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

Nic De Jager (Jack Hind)

A pilot flying over the Kalahari Desert in Africa throws an empty Coca-Cola bottle out the window of his plane. It is found by a tribe of Bushmen who take the unusual object to be a gift from the gods. But because there is only one it breeds jealousy amongst the tribesmen until the elders tell one of their warriors, Xi, to take the "evil thing" away and throw it off the ends of the earth. Along his journey Xi encounters various "civilized" people.

Beech E55 Baron

The plane whose pilot drops the Coke bottle. It is only seen briefly in one distant shot and one shot of the interior.

Aérospatiale SA-321L Super Frelon

South African Air Force Aérospatiale SA-321L Super Frelon.
This helicopter is used by the military to try and locate Sam Boga's hideout in the banana forests. It is shot down by the terrorists using a bazooka.


Douglas DC-3A

Reg. N99210 Douglas DC-3A (c/n 1984 ?) with fiticious registration TN99210Z and Air Botswana name (but in the wrong place; on the real airliner, the company name was painted at wing section (on the right outer side of the screenshot)).
TN- prefix is for Congo not for Tanzania; and both countries are far away from Namibia nor the Botswana !
