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

Animated/Fictional Aircraft

Does this even count? - Kooshmeister
It's debatable. See IMPDb Forum: Cartoons. Your opinion would be appreciated. Bthebest 05:55, 16 January 2011 (MST)
As excited as I am to see another movie added to the database, and especially to see Star Wars, I am still unsure. This is when I don't like being the executive decision maker. Yes, it would be good to hear from Kooshmeister, Lantzs09, and anyone else out there on the forum. Maybe because they do have names, it's okay? Never know, maybe we will one day we will have a specific fictional section and/or an animated section. Tobin Lee 10:00, 16 January 2011 (MST)
I suppose it could count provided the fictional aircraft appear alongside real ones or ones patterned after real ones. I know the old 90's cartoon SWAT Kats had a lot of interesting-looking "retro-futuristic" jets and helicopters alongside the SWAT Kats' "Turbokat" which was apparently designed after an F14 Tomcat. - Kooshmeister
Tobin's idea of a fictional section is a good idea. The discussion then becomes - do all all animated movies become fictional too? A good example is The Simpson's Movie which is obviously animated but the 'aircraft' are clearly intended to represent real ones. You also then have films like Independence Day which are real but feature CGI fictional aircraft.Bthebest 04:34, 20 January 2011 (MST)
