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

Tip on a Dead Jockey poster.

Movie (1957)
French title : Contrebande au Caire

Robert Taylor (Lloyd Tredman)
Dorothy Malone (Phyllis Tredman)
Marcel Dalio (Toto del Aro)
Martin Gabel (Bert Smith)

An expatriate American living in Madrid, former Air Force pilot Lloyd Tredman (Robert Taylor) is haunted by his memories of the Korean War and refuses to fly. So when he loses his last dollar on a horserace fixed by a smuggler, he forces himself to accept a $25,000 offer to transport a box of contraband currency from Egypt to Spain. But as Tredman makes the return flight home, he discovers his cargo also includes heroin as he races across the Mediterranean with Interpol hot on his trail.

Vultee BT-13B Valiant

Registration N53317, c/n 91278.


Beechcraft D18S

False Egyptian registration SU-AAC (real was N80356).
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Civil Fixed-Wing).


Cessna 150


Grumman TBM-1C Avenger

Grumman TBM 1C Avenger N9394H (BuNo. 46122) wearing fictitious code F-939H. This airframe was already seen in On a island with you (1948) and in Thunder in the east (1953).
A French fighter is intercepting the Beechcraft, an Avenger acting as what should be a Grumman Hellcat ... But French Avenger and Hellcat were painted in dark color (Night Blue if used by the navy or dark ) not such a light one.

Seen through the cockpit.
