Joe Gunn and his men find themselves separated from the Allied lines in the Sahara desert. They try and make it back to their side, picking up some British soldiers, a native African volunteer and a friendly Italian P.O.W. along the way. In their search for water, they find a well at an abandoned mission, but find themselves besieged by Germans under the command of Major von Falken, who want the water for themselves. A desperate battle for the watering hole begins.

Used by Luftwaffe pilot Captain von Schletow in an attempt to strafe the tank, but is shot down with the tank's machine gun and forced to bail out. His "German" P-51 crashes without him and explodes.
