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)

Curtiss AT-32D Condor

Reg. N12397 Curtiss AT-32D Condor c/n 49.
Well ... despite the Eiffel Tower, we are not at Le Bourget airport (which had very different building) but at the Grand Central Air Terminal, Glendale, California (as you could see it on Air Hostess (1933).

The funny thing is to find again this airliner at "Genève" (according to the screenplay). Yes ! Swissair flew the type but the colors were slighty different and (what a chance !) we can't see the tail assembly which is hidden by a car to keep secret the US registration.

(far right) Hora... Horatius !

Reg. G-AAXD Handley Page H.P.45 Horatius of Imperial Airways.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Civil Fixed-Wing).


This footage is really filmed at Aéroport de Paris-Le Bourget, Horatius being caught in front of Air Union (now known as UTA) hangar.
