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

North American P-51K-15-NT Mustang

Reg. N51EW has a long story.
Built in 1944 as P-51K-15-NT s/n 44-12840 (airframe 111-36123) and quickly converted to a F-6K (photo reconaissance). Donated to Civil Air Patrol unit in 1946. After a first private owner, ended in Victory Air Museum, Mundelein, Ilinois (USA) in the end of 1960's. Under restoration and P-51D conversion (1982-1987) then christened Montana Miss LG W. Bought by Tom Cruise in 2001 and renamed Kiss Me Kate between 2006 and 2012.
Bottom left, a desk model; several pictures hanging around the hangar ... including some F-18s.

Grumman F-14 Tomcat

At the Naval Air Station North Island main gate, Coronado, California, USA.
The real entrance got a gate guardian as a pole-mounted A-4 Skyhawk (the type piloted by VADM J.B. Stockdale which name adorn the gate).
Computer animation done maybe from BuNo 159623 of Naval Air Warfare Center, Point Mugu Airpark, NAWC Point Mugu, California. Weapons changed (Sparrow erased) and fictitious "Captain Pete Mitchell / Maverick" and 3 kills (symbolysing the Mig-28 scored in Top Gun) added alongside the MODEX 114.
