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

Airplane II: The Sequel movie poster.

Movie (1982)
Also known as: Flying High II: The Sequel
French title : Y a-t-il enfin un pilote dans l'avion ?

Julie Hagerty (Elaine)
Robert Hays (Ted Striker)
Peter Graves (Captain Oveur)
James A. Watson, Jr. (Navigator Dunn)
Lloyd Bridges (McCroskey)
Raymond Burr (Judge D.L. Simonton)

A faulty computer causes a passenger space shuttle (Lunar X42) to head straight for the Sun. Ted Striker, just escaped from a mental hospital, is aboard. Could Elaine, his love, convince him to save the flight?

Lunar X42

The Houston Daily Journal titles about the Lunar Shuttle XR-2300. Lunar X42 is seen on the shuttle near the evacuation slide.


Boeing 747-121

A Pan Am Boeing 747 taxiing in the night.


Perhaps the same one landing ?


Shots with backgrounded archive footages already used in Airplane!

North American T-6


Dornier Do 17

Picture of a rear gunner aboard a Dornier Do 17. Same archive footage used in Airplane!.


Stinson L-5 Sentinel

Last second before impact on the cliff, coming from the right.


Unidentified Aircraft

Probably a Hollywood movie about the Pacific war already used as background. This model crashing into the ocean was seen in Baa Baa Black Sheep too.


Douglas DC-7

Douglas DC-7 N68N c/n 44275/496 seen during a test for the FAA.
Same aircraft in Airplane!.


Unidentified Aircraft


Rockwell Space Shuttle Enterprise OV-101

Probably a gliding test of Enterprise in 1977.


Rockwell Space Shuttle Columbia OV-102

(poster top right, hidden by the logo of the broadcaster) STS-1 or STS-2 launch pad view, 1981 (the single ones with the External Tank in white).
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

Upper left corner.

Unidentified Aircraft

"Made for Movie Shot" or action taken from a Godzila movie (which one ?) ?
As Godzilla seems biting a Space Shuttle (?), probably the first choice.
