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,

Sikorsky's Giants

With a single replica, the director tried to represent several airplanes.

  • first the S-21 Russky Vityaz
  • then the S-22 Ilya Muromets
  • with less two engines, the replica is now acting as a raid aircraft (or passenger transport ? -we guess "Paris" on the sides-); which one ?
  • what is this scene with a painter and this pin-up ?
  • now painted in black, it's still the same replica now acting as the S-29A seen in Hell's Angels, itself acting as a German giant bomber !

Please note that a handful of Ilya Muromets served for mail and passenger transport in 1921/1922 but only between Moscow and Kharkov.

Now I've seen the movie and despite I don't understand Russian language, the different scenes with the S-22 replica are more explicit. Only the Pin-up and the painter are still unclear. Perhaps a Russian reader could explain it ?
A lot of screenshots added (mainly archive pictures and models). LVCDC 08:45, 28 November 2014 (MST)

  • First of all, thanks for adding this movie.
  • Scene with painter is about Richard Stone buying plane for crash in Hell Angels. Girl using for stocking's advertisment.
  • Is very interesting how movie try represent Sikorsky's life as less successfull than Tupolev while not showed years that Tupolev spent working in Prison-Bureau in Stalin times. 3loader 5 June 2015
