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,

The Aeronauts movie poster.

Movie (2019)
Russian title : Аэронавты

Felicity Jones (Amelia)
Eddie Redmayne (James Glaisher)
Himesh Patel (John Trew, James's friend)
Tom Courtenay (Arthur Glaisher, James's father)

Loosely based on the 5 September 1862 flight of British aeronauts James Glaisher and Henry Coxwell but Coxwell has been replaced by Amelia, a fictional character. Of course, the critical part of the flight led to excessive dramatization but the loss of consciouness of the heroes is real.

Balloon Models

Since the Montgolfier brothers flight, flying was a highly popular idea that led to the marketing of a wide variety of balloon-related products and souvenirs, mostly engravings and plates, here symbolized by these paper (?) models.

Hydrogen Balloon

The historical flight that achieved a record altitude was done with a coal gas-filled balloon.
