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

(Synopsis needed)

Boeing 747SR-46

While the show fictionalized the operator (National Airlines) and manufacturer's (Board Ways) name and aircraft registration, this aircraft is based off of Japan Airline's JA8119 (c/n 20783/230), which did indeed crash while operating as Flight 123 in the side of Mt. Osutaka on August 12, 1985.

Douglas DC-8

Much like the real life JAL, National Airlines operated Douglas DC-8s (called "ST8"s in-universe) during the 1970s.

A NAL DC-8 parked inside/next to a hangar at Haneda Airport. It should be noted that this specific hangar would not have been constructed until the 1990s when the main facilities of the airport was moved outwards.

Douglas DC-8

Another airline, East African Airways, is seen operating a DC-8. This was a real airline jointly run by Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda between 1946 and 1977. However, the airline never operated the DC-8, though the livery is somewhat close to that used on its other aircraft.
