Dear Friends:

A few 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,

Movie (1985)

Michael Douglas (Jack Colton)
Kathleen Turner (Joan Wilder)
Danny DeVito (Ralph)
Spiros Focás (Omar)
Avner Eisenberg (Jewel)
Paul David Magid (Tarak)

Joan Wilder is hired by Middle Eastern dictator Omar to write a sanitized version of his biography. He holds her prisoner in his fortress until she complies, with Jack Colton attempting to rescue her. It turns out Omar has stolen the sacred jewel of the local tribal peoples. Jack plans to steal back this jewel but in reality the "Jewel" is actually the tribes' holy man whom Omar is keeping captive alongside Joan.

Aérospatiale AS355 F1 Ecureuil 2

Omar flies Joan to his city in this helicopter. Whilst escaping later, Jack shoots it with the jet's machine guns and blows it up.
Registration CN-AIX, c/n 5245.


Fokker F27-600 Friendship

Fokker F27-600 Friendship of Royal Air Inter.

General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon (Mockup)

Omar keeps a single fighter jet at his airfield. When Jack, Joan and the Jewel are escaping they use the jet. Since Jack cannot fly, however, they drive out of the city in it, instead. For scenes of the jet driving out in the desert, it has a modified undercarriage and landing gear. Same aircraft in other works at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Military Fixed-Wing).

Note modified landing gear.
