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.

Bomberguy Aviation History

Short documentary on the Republic XF/XR12 Rainbow, a long-range photo-reconnaissance aircraft developed in the mid 40’s for the USAF. She was the fastest multi-engined piston airplane everbuilt with a top speed of 460 mph and a service ceiling of 40,000ft. A commercial version was planned that would carry 46 passengers, but after USAF cancelled its order, it was not economical to build the airplane in small quantities.
