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

Videotape cover of Vernite Reksa!.

Animated film (1975)
Russian title: Верните Рекса!
English title: Give Rex back!

Svetlana Kharlap (voice of Seryozha)
Vsevolod Sanaev (voice of doctor Valerian Valerianovich)

Seryozha’s dog Rex dies after saving him from icy water. The parents ask the veterinary doctor not to tell Seryozha that his friend is gone. The boy, who thinks Rex is still alive and kept by the doctor, tries to get him back.

Note: This is an animated film. The aircraft shown in it are therefore not actual aircraft, however, where a reasonable depiction of an actual aircraft has been created, it has been identified as best as possible.

Antonov An-12

Quite a realistic sequence of An-12 landing, with flaps down and beacon lights on. It is clear that the artists were using a real photo for reference.


A much less realistic representation, although the number СССР-11159 did exist in reality and was carried by An-12.


Mil Mi-8 and Animated Airliners

The helicopter is most likely inspired by Mi-8. The rest of the planes are hard to guess. The propeller-driven aircraft carries a resemblance to DC-4, although it is more likely that animators kept Il-18 in mind. The planes on the back are similar to de Havilland Comet, but with only 2 engines instead of 4.


Animated Airliner

Surprisingly for a Soviet cartoon, this airliner carries SAS logo on the fin. The letters near the cockpit say “Tu”, although there is no resemblance of any Tupolev airplane.

A SAS Tu airliner.

Animated Airliners

The rest of the planes do not represent any recognizable real types.
