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,

General Pratt's Glider

Brig. Gen. Don F. Pratt is dead on the very first hours of 6th June 1944 at Hiesvielle into the Waco glider christened The Fighting Falcon. The glider was really reinforced with armor plate for both the general and the crew. Despite manned by the best glider pilot (Lieutenant Colonel Murphy), the overloaded flight was difficult with the jeep and armor and lot of jerricans. The landing was made at high speed and the wet grass led the glider to skid on a long length and eventually hurting a tree. The copilot is crushed, the general has the neck broken, the pilot has the both legs broken and will walk no more before Christmas 1944. The Waco is broken just aft the trailing edge. So if the facts told by the G.I. are true, the scene has lots of unrealistic details. LVCDC 18:50, 23 December 2014 (MST)
