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,

This fictional story of U-96 and its crew shows the men serving aboard U-boats as ordinary individuals during World War 2. Despite some fictional events, the screenplay used an amalgamation of exploits of U-96 and some other U-boats (German submarine).

North American T-6

First aircraft seen during the attack at the straight of Gibraltar. In 1942, it would be a Fairey Swordfish.
