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

S. V. Ilyushin ?

A famous picture of Sergey Vladimirovich Ilyushin in 1974. This picture seems digitaly modified in the movie as the head is different and no decoration ... but aircraft models are the same.

Various Memory

1 : Sukhoi Su-17M3K

From the book : OKB Sukhoi a History of the Design Bureau and its Aircraft, published by Midland Publishing in 1996, page 164,

OKB-Sukhoi-p164 Su17M3K.jpg

This type of shot is common in USSR (and even elsewhere) but some details are of particular interest to keep this identification among others options even of the same design bureau.

  • exact position of the wheels in relation to each other;
  • despite Black & White impression versus colored one in the movie, the pattern of colors is the same one;
  • two rocket pods weighted central shape;
  • adjoining right, a white spot is denoting a missile on the inner wing pylon.

10 : still mysterious

A biplane with a wide radial but no gull wing (so not a Polikarpov I-15 or I-153). Engine cowling's shape is not like on Polikarpov I-5. Polikarpov I-152/I-15 bis doesn't suit (wrong landing gear and a big single strut on the wings) nor Borovkov-Florov I-207. So what ?
A famous picture of a Siamese (Thailand) Vought V-93S seized by French in December 1940 could be a good candidate : biplane with N strut, landing gear, shape of engine cowling found on this late variant of the Vought Corsair ... but failed by her tricolored rudder.

Tu-134 and An-26 from Zhukovsky

The photos of Tu-134 and An-26 used an the movie in fictitious liveries and fake registrations, as spotted in Zhukovsky airport (one of the filming locations) around 2015: Comparing these photos with other available photos of various aircraft stored in UUBW made it possible to accurately identify these airplanes as RA-65606 ( and RA-29113 ( Juras14 (talk) 16:47, 23 October 2019 (MDT)
