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

Messerschmitt Me 163 seen in The Story of Aviation.

The german Messerschmitt Me 163 is the only rocket powered aircraft to see operational use. Despite its speed exceeding 1 000 kph (then -in 1944- a world record) and two 30 mm cannon and a stupendous rate of climb for its time, its range of only 40 km and its excessive speed compare to the bomber waves makes it ineffective. Once its rocket was out of hypergolic propellants, it became a glider with nice handling but then its low speed made him an easy prey for allied fighter escort.

Around 300 Me 163 have been built.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Messerschmitt Me 163.
